Posting Online Content

The ability to post content in Canvas is wide and varied.  Canvas courses at USF are frequently organized with a modules theme.  The student sees vertically stacked modules representing components of the course, including an introductory "getting started" or similar type module, and then additional modules based on weeks or content, whichever is preferred.  Canvas has produced a fairly comprehensive short video that covers the preparation of modules and the scheduling of their release, as well as the types of content you can put in it.

More resources about posting content are shown below.  If you are looking for simple, condensed instructions on how to do certain things, like just post video content, consult the "Simple Steps" page at right.
