CanvasLive

CanvasLIVE is your virtual faculty/staff lounge.
CanvasLIVE is where community members host and/or participate in different live events. Come deepen your friendships and enjoy a collegiate chat. Or, troubleshoot Canvas issues and drop some edu-tech knowledge. Whatever you decide, take time out of your week to enjoy face-to-face connections with your Canvas peers, virtually.
