Preparing your course

walks through the setup of the content in your course.
|2. Browse your desk copy||To browse your desk copy of the publication, open your Canvas course and click on any of the chapter assignment links. Below the grading screen you'll see a link for Sample Chapters. This allows you to browse through the publication just as students see it.|
|3. Test as a student||Use the Canvas student view (or create a new student user in your course) and obtain a test access key from our CustomerCare team so you can view as a student would. Use this to ensure the publication links are available to students and working as expected prior to course start.|
