Blogging is a great format for sharing insights and highlighting expertise with regards to Canvas, ed-tech and the scholarship of teaching and learning. In the Canvas Community, members can contribute to two types of blogs: group blogs and/or their own user blog*.
Knowing the tips and tricks related to blogging can be helpful in ensuring people read your posts and follow your regular updates.
* NOTE: Members who achieve 'Educator' status and have authored 10+ blog posts in various group blogs receive their own user blogs.
Participants who attend the session will learn about...
- Steps to author a blog post in the Canvas Community
- Considerations in style, tone, and perspective
- Suggested topics or themes
- Examples of successful blog posts in the community
- How do I create a blog post in the Community?

Community ManagerI was born and raised in New York City, where I enjoyed a long and successful career in investment banking and stock brokerage. Wanting a change in life direction, I moved to Southwest Florida to pursue my fundamental interests in education and health care. I subsequently earned my master’s degree in the humanities from Cal State University. Between 2008-2015 I taught online courses, first in philosophy and then in the humanities, at Florida SouthWestern State College. I currently work for Instructure as a Canvas Coach and Trainer (see: http://cred.ly/c/62871). In my spare time, I like to travel (that's me scaling the steps of the temple at Dzibanche in December 2014) and ride my bike (here in Southwest Florida, Shark Valley is one of my favorite spots). Also, since early 2014, I've teaching myself to speak and read Spanish, a skill that I put to good use during a month-long trip to Costa Rica in May 2014.
