Publish items and modules

Canvas allows you to work on a draft of your course content (e.g., quizzes, assignments, pages) before making it visible to students. When you are ready for students to see the content, you will need to publish the individual item and the module in which it is contained.

1. To publish an item or module, click on the publish icon to the right of the item name.

2. To unpublish an item module, click the green publish icon.

NOTE: If your items are in an unpublished module or unpublished course, the content is not visible to students even though the individual items are published. Be sure to publish the module and follow these instructions to publish your course.
