In Canvas, Modules are like folders of links to course site activities and resources that help instructors present related items in one place. For example, in Module “Wk 4 Health Analysis Charting,” students will find direct links to all the readings, lecture videos, images, charts, etc. they need to learn about working with health analysis charts. They can directly access activities, such as quizzes or assignments, in the order in which they should be completed. With Modules, students can easily find what they need to do without the frustration of clicking all over a course site to find an assignment or a resource. You can set rules for Modules that require students to complete certain activities before they move on to the rest. Tip: When using Modules, remove other tools, such as Assignments and Quizzes, from the navigation so students access your course materials from Modules only.
You can access all the Canvas Guides about using Modules for help with specific questions and/or schedule a consultation with one of our consultants.
