Moved from email for wider input...

I am trying to figure out how to embed an html file that is in my canvas class into a module so that it is seen without having to click on the link.  What am I doing wrong?

I am not familiar with a feature for embedding html files. I know how this is done with pdf and word files that you've uploaded into Canvas. If your html file is in your course, I bet this method will probably work. 

First, you need to create a page with your file and then you want to add it to a module.

So, go to Pages >> Add a Page, and then click on the Documents icon and then select Course Documents.

Find and select your document. It will be inserted on the page.

Click on it, and you will see the words 'link options'.

A window will open on the far right. Check the "Automatically open..." box.

Click on Done. Click on Save.

Canvas does not give users much power in this area, but I've seen some clever hacks.  I have played around with some of them in the past, but it has always been more hassle than it was worth.

Here is one thread I found that could be useful

Embedding an HTML file.

I'm curious to know exactly what you are trying to accomplish.  Perhaps there is a different way.  Vivie's suggestion is great.

When you link any file, there is an icon present after the link in student view where they can "preview" the file without downloading. It shows it right there on the page. Then they can "minimize" to get rid of it. Does this help? See attached.

Wait, how do you embed (insert) an image in this forum?
