How to Use the Canvas Syllabus the Right Way

Are you among the cadre of instructors who disables the Canvas Syllabus page in your course navigation? Let me show you a nifty way to organize your syllabus content so it’s easier for students to access (meaning they’re more likely to actually read it!). While we’re at it, I hope to change your mind about the much-maligned, often misunderstood Course Summary feature. C’mon along!

  1. This is amazing! I am one of those instructors that hides the syllabus page and after watching this video, I am going to try out your suggestions.

  2. That seemed as it was very easy to do but you did it so quick. Is there a video of what you did and how you did it?

    • Hi, Carol,

      Glad you liked it. This video was intended to be the “how to” with all the steps. Given that I’ve only got a 5-minute window with the Byte-sized format, things do tend to happen fairly quickly. My suggestion would be to pause the video after each step to give yourself a chance to try it. Then hit Play again when you’re ready for the next step.

      Hope that helps!
