Filed in Miscellaneous by on August 18, 2016

Ok! We have gotten a lot of requests on how one can create buttons for their canvas courses themselves. I LOVE that everyone wants to be self sufficient! So here it is – how to create buttons!

Ok! Now we have a button! Now go make some more! 🙂

When you’re in Canvas, you’ll be uploading these buttons in the “File” section first. Then you can add them to your Home Page. To have buttons line up nicely – I insert a table into the page, then add a button to each cell. The templates are set up for how many cells across the table is. Most commonly used is 3 buttons across and then however many down you need. Follow the steps below:

Buttons Table 1

Buttons Table 2
