Announcements may be just one component of the communication plan that you devise for your course. (Virtual office hours might be a part of this plan too!) Like all of the pieces of your course it’s important to be transparent and intentional in your use and explanation of these plans to ensure that students follow the unique guidance and expectations that you have for your course and your virtual course space.
It’s important to include a LOT of information in a syllabus so that students can access a variety of information about your course as well as support services available to them. However, it’s also important to make this content easy to navigate on your course site. Although you can perform this function by using HTML anchor tags, the easier and faster method for doing this is by using some new options available in our DesignPlus Tools in Canvas.
The tool that works best for this functionality is the Accordion/Expander/Tab tool. The video below demonstrates both how this tool functions and how to add it to a page in Canvas using the DesignPlus Tools interface.
This can often happen when you are copying and pasting content from one location to another. In most instances utilizing the clear formatting option in the menu bar (large italic T followed by a small subscript X) will resolve this issue. Sometimes you may need to reapply a style after clearing the formatting. You can do this by using the drop down menu bar item where formatting styles are listed (paragraph, heading 1, etc.).
