Canvas Community what a gold mine! It's so nice to know that we are lucky enough to have access to all sorts of information, tips 'n tricks, and real live people to chat to about all sorts - sharing ideas, problem solving, making connections across the world, and having a good old laugh.
Once a newbie to the Canvas Community has got their bearings they can join groups, read blogs, participate in discussions, and ask questions etc. I've only recently discovered how to access what's new in the Community. Do people know how to access the Canvas 'News'? It took me a little while to discover this gem. Gideon made an excellent point in a discussion following Questions about ePortfolios.
So here are some hastily cobbled together instructions to change your preferences to gain access to what's new in questions, discussions, blogs...
Click on your profile picture then click on 'preferences'
Then make a decision about where you want to land when you click the Canvas icon
Then when you log in to the Canvas Community you have this banner
Click the Canvas icon to access your preference. I've set mine to 'News'. It's not there to look pretty!
Enjoy all of the recent goodies.
