An essential learning tool is the custom wiki for use as a course-specific glossary or dictionary. In my experience, this kind of functionality is relevant across the university, as it allows professors and students to develop both course and field specific collections of terms, references, and links.
I am new to Canvas, and honestly I find it somewhat ridiculous that this functionality isn't built in already. I have read various forums here, and the workarounds suggested -- either by making certain pages editable by students, or by transforming a discussion into a repository of shared information and links -- are laborious, and poorly substitutes.
This is not a feature to be added; it is a problem to be solved, and quickly.
