Can I add items to my course navigation menu?

To add other items to your course navigation menu, you can use an app called Redirect Tool. To use this app,

  •  Click Settings in your course navigation menu
  • Click the Apps tab
  • Search for Redirect Tool, then select Add App
  • In the “Name” field, enter the name of the resource that you’d like to appear in your course navigation menu.
  • Enter the URL of the website or page in the “URL Redirect” field.
  • Check “Show in Course Navigation.”
  • Click submit.
  • Refresh your page. The new item should appear in your course menu.
  • A caveat: you should only use Redirect Tool to link to external web sources, not pages within your Canvas course. If there’s a resource that students need to access frequently, consider adding it to your course home page instead.
