Hide unnecessary items in your Canvas sandbox course navigation menuby going to your course settings and clicking on the Navigation tab on the top middle. You can disable and enable and reorder any items you wish, but we recommend instructors make the following links VISIBLE to students: Home (default), Announcements, Syllabus, Modules, People, Grades, and Student Feedback on Instruction. Additional links that you may wish to make visible include: Library, Attendance (if you want to use this tool in a Face-to-Face class), and any third-party publisher links that are appropriate, such as Pearson MyLab or McGraw-Hill.
