We want the Canvas Community to be a place to help users find answers, share ideas and network or collaborate with other like-minded people. We want you to enjoy your experience as an active member and participate often. However, as a member, we ask that you respect the community code.

 

The Canvas Community Code

 

  1. Be cool.
    It’s OK to be critical and express frustration from time-to-time, but rudeness is not acceptable. Always treat others with respect. We’re in this together.

  2. Be you.
    You are encouraged to build your profile and presence, yet discouraged from cloning yourself. Always log in with the same account to prevent creating duplicate accounts.

  3. Pitch ideas, not products.
    Hey, we know there are a lot of amazing ed-tech tools out there. If you want to share ways these have been helpful in teaching, please do. But if you’re a third party vendor or partner, this is not the place to generate sales leads.

  4. Stay on target.
    This community is your place to discuss and network about all things Canvas. If you want to sell a couch or find someone with whom to take long walks on the beach, there are other sites for those things.

 

We trust you’ll abide by these guidelines (because you’re awesome). With the exception of Guides comments and Release Notes comments, comments are not deleted in any other areas of the Canvas Community unless you stray; our Community Team reserves the right to scold, suspend, or even ban you from the community.
