Design Tools for Canvas: Build Courses with the Multi-Tool
Multi-Tool is part of the Design Tools package integrated within Canvas that provides additional tools for streamlining the creation of course sites and improving the style and design of course banners, content pages, assignments, discussions and quizzes. The Multi-Tool can be used to quickly build the structure of a course and modify due dates for all activities in a Canvas site.
Multi-Tool consists of three tools that are used to simplify and speed up the creation and maintenance of a course:
Page Templates - Create templates for each type of content pages you create (i.e. weekly overview, lab guidelines, presentation expectations, etc.) and then duplicate across multiple modules (units/weeks).
Module Builder - Quickly generate your course shell including placeholders for page templates, assignments, quizzes and discussions.
Due-date modifier - View and adjust due-dates for every graded assignment, quiz and discussion for your entire course and all on one page.
