Play Hidden Games in Canvas

Community Contributor

Did you know there are hidden games inside of Canvas?

Taking a quick break from teaching and learning in Canvas can be a nice stress relief and an opportunity for a little bit of harmless fun in your day.

Just make sure your “quick break” doesn’t consume your entire afternoon! 😉

Open any Canvas course. In the web address bar at the top, type any random characters to the end of the URL and press Enter on your keyboard.
