The Canvas Syllabus Export Tool provides a quick way to download your Canvas syllabus as a PDF document. The Export Tool will download the Syllabus page as well as the content of any linked page as a combined PDF.


To use the Syllabus Export Tool, you must turn it on for each course in which you want to use it.

  1. Open your course in Canvas.
  2. Go to Settings in the course navigation and select the Navigation tab.
  3. Scroll down until you find Syllabus Export. It will likely be in the second list on the page, which includes navigation items that are currently disabled.
  4. Click on the three vertical dots to the right of the Syllabus Export item and select Enable.
  5. Scroll to the bottom of the page and select Save.
  6. You should now see Syllabus Export as one of the options on your course navigation menu. When you click on it, it will open a blank page and trigger a PDF download that contains your Canvas syllabus.
