How do I change the language preference for 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.

You can change the language settings for your course to override user and account settings. This feature should probably only be used for foreign language courses.
