  • When you can edit course pages, you can view the page history and see the date, time, and author of any changes made to the page. Page editors can also roll back the page content to a previous version of the page.

    The images shown in this lesson are for the instructor view, but the same steps apply for students who have access to edit course pages.

    Notes:

    • Even when granted editing access in page settings, students cannot roll back a prior version of a page within a course. They can only roll back page content for pages within student groups.
    • HTML and CSS changes are not stored in the page history.

    How do I set a Front Page in a course?

    The Course Home Page is the first view your students will see when they enter your course. For the Course Home Page, you can customize a page from your course Pages and have it display as the Course Home Page.

    If you want to change the Course Home Page to a custom page, you must first set the page as the Front Page. The Front Page is a designation that shows Canvas which page can be used for the Course Home Page. Use this page to show a welcome message, links, images, or other information for students.

    Notes:

    • Before setting the Front Page, the page must be published.
    • Once you set a Front Page, you cannot remove the Front page. However, you can change the Front Page as much as you would like, or set another page as the Front Page.
    • Before setting a Front page, the Pages link in Course Navigation will open to the Pages Index. However, once you have selected a Front Page, the Pages link will always open to the Front Page. To return to the Pages Index, click the View All Pages button.
    • The Pages Front Page can also be set to display recent course announcements.
