Jetsons Meet the Flintstones!

I am dying to see how courses are being "leveraged" inside of Canvas! Smiley Happy 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

Hi  @jayoder ‌

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?

Is this any help? https://community.canvaslms.com/groups/strategies/blog/2018/01/27/horse-before-the-cart-purpose-firs... 

 @jayoder 

There used to be some sample courses based on layout and purpose available in the old Community, but with the advent of Commons they have gone away. They were quite handy.

And check out the one I forgot, but my friend  @Bobby2 ‌ just shared.

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!
