When and why did you join the Community?





It was a dark and stormy night.....







Actually, it was at EduCause last fall.  I was hanging out with the wonderful people at the Instructure booth and my Instacon friend Carrie S. People were stopping by, and I was helping answer some of their questions.  Carrie was impressed and told me that she learned a lot about Canvas by going on the forums and finding questions she didn't know the answers to and try to figure them out.  I thought this was a great way to learn more, so I started doing that.  Quickly, I was noticed by Jordan, who sent me a wonderful Star Trek themed t-shirt. Just don't know why it was red, as we all know what happens to red shirts in Star Trek!



Anyway, I continued and was soon contacted by Scott D. to see if I would be interested in becoming a coach. I thought long and hard about it, and 1.045 seconds later said yes.



What did you gain from the Community?

My favorite type of question to answer is still the ones I don't know the answer to off the top of my head.  I love learning all the nooks and crannies of the LMS, and this is still the best way to do it!


And of course, if I can answer with an appropriate meme, that'll be thrown in as well Smiley Happy
