STEP TWO. In the previous step, you created a new Canvas course space, and now you will tweak that space in the Settings area.
Here are some suggestions I hope will be useful:
1. Details: Image Card. You can add an image card to any Canvas course: adding an image card. You can even grab the image from Flickr using a built-in Flickr image search:
6. Set as Front Page. Next, click on View All Pages (this gives you access to all the pages for that course space), and then Set as Front Page.
7. Publish. Now click on Home, and then click Choose Homepage. Then choose Pages: Front Page (the page you just created) as your course homepage. When you have done that, click Publish. You now have a course space that is ready to use.
