Students often express:
“I wish my Canvas courses were more consistent.  It’s hard to find the content I need.”
With the use of this customizable template, instructors can use the recommended course design framework in their new, BLANK, face to face Canvas course to present their content and assignments to students.



This template is a framework for organizing materials in your Canvas course. Once you copy the template into your BLANK Canvas course, you can customize it as you wish, and add your content.

Sample Canvas module

The template includes:

  • a customizable syllabus
  • a modules structure to sub-divide your content by week or topic
  • suggested components for each module
  • links for students to CSU and Canvas support, academic integrity guidelines, library resources, and more

Because these items are already framed into the template, you can focus on adding your content.

Students frequently ask for consistent organization and navigation :

  • students quickly find course content, which reduces questions about finding materials
  • instructors quickly and easily maintain courses in Canvas.
