College Specific Templates

Blueprint Courses

Early June 2017 Canvas Instructure released Blueprint Course feature which makes it easy for administrators or designers to deploy, update, and maintain course design templates or components across any number of courses or instructors. For an individual institution, Blueprint Courses allows Canvas admins to create content and learning objects, lock specific settings or content items, and push updates to all associated courses through course syncing. 

Any items that are not locked can be managed individually by a course instructor. Content that can be managed by an instructor is not overwritten when the Blueprint Course is synced to associated courses, and new content created in any associated course is also not affected. More information:

Individual colleges are investing the feature, in the meantime please refer to the information below in regards to a template.
