As you move into your new school year and new Canvas courses, you may want to make a few changes to customize Canvas to make it easier to navigate and more personalized. The following videos will show you how to:

  • Change Course Code – Can’t tell which class you are in from the link text on the upper left? Change it to what you want. 
  • Rename Section to Period Name – If you teach multiple periods or sections of a course, you can customize the names of each class when assigning work from something like 150867 to 4th Hour Biology. It will also show these names in the gradebook.
  • Copy Content to New Course – Move your content from a course you created last year into the new, empty courses from Aspire or PowerSchool that is syncing students and grades this year.
  • Customize the Course Color or Image on the Dashboard – personalize your class even more!
