KTH's templates for Canvas rooms

To make it easier for students to navigate in Canvas rooms and to help teachers to more quickly arrange a structure in the rooms in Canvas, Canvas rooms are prepared with different templates. Below you can read more about KTH's different templates and how to access them.

Adjusted Canvas templates

Canvas rooms all initially look the same. To facilitate the work in Canvas, different templates are imported into the rooms before teachers and students have access. The work of developing and implementing templates for Canvas rooms is ongoing. Current templates are either automatically uploaded to Canvas rooms when the rooms are created or they can be downloaded from Canvas Commons. The teacher who do not want to use the content from a template can edit and replace it with their own material. Read more below about the templates that are centrally published from KTH.
