Course Readiness Checklist - Canvas Skip to main content

Here are a few last things to check before launching your course.

This list applies to all courses inside Canvas. If you’ve migrated a course from another learning management system, there may be some additional points you should check before students enter the course. If so, the proof-your-migrated-course checklist may be a helpful starting place.


As you continue to use Canvas, you may find it helpful to manage your specific course preparation steps by adding an unpublished module in your course. You can then create pages in this module with links to course content that relies on external tools, notes on specific settings, communications to share with students, or a list of student groups to re-create.
