Hello Instructure Community! 👋

As we begin 2023 with great anticipation, we want to note all of the wonderful activities that occurred in the Instructure Community throughout 2022. Community is about coming together, collaborating, and celebrating ongoing improvements in teaching and learning. You make that possible, and for that, thank you for everything you contribute to the ever-growing Community. 

If you post questions, share feedback on blogs, comment on ideas, or attend events, thank you. If you use the Community as a point of reference as you learn as an admin, instructor, student, or observer, thank you. If you use the Community resources as you support peers or others on your campus, thank you. You are all part of the reason why the Community continues to be the best way to learn about Canvas, Mastery, Elevate, and Impact.

Reflecting, Adapting, and Improving

The Community Team facilitated and implemented some pretty notable changes this year. We work diligently to create a Community space that responds to the Community members' needs and interests. Our hope is that our projects allow us to meet those goals and make it easy to support one another.

🏆 We’re happy to highlight our favorite Community-wide changes:

2023? Let’s go!

As we kick-start 2023, many schools are starting new terms. Be sure to explore the Question Forums available for each product. If you have a question about functionality or application, please ask! If you are able to contribute time and expertise, see if there are any questions you might be able to answer for a fellow community member. 🌟

If you haven’t already done so, you’re encouraged to subscribe to the Instructure Weekly Highlights Blog. You’ll then automatically receive notifications about new editions, and it’ll be simpler than ever to keep track of all of the incredible things happening around the Community!

We’re excited to see where this year takes us, and we look forward to working with each of you. (Perhaps our paths will even cross at Instructurecon in Denver!) Again, we can’t thank you enough for being part of this wonderful Community, and we couldn’t accomplish what we do without your involvement.  🎉

We can’t wait to see what we accomplish in 2023 - TOGETHER.
