BoG 10/19/2015: Leveling Up Group Engagement

Blog Post created by on Oct 19, 2015

Groups are highly collaborative and interactive places. They are places for people to network and bond over shared ideas and stories. In an effort to foster this engagement, we're creating some fun activities that make group participation even more exciting!


Monthly Blogging Challenges


PaperPumpkin.pngWe have created monthly blogging challenges to prompt member stories and inspiration. During the month of October, anyone who writes a blog in either the Canvas for Professional Development, K-12 or Higher Education groups will receive a 'paper pumpkin' badge which can be featured on your profile. This month's topic is to write about a Canvas feature that helped in the transition of a paper-based assignment or activity to a paperless or enhanced activity in Canvas. Share your tips, tricks, trials and tribulations. Please remember to tag your post paperpumpkin


Resource Documents

Create resource documents in any Canvas Community group and share your wisdom. Community Team will award this badge to select documents that show long-term value or effective just-in-time solutions.
