How do I edit a course page as a student?

The default setting in Canvas is to restrict editing of pages to Instructors only. However, Instructors can allow students to edit pages. If you can edit a page in your course, your instructor has allowed you to contribute content to the page.

When you can edit a page, you can also view the history of a course page.
