Common Operations


In CanvasLMS, items(page, file, assignment, quiz, etc.) are grouped into modules, and courses are constructed by assembling modules.
Creating items and adding them into modules can be done with a common operation.

  1. Click on the (1) [+] symbol next to the module prepared for each lesson.
  2. Click on (2) and select the type of an item to add.
    The basic operations shown in 1. and 2. are used for all type of items, including files, assignments and quizzes.
  3. When deleting items, be careful not to leave items in each menu that are no longer needed.
    Items exist in each menu by type and are not deleted by removing them from the module.

Publish Courses

Make the Course Status [Published] by clicking on the [Publish] button, then students can access the items in the course.
When a course is [Unpublished], you will not be able to exchange messages with students by Inbox.

※After the Course Status is set to "Published", a notification will be sent to students when each item is published.
 It is recommended that you complete the necessary content at the beginning of the semester before publishing the course.

Publish Items

Items in the course can be individually controlled to be published/unpublished.
Items added to a module will only be accessible to students if both the module and the item are published.


This allows announcements to be created and all users in the course to be notified.It is possible to select that notification of the created announcement and replies to the created announcement are received with the notification settings.
