Each step in the Community’s 8-year history needed different care and different supports to thrive, the mission and one key element were constant as membership and resource counts climbed. YOU. The people who come to the Community to advance their understanding of a product or connect with others keep returning, keep sharing, and keep learning. You make the Community flourish.

Starting June 1, and running for the next six months, we’re going to recognize Community members who help others by sharing solutions in the Question Forums. With the goal of enablement, you share resources and best practices, you are really making it possible for everyone to maximize their use of Instructure products.

As part of this very important week, I want to celebrate YOU. Each and everyone one of you is guiding lives, driving positive social change, and shaping our world’s future through the incredibly important work you do. I love listening to your stories, finding ways to help you have the space to do the rewording work you do, and raising awareness of the challenges you face day to day. I learn and grow from what you share, ultimately making my own teaching practice that much better. And your spirit is quite frankly, awesomely inspiring.

2021 is nearly over and we've been reflecting on all the amazing questions, ideas, replies, blog posts, events, and more that you, our wonderful Instructure Community members, have created and participated in. We want to celebrate your amazing contributions as another year comes to a close—because ultimately, that's what this community is all about: celebrating the individual contributions that come together to make a greater whole. Thank you for posting your questions, for answering questions from fellow educators, administrators, students, parents, and other faculty, and for making this the best place to learn about and get help for Canvas and the rest of Instructure's products.

When I first started using Canvas I approached the Canvas Community as a source of wisdom and much needed nourishment. Little did I know the treasure I’d discover, the friends I’d make and the things I’d learn.

For me; Community means moving from a transactional state of mind to a relational state.  By this I mean moving beyond a world view where all motivation essentially falls into two categories, which are Self Interest and Caring for Others (Self vs Others).  Instead, motivation becomes 'other-ish' meaning that you realize that you can best help yourself by helping others.

We all interpret the word COMMUNITY in different ways.  We all live in some type of community...whether in a small town, in a residential community, etc.  In these types of communities, we might be in the same part of the world, but we have different interests.  For me, it's having a sense of belonging...that you feel welcome.  Community is also sharing and talking about common interests...even in smaller group settings.

A community is a group of people whose experiences are clustered around a common theme. They can be in the same location in person or online, and each member can find a way to contribute to their shared interests.

A place where i find people with a common interest. I always seek to work with the experts. Either it is about Canvas or Dog grooming (not that i even like dogs, but if I did. You get my point..)

As I reflect on last year, I can’t help but truly think – what happened? I was attempting to reflect (like, actually reflect, reflect), and in talking with the best manager in the world,  @tdelillo , I realized – there are chunks missing from 2018. It’s all a blur; almost like I blacked out.

My 2018 consisted of a bumpy recovery from a series of setbacks in 2017. When I say “setbacks,” I’m referring to various events, some personal, some external, that taken individually wouldn’t sound like much—but the last of those external events, coming late in the year, hit me like a gut punch and set off a full-blown existential crisis. I knew I needed to reflect mightily on what had led up to that in order to address it.
