Customize Your Canvas Homepage

Spring 2019 Canvas course shells are now available to faculty. It might be time to give some thought to the basic structure of your course.

Research has shown that the design of online course sites is an important factor for student learning and success. Consistent course design may be one of the most vital factors. Students have reported difficulty navigating course sites across the curriculum. Course sites that are designed to a standard allow students to concentrate on the content, not on hunting for information. 

The course Homepage is a great place to start, and it’s actually quite easy to create a Homepage that is engaging, informative, and easy to navigate. We’ve developed a tutorial to assist you.

Just need help getting started? Want to rethink your entire course site structure? Interested in a review of your course site compared to research-based standards? Thinking about a total redesign of your course? OIT Instructional Support staff are ready to assist you, simply complete a support request.
