How do I customize the Subject Home Page as an instructor?
This lesson applies to users at institutions that have enabled the Canvas for Elementary user interface.
In Canvas for Elementary, each subject may include a Home tab. Along with subject announcements, the Home tab displays content designated as the Subject Home Page on the subject's Pages Index Page.
