Release Notes (2020-05-16) Collaborative Chat

Learner II
0 5 208

Description

With each announcement in Release Notes, we test and question the changes. We also determine whether or not teachers need to be trained on updates. Since so many people do this already (many times on their own), why not share your notes and join a conversation? We'll work asynchronously and synchronously in a chatroom!

 

Agenda

We'll take a detailed look at all of the updates in the Canvas Release Notes (2020-05-16) and the Ready Release FeaturesWe'll share our excitement, discuss our concerns, and come up with suggestions to post back to the Community.

  • What excites you about the changes?
  • What doesn't work exactly like described in the Release Notes?
  • What do you wish was different? Are there any new feature ideas that could be shared with others?
  • How do you plan to roll-out some of the updates to your staff or students?

 

On Wednesday, May 6th, let's meet synchronously for 45-minutes at 9:30am MDT. (We usually meet approximately 10 days after the publication of the Release Notes.) If a Community Member from Europe or Australia would like to "host" another session also, let Kristin know! If you can make the synchronous chat, awesome! The more the merrier, but don't feel you are required to attend a synchronous chat in order to participate in the chat!

Additional Resources

  • Participants will need to sign up for a free Fleep account. It's easy to sign in using a Google or Microsoft email address. The link to this event's chat will be posted shortly after the publication of the Release Notes.
  •  All other documents will be linked in a comment at the conclusion of the synchronous chat.

Hi! Due to an adjustment in my teaching schedule, I needed to move our chat from Thursday, May 7th to Wednesday, May 6th. Thank you!

Whoa! There's a lot to talk about, especially when you look at the Ready Release Features‌. It'll be great to connect.
