How do I publish 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.
If you have permission to publish your course, you can publish your course in the Course Home Page sidebar or in the Course Setup Checklist.
- Publishing a course is a course permission. If you cannot publish your course, your institution has restricted this feature.
- A course will not be available to students until published.
