The Canvas Syllabus Tool provides an area where instructors can post information regarding their course as well as an automatically-generated list of assignments, the class calendar, and grade weighting information.

We recommend that you only post a short description, contact information, and link to a PDF version of your actual syllabus rather than copying, pasting and reformatting your entire syllabus here.

Also, since the assignments are listed by date, it’s a good practice to add due dates to quizzes and other assignments – otherwise, they are listed at the bottom of the table in alphabetical order.

The Canvas Community website provides more information on this tool and step-by-step instructions on uploading a PDF and linking to it, adding and changing due dates, and weighting grades can be found in the Canvas Instructor Guide article “How do I use the Syllabus as an instructor?“.
