We know the beginning of the year is full of excitement and long to-do lists. We understand that starting with a blank Canvas course can be overwhelming. It can be stressful to try to remember how to create and link an Absent button after a summer break. As a result, we’ve included a simple, practical template in your Canvas courses. It has a homepage complete with an absent button linked to the absent page. It also includes a few more pages that teachers can quickly customize for students and families.
