I am dying to see how courses are being "leveraged" inside of Canvas! Aside from Importing Files from Canvas Commons at random, is there a wiki or doc with good examples by discipline or in a HS environment? I'm looking for something I can share with my non tech savvy colleagues of all departments as we begin our journey with Canvas this Spring/Summer! please help
Just some resources you might find helpful..............
I would not give up on Commons. Just a quick search for Course examples returned many good things.
Thanks, I created a sandbox course for importing things from Canvas! We just got access on Monday...I've probably logged more hours than any normal/sane person should...There is just so much to see!!! Thanks for directing me!
Hey, great that you have found the Canvas Community Jonathan. All sorts of goodies and support here.
I have to echo @kmeeusen with the places he has directed you to. They are fabulous.
There does seem to be a place for having examples of Canvas possibilities for very new users to have a look at. Even just screen shots of home pages?
I keep all my courses and resources open in hopes they can be useful to others! Here is a list of links:
My Myth-Folklore Class
My Indian Epics Class
Growth Mindset Resources
H.E.A.R.T. Resources for Student Success
Canvas Widgets (anyone can use them!)
P.A.I.N.T. Canvas workshop
Thank you all so much. laurakgibbs, @kmeeusen and @Bobby2 I have started to compile all of this information to help my colleagues as they will be introduced officially to Canvas tomorrow. I feel like there is a blog entry in my future outlining how I helped my fellow Flintstones meet the Jetsons...not in the "fear that Robots are taking over the world" kind of way that most of them default to in their gossip/nay saying, but in more of the way that I as a child saw hope and possibility in my favorite Hanna Barbera cartoons...using a Growth Mindset! So thank you and please keep the suggestions coming! #Thankful4Canvas
I wanted to showcase the demo "course" that I developed from the original discussion I started almost 72 hours ago! 11 hours of webinars and all of your help on Canvas Guides led me here...Its still a rough draft, but I had a great response from my colleagues during our professional development today...I had a full house for 2.5 hours just getting excited about all the potential with Canvas!
Thanks again for all your support!
