Canvas commons template for consistency

Hazim Namik, Professional Teaching Fellow at the Faculty of Engineering, discusses the use of Canvas commons template in courses at the Faculty of Engineering.

Hazim has developed a course template which has been shared to Canvas commons. The course can be accessed by all University of Auckland staff, and it contains:


  • Course Homepage
  • Lecture Recordings
  • FAQs
  • Course Information
  • Getting Started


  • General Information

The template comes with files that explain how to edit the template to suit different courses. For example, how to change the assignments calendar at the course home page.

Do you want to apply these ideas in your course?
