Revise your Course Navigation.

In your upcoming Canvas course, the Course Navigation Menu will contain the tools included in the course template. You can enable and disable tools as needed. Follow the steps below to manage the tools.

Tip: You can use the information in this article as you work through Step 3: Revise in the Checklist for Reusing Content from Moodle. Go back to the checklist for additional steps.

Enable only the tools you will use.

To make your course easier for students to navigate, enable only the tools you will use in your course. Follow steps to manage Course Navigation links in How do I Manage Course Navigation links? (opens new window).

Tip:  You can use many external tools integrated into UVACanvas by adding them to your Course Navigation Menu. For a list of available tools, see the Integrated Tools page (opens new window).

If you used the External Tool tool in your Moodle site, these links appear in Canvas modules and may need to be updated. Any broken links to external tools will be logged in Migration Exception Log as in the following example:

"External tool content "Moodle URL" not found for "pages" at "Module Name in Canvas" and did not migrate."

If you prefer to add these links as menu items in your course navigation menu, you can add them as a Redirect Tool:

  1. In your Canvas course that includes students, go to Settings > Apps.
  2. Select Redirect Tool.
  3. Select Add App.
  4. Enter a name for the tool to have in the Course Navigation Menu and the URL (link to the web page).
  5. Select Show in Course Navigation.
  6. Add App.
  7. Refresh the page in your browser for the link to appear in the menu.
  8. After setting up the link in the menu, you can remove it from the Modules.
