I can't wait to find out more information on this. Cost, sessions, etc.

TCUG has historically been free for participants, and all signs currently point to us being able to continue that trend in 2016.

Greetings,

How do we get in contact with the Event Chairs? We have attempted to email canvasid@utlists.utexas.edu and we are recieving a message from postmaster@austin.utexas.edu saying: "The e-mail address you entered couldn't be found."

We are with Region 18 Education Service Center in Midland, Texas. We have been offering professional development in Canvas for several years and we were curious if TCUG was needing any presenters, sponsors, and/or SWAG for your Texas Canvas Users Conference.

Smiley Happy Thank you kindly in advance, look forward to seeing you in November.

Hi Nicole,

I'm sorry you're having issues with our email list.  The call for proposals is now open and we're very interested in presenters from all over the state.  You can find information and the link to our CFP at 2016 Texas Canvas Users Group​.

Thanks!

Mario

AspirEDU will be there as a sponsor!!  We'll be happy to talk about and show Dropout Detective and Instructor Insight to anyone that is interested.   @kim ​ and I are looking forward to it!

Can someone who is familiar with the area recommend a few more local lower-end hotel/motels? The ones listed in the TCUG course are booking at outrageous rates (probably because of the football game supposedly happening that weekend).

 @tdelillo , we'll be posting more options to the accommodations page that are more reasonably priced.  Thanks!

We booked at the Double Tree on the north side on I-35 for $149.  It is just 4 miles away.

Is there anything we need to know about parking around San Jacinto Hall? Just wondering about any suggestions regarding particular places to park, any expenses to plan on regarding parking, etc.

By the way, the new choices of hotels are very helpful!

 @ablackman ​, apologize for not having this information accessible on the conference website.  It will be up there soon.  The closest parking garage to San Jacinto Hall is Brazos Garage​.  Prices for garage parking can be found at Garage Daily Paid Parking Rates | Parking & Transportation Services (PTS) | The University of Texas ....  You can also look into Capital Metro, Austin's public transportation system, which has several routes that run to campus.

We just registered and excited about our trip to Austin.  I hope the attendees will stop by the Alliance Partner - AspirEDU​ table and say hello!

Trying to see if we need to book hotel rooms on Friday night. Will the event end after the keynote or will it end at 5p?

Hi, folks!  We're looking forward to seeing everyone in Austin this week.  There has been a change in the presentation schedule -- our Alliance Partner - AspirEDU​ presentation of Dropout Detective and Instructor Insight has been moved to Thursday afternoon at 3pm in the Capitol Room.  We hope to see you there!!

I'm not sure where the presentation docs will be stored, but I've had a few requests for mine so I wanted to share that URL here.

Thanks to everyone who attended this year's TCUG!  We're in the process of gathering presentation materials from our awesome presenters.  We'll be posting each presentation we receive to the Schedule Page of the conference site.
