Canvas has several options for choosing an effective homepage for your course. They have different advantages:
Your choice will depend on the structure of your course. Many ISU instructors choose a front page or the syllabus as a way to present an organized, streamlined introduction to the course. Whichever homepage you choose, your students may find it useful if you show recent announcements at the top.
Consider using the Online Course Essentials (ONCE) with the ISU Course Template.
Additionally, follow these recommendations to keep the homepage simple and clean.
