Pages are where you can put content and educational resources that do not fit well in an assessment (e.g., an assignment, quiz or graded discussion). This is a place where you can include text, images, video, and links to your files. You can even make links to other pages. If you’ve ever used a wiki, pages are essentially wikis with a more usable interface. Canvas also keeps the entire history of the page so you can see how it changes over time.
In this Challenge, build a Unit Overview Page. Include basic information introducing the unit and embed a media comment somewhere on the page. Some tips for items to include on the page are:
Introduction to the unit (background context, what the unit will cover, links to other resources in or outside of the course, files, images, media)
[NOTE TO CHALLENGE LEADER: You can customize this assignment by requiring a particular format for the unit page. If your school has a desired template, create a page in this course as an example and link to it on this Challenge page.]
In addition to this task, visit the Challenge Q&A Discussion and post a response to one of the following topics: 1) A question you have about creating pages, 2) Collaboration ideas for using wiki pages that are editable by students, 3) Tips for using pages to provide meaningful content and educational resources.
