How do I edit a page in my course?

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.

As an instructor, after you have created a page for your course, you can edit the page at any time.

By default, only instructors (teachers) can edit pages. However, you can grant permission to allow students or anyone to edit and contribute to the page.
