If you want, for example, to create a page called "Course Materials" and link to it on the left hand navgation, follow these steps:

  1. Go to the page you want to link to (such as course materials) and copy the URL at the top of the browser. the URL should end in the form "pages/name-of-page" where the hyphens replace spaces.
  2. Click on course "Settings" at the bottom of the left hand navigation.
  3. Click the "Apps" tabs across the top of the setting page.
  4. Choose the redirect tool (blue arrow) from the list.
  5. Click "Add App".
  6. Enter the name you want for your left nav tab. Note: We suggest that you not use terms that are already on the Canvas left nav, such as Syllabus. It's best to use a slightly different name such as "Course Syllabus" to avoid confusion.
  7. Paste the URL of the page you want to link to.
  8. Do not click "open in new page" but click all other options.
  9. Click "Save".
  10. Go to the navigation tab to drag and drop the new tab where you want it.
  11. Click "Save".
