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:)

Hi Kelley,

sorry to bother you, may I have access as well, please? My email is




Not a bother at all; and, in fact, it is done.

I would like teacher access.  I think this will answer some of my questions of things I'm trying to accomplish.

Thank you so much!

Hi,Thanks so much for creating a space like this!  I would love to have teacher access.  I'm a novice myself, but I recently got neck deep in learning to use the html editor when our instructional support team worked on developing a standard homepage for our department, and created a bunch of pages for our faculty resource portal. I customized and modified code from the Canvas style guide and from snippets shared in the community.  So, I might have something new to share!

Thank you, Kelly.  Should I be looking out for an invitation?  Or should I follow a link somewhere to find the course? I have never joined a public Canvas course before. Will I be able to log in with the Canvas credentials I use for my school and the Canvas Community, or will I need to create a separate account?  Sorry for all the newbie questions.
