Making a Homepage in Canvas

Hey Teachers!

Do you have a homepage in Canvas? This is the first thing your students, parents, administrators see when they navigate to your class. What will their first thoughts be about your course? Did you know you can put up to the most recent 15 announcements on your homepage automatically? Can users find the necessasry information easily in your course? You can help the users of your course by customizing your home page.

Have you seen this video already?

Most teachers have some sort of homepage but some links are not working. Do you need help making them work? We are here to support you. Let us know what you need. We are happy to help.

As you continue your virtual learning there may be times that engaging students can be a struggle. Check out this link for 25 ways to engage your students in virtual learning. How many of these have you already tried? Maybe try a new one each week. Mix things up and surprise your students!
