Modules

Modules control the entire flow of the course, along with its content.

Note: Your instructor may choose to hide the Modules link in Course Navigation. If the Modules link is not available, you can still access Module items through other areas of Canvas, such as the Syllabus or Course Home Page. Alternatively, your instructor may choose to hide all Course Navigation links except for Modules. If other Course Navigation links are not available, your instructor wants you to navigate the course using Modules.

Open Modules

If you choose to collapse or expand one or more modules, the Modules Index Page retains the state of each module.

View Discussions

 

Discussions are organized into three main areas.

Discussions:  These are current discussions within the course. Discussions are ordered by most recent activity. You will only see this section heading if there are discussions within this section.  

Pinned Discussions: These are discussions that your instructor wants you to pay specific attention to and will appear at the top of the Discussions page. You will only see this section heading if there are discussions within this section as designated by your instructor.    

Closed for Comments:  These discussions have been manually closed for comments, or the discussion is past the available from/until date. These are discussions that are only available in a read-only state and are ordered by most recent activity. You will always see this section heading, even if there are no discussions within this section.
