Do you want to customize the look of your Canvas course? Have you clicked on the HTML Editor link when editing a Canvas page or assignment and thought it looked too confusing for you? In this workshop we will demystify the HTML code that describes how your content looks in Canvas. Participants will learn about HTML tags and how to modify them, including

  • floating and setting margins around images
  • changing colors with hexadecimal codes
  • use <div> tags to highlight important information without compromising readability
  • incorporating advanced tab and accordion interactions to organize longer content sections

Sample Canvas pages will be available through Canvas Commons. Participants are encouraged to bring their own laptop to work with these provided workshop materials.
