Hi! When Canvas admins and other trainers with admin permissions are providing demonstrations of Canvas features (such as the Canvas Analytics Beta), it would be fantastic if Canvas could provide a "standard" ready-made demo course with demo students. My institution's Canvas support team could create a fake course with fake assignments, quizzes, and discussions as well as fake student accounts. However, creating significant/realistic "fake" participation (and grades) data over a 8-wk/16-wk period of time is incredibly cumbersome and time-consuming. Having a ready-made Canvas demo course with demo students would be very useful for demonstrating Canvas tools, video tutorials, etc.
The re-usability of such a demo course would be huge, and Canvas could ensure all the necessary activity/grade patterns were present to provide an effective demonstration course. Instead of each institution having to create their own class, we could all benefit from the Canvas-provided course!
