Using pages in your Canvas course

Canvas pages are a place where you can add content, video, images and links to files and external sites. They are great to provide students with context and descriptions for the resources you are sharing, rather than relying solely on the item-by-item structure of Modules. Pages work best when used in conjunction with Modules or linked to other places in the course such as the Homepage or Syllabus. 

Motivate your students in modules by adding prerequisites and requirements

To encourage students to engage in their ungraded coursework and readings, you can set up modules with prerequisites or requirements that students must accomplish before moving to the next module(s). These include requiring students to view an item, mark the task as completed, contribute to a page or discussion, submit an assignment or score a minimum number of points in graded activities.
