How do I add a section to a course as an admin?
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 also display for each student within the course People page and the Gradebook.
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.
