Instructors may put the entire syllabus in the description area or they may link to a document such as the example syllabus below. When Instructors link to a document you can click on the link to download the document or click the preview icon to view the document directly on the page. Below the syllabus description is a list of all course events (plain text) and assignments (bold text). In some cases instructors may not use the syllabus tool in Canvas. If this is the case, you will not see the syllabus link in the left navigation and the instructor will link to the syllabus on a different page or in a module.
The syllabus page shows a table-oriented view of the course schedule, and the basics of course grading. You can add any other comments, notes, or thoughts you have about the course structure, course policies or anything else.
To add some comments, click the "Edit" link at the top.
