March 23, 2021
Items with due dates such as assignments, quizzes and discussions automatically get added to the Course Summary and student To-Do List once a due date is set, but what about other elements of a course, such as readings and videos? Marking these items as “to-dos” in modules will add them to the Course Summary and the student To-Do List, which can be a great way to help students stay on top of coursework. The video below covers everything you need to know about how to mark items as “to-do” in Canvas.
- Use modules to sequence your content and assignments.
- Use pages to share links, readings and videos.
- Mark items as “to-do” so they will appear on the Course Summary and the To-Do List on the student Dashboard.
