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:)

Thanks so much!

Hey  @kmeeusen ​, I got this one.

mwcanvas​Welcome to Canvas and to the community!  Don't forget to flesh out your community profile!

Thanks,  @scottdennis ​!

I have a question about a feature on the Canvahacks Demo course home page, specifically, I'm being urged to choose between Chrome, Firefox, or Opera to use, but I have a Mac. Is it accessible via Safari without an app?

Hi MMW: is a third party application that can be embedded within Canvas. So you can learn about which platforms Appear.In supports at their own website: – one click video conversations. Specifically you can learn which devices are supported at this FAQ found on their website: Who can use Which devices are supported? - Frequently Asked Questions

From a quick view, it appears that the only supported browsers are Chrome, Firefox, Opera and Vivaldi. Because Firefox can be downloaded and used quite well on a MAC, I would suggest using Firefox. Same with Chrome. and I am not a user of the other two.

I hope this helps,
