Predesigned course templates are available in the Commons. Importing one of these templates into your course will give you a head start on meeting quality initiatives here at UF. The “UF Online Course Template” is designed for courses with the highest level of need and is aligned with the Quality Matters rubric. Variations of the online course template will soon be available for other modalities. 


Follow the Canvas Guides for importing Commons content into your course:

Searching For Our Templates

Uncheck the “Show Public Resources” button and type “template” into the search box. All available course template options will be displayed.


Are you part of a Commons Group?

Your department or office may have added you to a closed group in the Commons. Resources shared to this group are only visible to members of that group. Click the name of your group in the left column of the screen to see your group’s resources. 


Tip: Import the template into one of your “Template” courses to preview. If you don’t like it, you can reset your course content and start over.
