Hi @Bobby2 and @rmanalastas 

Yes, these are both instances of Canvas related to Free for Teacher, the version of Canvas anyone in the world can use for free.  When filling in the form to request access to FFT, if you choose the option for K12 you are routed to k12.instructure.com and if you choose anything besides K12 you are routed to canvas.instructure.com.  If you happen to have enrollments in both, you should see all your courses listed on your dashboard no matter which instance you are logged into.

Hi @rmanalastas this is curious. They seem to go to different places but I'm assuming they are to do the same thing.

Free for Teacher grew too big to fit into one instance of Canvas. 🙂

What if I want to change to canvas.instructure.com?

Hello @dans8 

If you fill out the form and specify higher education I believe you will be directed to canvas.instructure.com.  As far as I know there is not a pathway for moving courses or enrollments from the one domain to the other.
