Faculty now have access in Canvas a Canvas Template that you can use as a base to build your Canvas Course. Chock full of helpful tips and a clear layout in Modules, this template is a great starting place as you build out your Canvas course for the Fall. Even if you do not choose to directly import the template, you can use the template for inspiration, exploring the structure that it provides students.
You can access and explore the Fall 2020 Remote Learning Template here.
If you previously built out weekly modules for your course and you are importing your previous Canvas course, you may find that you want to use the template for inspiration and not copy it directly.
If this is your first time using sequential weekly modules than we recommend that you copy the course as a starting place.
We recommend you selectively import the template, selecting the modules that you want to import rather than importing the whole course. The instructions can be found below.
