Course Navigation is a series of links on the left side of your screen that help you get to where you want to go inside of a Canvas course.
When you create a new course, by default, you will see fifteen links:
Course Navigation can be used to:
- Explain to your students how to navigate inside of the course.
- Move quickly to the activities or tasks that you need to complete.
- Reorder Course Navigation links in a way that makes sense to you.
