How do I change the Course Home Page?
You can change your Course Home Page to 1) the Recent Activity Dashboard, 2) Pages Front Page, 3) the Course Modules, 4) the Assignment List, or 5) the Syllabus.
Select Home Page Layout
View Recent Activity Dashboard
The Recent Activity Dashboard lets participants see the most recent notifications and interactions for this course. It is very similar to the User Dashboard where users first log in but only shows content for the specific course.
View Pages Front Page
Pages Front Page allows instructors to design the course homepage and include links, images or rich media. Students will be able to interact with the content added to this page. If you have already set a Front Page in your course, Canvas will display the name of your Front Page next to the Pages Front Page option. If you want to change your Front Page, click the Change link, which will redirect to the Pages index and allow you to easily set a new Front Page.
Note: When the Pages Front Page is selected as the home page display, the Course Home Page will not update accordingly unless a Front Page is assigned in Pages. Please be aware that new courses created with Draft State no longer produce a default front page. Therefore, to select a Front Page, you will need to create a new page in Pages and associate it as the course Front Page. See the Pages chapter for more details.
View Course Modules
The Course Modules/Sections allows instructors to organize the course into modules or sections.
View Assignment List
The Assignment List shows the list of assignments for the course with upcoming and recent assignments at the top of the page.
