How do I reorder Module items?

Canvas recently introduced a new page design called the New Canvas User Interface (UI). Depending on your Canvas view, your page design may vary from the images shown in this lesson. However, the functionality and location of the components remain the same.

You can reorder module items after you've added them to a module. You can manually drag and drop the module item, or you can use the Move To option, which is also accessible for keyboard users. You can also reorder modules.
