Starts at 12:30 PM · Ends at 1:15 PM, MST (America/Denver)




With each Beta Release Notes, we test and question the changes. We also determine whether or not teachers need to be trained on updates. Since so many people do this already (many times on their own), why not share your notes and join a conversation? We'll work asynchronously and synchronously in the Canvas Chatrooms!



We'll take a detailed look at all of the updates in the 2017-05-22 Beta Release Notes. With each update, we'll share our excitement, discuss our concerns, and come up with suggestions to post back to the Community.

  • What excites you about the changes?
  • What doesn't work exactly like described in the Release Notes?
  • What do you wish was different? Are there any new feature ideas that could be shared with others?
  • How do you plan to roll-out some of the updates to your staff or students?


From the point of publication on Monday, May 22nd through Thursday, May 25th, the chatroom will be open and on-going. On Wednesday, May 24th, let's meet synchronously for 45-minutes at 12:30pm MST (if a Community Member from Europe or Australia would like to "host" another session also, let Kristin know!) If you can make the synchronous chat, awesome! The more the merrier, but don't feel you are required to attend a synchronous chat in order to participate in the New Features & Updates Forum!
