How do I create a Front Page and use it as the Home page for my Canvas site?
By default, most Canvas sites display the Modules page as the Home page for the site. Instructors, TAs and Designers can create a "Front" page in the Pages tool and assign that page as the Home page for the course site.
Note: You can format text, embed images and video and link to documents in your Files tool. More information:
