Pages vs Modules

Our colleagues in our Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering have developed a lovely and helpful document explaining the differences between Pages and Modules in Quercus. As they write, “In Canvas/Quercus, a Module is a way to organize and display course content. They are buckets that hold any number of different types of elements – pages, assignments, files, links, etc. You can have as many modules as you’d like. Most commonly, they are sorted by time (Ex. Week 1, Week 2, Week 3) or by type (ex. Assignments, Readings, Lectures, etc.). There’s no right or wrong way, you get to choose that based on how you run your course. Pages, on the other hand, are more like webpages. They have a WYSIWYG editor that allows you to add text, embed media, and link to other course elements. Often, they are used to provide descriptions and explanations – they are one of the pieces that can be stored in the buckets. ” Please check out this and other helpful hints at
