I'm headed to CanvasCon and wondered if there were any Sydney schools using Canvas heavily that would welcome a visit Monday 12 August? My school is an all-girls Catholic school (7-12) in Cairns in the Mercy tradition and I would love to see similar; though, it would also be good to see a variety of schools.

 @cburcin his would be fabulous. I'd love to also. But you get first dibs because you put it out there!

Thanks very much.  Hopefully, by posting here we can share the love and find enough schools to accommodate all of the people like us who are interested in visiting schools!

Hi All, this year, 4 of us from Horizon Christian School are heading over for Canvascon. YAY! However, we are flying straight out after the conference and will miss the networking session at the end of the day. Last year someone graciously organised pre-conference drinks, the evening before, at the Pump-house. This was really valuable for us to make connections, as a new kids on the block.

Would there be anyone, this year, who is interested in catching up for pre-conference drinks this year? The Pump-house was central and was a great venue.

Anyone keen?

Has anyone else had trouble paying their CanvasCon Sydney 2019 ticket via an invoice?

The payment instructions on the invoice do not show any BPAY or Bank deposit details (with a BSB).

I've been calling the Sydney office on 1300 956 763 with no answer.
I've sent a message via Contact the organiser on the CanvasCon Sydney webpage with no reply as yet.
I've also sent an email to support@instructure.com from Instructure website with no reply as yet.

Hi Brittaney

Turned out I was unable to pay easily via invoice, so we ended up cancelling and re-registering.

Not long now!

Hi Everyone,

I had a great time at this event a couple of weeks back.
On the day I had the impression that the key notes and presentations would be made available online later, but haven't been able to find them anywhere. 

Is anyone able to tell me if / when we can see these presentations? 
Or did I just imagine this?

David

Hi David!

You're right. We will be making the content available. 

We're just working out how best to do that right now and hoping to have them online very soon!

Hi  @e_george1  think it takes a wee while to curate them all. From memory last year it took a couple of months. There were a lot. 

In the meantime here's a self enrol link to  @craig_nicholls ‌ and my presentation if that's any help Enroll in CanvasCon2019 - Using Canvas in Primary Schools

Hi Elizabeth,

The slides are now available here: CanvasCon  

Thanks so much for your patience. As Bobby mentioned above, it did take us a bit to curate and upload them.

Apologies if it held you up in any way! We hope you find them really useful Smiley Happy 

Also- tip: you can filter by the stream the session was in.

Here is the agenda if you want to jog your memory on any particular session name or details: Agenda | CanvasCon Sydney 19

Hi Niamh,

Thank you for posting these, much appreciated. Unfortunately I can't locate the slides of the presentation that  @jayde_colquhoun ‌ and I gave at CanvasCon. Our updated slides were sent to Sarah on 16 August. Could you let me know if these need to be sent through again?

Hi Marcus- sorry for the delay here! 

Thanks for asking!

Here is the presentation link: https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-17732-jayde-colquhoun-and-marcus-de-rijk-rmit-royal-melbour... 

Is there anything else I can help with?
