How do I add a section to a 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.
You can add a section to your course by editing your course Settings in Canvas. Sections help subdivide students within a course and offer section-specific options such as varied due dates for assignments, discussions, and quizzes.
Sections can also be created for students who need extra time in a course, such as if a student has an incomplete grade.
Note: Sections may be added by your institution's student information system (SIS). Some course sections may have already been created for you.
View the section in your course.
You can add section dates and other details by editing the section details.
Note: The sections are displayed in the order in which they are created. You can not move sections to organize them, but you can edit the sections.
