Beta Release Notes (2017-10-16) Collaborative Chat

Created by Kristin Lundstrum Champion on Jul 29, 2017

Wednesday, October 18, 2017 at https://fleep.io/chat/mxyIqLdbTQ6Y6zykNjNalg

Starts at 1:30 PM ยท Ends at 2:15 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 a chatroom!




We'll take a detailed look at all of the updates in the Canvas Beta Release Notes (2017-10-16)! 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, October 16th through Thursday, October 19th, the chatroom will be open and on-going. On Wednesday, October 18th let's meet synchronously for 60-minutes at 1:30pm 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 chat!
