Several built-in wizard tools were developed for In-context help within Canvas. The wizard tools provide a step-by-step guide for activities such as creating courses, creating assignments, or creating a calendar event.

Canvas has In-context help built into the application. The How do I ...? link near features will open a help window pane inside the feature that instructs users on how to use the particular feature.
