Q. Is there a way for students to download or print a syllabus from the Canvas syllabus feature?


Some browsers will let you right click and print the syllabus without the sidebars.  Print screen may also work depending on the browser you’re using.  The right click and print function works in Chrome and Firefox.  Here is what Canvas recommends if you want to make a syllabus available to students…

If you want the students to have access to a syllabus file (PDF, Word Doc or something similar).

  1. Click on the “Edit Syllabus Description” Button on the right sidebar.
  2. Then use the right sidebar “Files” tab to upload your syllabus file and insert a link to it in the Syllabus description.
  3. If you highlight that link and click on the link tool in the Rich Text Editor you can choose to “Disable inline previews for this link”

Doing this will force students to download the file rather than preview the first page.
