Hi folks, it looks like Scott the Magnificent has already created us a CanvasHacks public classroom to play in, and enrolled us as teachers.

Any thoughts on structure? I have a similar course that is mostly complete that I am preparing for my faculty that I could upload to provide a bit of structure. It is intended for non-coders, and has the following module structure:

  • About HTML and the HTML Editor - DO NOT FEAR THE CODE!
  • Beginning Users
  • Intermediate users
  • Advanced users
  • Sharing (sharing has a discussion and links to external resoursces

However, I am not a pushy sort, so whatever anybody else wants, I am more than happy to go along with. I can always upload stuff a piece at a time and fit it where I can.

My "lessons" are all one page, and include:

  • A brief description
  • The code snippet
  • Anatomy of the code snippet where I identify those components that are easy to modify by novices like myself
  • Instructions for use
  • Troubleshooting, and
  • Sometimes some obvious variations based on changes to parts of the code (colors, sizes, positions etc. - the minor stuff)

Let me know what your think!

Oh yah, and I also have a hokey Home page, because that's just the kind of guy I am:)

That happened to me, too. I ended up creating a new account for the site (same email address as my school one) because that's what I thought it wanted, and now I'm getting sales calls at home! Eek!

In the past when I've been invited to something and it asks me to create an account it recognizes from my email that I've already got an account and it all works. Not sure what went wrong here.

You need to go to the web site and login there. 

I believe you will have to create a new account if what you have for a login does not work.

Note: I put this in such large bold font so as to catch the eyes of other people with the same problem. Ideally this information should be in the top most message( @kmeeusen  - can you edit your message?) .

I put a reply here to get the following information up near the top for new people accessing this ever growing thread:

To get to the CanvasHacks classroom, you need to go to the web site and login there. 

To be added to the classroom, we need an email address - you can use the same one you have for your regular Canvas account.

I believe you will have to create a new account if what you have for a login does not work.


Thank you,  @bowmanr ​.  I was able to access the course.
