We've had some interest from our faculty to create discussion and collaboration opportunities for students in their larger department in our college. These students are not necessarily in the same courses, and so we don't want to lock down the activities to a specific course.
Anyone have tips or suggestions on how to best accommodate this? Are there any Canvas site wide engagement options that I'm not aware of? Is creating a special course for this and enrolling the students the only option? I'm hesitant to use a third party tool as that would require students to use yet another login/tool, likely resulting in non compliance.
