There are 9 different event types in CanvasLIVE.
|EVENT TYPE||DESCRIPTION||TYPE||GREAT FOR||EXAMPLES|
|Informal chats where people join to discuss a tool or topic of interest. Meet-ups include at least one facilitator to help jump-start the conversation.|
|Short informal demonstrations of a tool in action. If you want to demo a 3rd party tool (like an LTI), be sure to focus on its integration with Canvas.|
(No demos of features in closed beta, please)
|Informal reverse Q&A on Twitter. The 'host' of the chat posts 3-6 questions related to a topic on Twitter over the course of 1 hour and others chime in with their comments and feedback. Should include #hashtags.|
|Events presented by one person or a group of people on a specific tool or topic of interest. It often includes a slide deck with open Q&A throughout (or at the end of) the session.|
|Curated events where a moderator brings together a group of 2-4 people for a cafe-style discussion around a tool or topic.|
When a school or community member hosts a workshop.
|Opportunities for users to experience or use a feature, a tool, or an LTI in a sandbox or demo Canvas course.|
(1-3 weeks facilitated or self-directed)
|On-site conferences or events promoted in CanvasLIVE. This includes unconferences, too!|
PARTY or GAME
