I don't seem to be able to attach a document, but when we were first migrating 6 years ago, we shared out our "24 Reasons to Love Canvas."
Below is the text of that document............
24 Reasons to Love Canvas
Assignments: create assignment from within modules, and have them populate to the Calendar, Assignments area, and syllabus automatically.
I hope this is helpful,
One word: EMBEDDING.
See snufer's InstructureCon presentation:
And I am a big fan of embedding Twitter in Canvas:
I know this can't be the exact list you used when migrating: there was no draft state in 2012!
(also, check 16 and 22: courses sizes so unlimited, we have to list them twice!)
Yes to Twitter embedding! I actually saw laurakgibbs Canvas Live event on Twitter widgets (like two? years ago), whereupon I tweeted about it (possibly with a screenshot of my success and a caption of "suck it, Luddites!"...but possibly not...)
I've since used the same strategy to get other kinds of widgets to embed into Canvas--Box has a file submission widget that's kind of cool to embed.
Yay for Twitter @tom_gibbons !!! ... and I don't know if you were using hashtag-based widgets: Twitter discontinued those, but now with Hawksey's TAGS, there is a do-able replacement for a more-or-less live Twitter hashtag widget in Canvas; I set one up for #FolkloreThursday:
And I'm not a 365 user, but my school IS a Microsoft school, so now you have made me curious if anybody is doing O365 stuff with Canvas at my school. I am bookmarking that CanvasDoc to share: THANK YOU! 🙂
Some of them are so simple, but here's a little one that I like. Canvas rich editor recognizes links. So, instead of typing out the text you want to use for the link, clicking on the 'link' button, clicking on the right box, and then copying/pasting the link into it, just select that text and hit paste. Canvas will automatically make the text the link for you. If you want more control over your link (such as forcing it to open in a new window), using CTRL-K, rather than hitting the link button in the editor, will give you advanced features.
