We've over 100 community members in the chatroom and already a full season of Twitter Chats lined up! There is chatter, chatter everywhere in CanvasLIVE! Smiley Happy

I've heard of a #CanvasChat ...

If you've never participated in a Twitter chat before, here's your chance. A "Twitter chat" is a public Twitter conversation around one unique hashtag. In CanvasLIVE (depending on who's hosting the chat), each chat might have a different hashtag​. 

This season tmercer@msddecatur.k12.in.us​ is hosting a series of Twitter chats specifically for the K12 audience with the hashtag #canvas4elem​. Don't miss the one tonight at #Canvas4Elem: Making Canvas Elementary Friendly​!

We will also continue our general #canvaschat season every other Tuesday at 4pm MST. Next week we have dlyons@instructure.com​ bringing you the best of #CanvasChat: Canvas. Mic Drop.

And later in September, drimmer@bromsgrove-school.co.uk​ is starting her Twitter Chats #k12canvaswk1: "But, I don't really like computers..."

RSVP. And get ready for a full hour of fun.

... But a Dad Chat?

Outside of Twitter, there's a whole lotta other chat happening in our chatrooms. Not only are we starting to see some interesting live conversation unfold, but members are creating different open forums or chatrooms, too!

Ryan.Seilhamer@ucf.edu​ created a channel for mobile (of course); elwalker@tusc.k12.al.us​ jumped in with "PLC for Math Teachers"; and, jbrady2@hccfl.edu​ launched "third-party tools" channel. But no one expected stuart.ryan@collaborative.education​ to create a place for "Dad Jokes" (Okay, maybe Deactivated user​ expected it).

CanvasLIVE continues to be a place for live chatter. Be it on Twitter or in a chatroom!

:smileygrin: I maintain that Deactivated user​ not only expected, but entirely encouraged it!

Really looking forward to meeting more people over on CanvasLIVE, Kudos to you biray@instructure.com​ (and the whole team) for putting together an awesome lineup of chats and a new great way to keep in contact with other Canvasers from around the world!
