What are Pages and how do I use them?

Pages in Canvas are like the Wiki pages found in Blackboard - only far more powerful.


Pages inside of a course is where you can put in content and educational resources that are part of your course but don't necessarily belong in an assignment or that you want to refer to in multiple assignments as well. This is a place where you can include text and video and mix that up as well or links to your files. You can even make links to the other pages that you can create. If you've ever used a wiki, this is essentially a wiki with a more usable interface. You can see the common pages, the pages that have changed most recently since we keep the entire history of the page to see how it changes over time.

Edit or Create Pages
You can edit Pages to create links to other parts of your course. Or you can create new pages with new content. You can add text, images, media, links, and/or other files into the Pages. You can put Pages into Modules for your students to view.
