Inside of the Canvas learning management system you are able to create modules. Modules are essentially folders that contain resources, activies, assignments, and assessments that are intended to be grouped together. Modules can be organized as weeks, quarters, units, or any other categories. Once you have created multiple modules, you are able to control student access based on several different options including setting a date when a specific module will become available, or by requiring students to complete a previous module before moving on to the next one.
