Commons is a great tool for sharing Canvas course content. It'd be even better if, when a given piece of content was updated in Commons, users who have imported that piece of content into one of their Canvas courses got a notification telling them about the change and giving them the opportunity to apply the change to their course or not.


User goals

As an instructor:

  • I can import content to my course from Commons
  • When content I have imported is updated in Commons, I receive a notification about the change
  • I can choose to ignore the change or have it applied to the content in my course
