Edit Content

To format text and embed external links, YouTube Videos, and Flickr images, use the Rich Content Editor [1]. To gain access to all publicly available Files and Images from course Files, click the Content Selector [2] in the Sidebar. You can also quickly link to existing pages and past Discussions. When you are finished editing the Page, click the Save button [3]. Canvas saves a new version of the page each time a user saves, so no changes will ever be lost.
