Course Syllabus

The syllabus page in Canvas shows an automatically generated view of the course calendar and all graded activities. As new graded activities are published to your course they are automatically added to the syllabus page with appropriate due dates and grade weights when used.

In addition to these automated syllabus elements, you can add text, links, videos and anything else you usually include on your syllabus.  Here are a few recommended items.
