Good Morning Fellow Canvasphiles!
To be sure, there are a myriad of helpful, exciting resources available in our Community! As a matter of fact, I "geek-out" and feel like a kid in a virtual candy-store!
Of course, this requires us to determine how we better harvest these sweet-fruits, from this cornucopia of Canvas informational delights!
To the point then:
I would like to start an ongoing conversation about the various strategies, tactics, and techniques Canvas Community Members use to sort this available information into manageable, and digestible partitions.
In advance, thank you for being willing to share--not with just me, though I need the assistance--but the entire Community your sorting strategies!
Oh! I almost forgot, if you think this discussion would provide increased value to currently un-reached members of the community would you be so kind as to share this out? Who knows? There may be other answers and considerations whereby we may further enhance our organizational skills and be of better service: to our local institutions, to Instructure, and most importantly--to all users everywhere!
Forgive me...I can feel the "geeking-out" coming on, as I anticipate your wonderful contributions!
Speaking, or writing about WONDERFUL, I hope your day would be just that!
email@example.com, greetings and welcome! My main hints/tricks are to...
1. Join some groups! They are a great way to find the niche areas that you are really interested or passionate about. Ex: Canvas Admin, Instructional Designers, HigherEd, Canvas Developers, etc...
2. Follow everything to your Inbox! For me at least it helps because I only have to check one place and I can see everything that is going on in all the groups, areas, etc that I'm interested in. This keeps the clicking around everywhere to a minimum because you only need to check one place! Yet, depending on how much you follow, you can end up with a HUGE number of things in your Inbox that you have to weed through.
Hope this helps! Kona
Thanks for initiating this great discussion, firstname.lastname@example.org! I wanted to let you know that we've moved it to the Meta Community Group which is where we discuss all-things-Community (as opposed to all-things-Canvas). If you're not yet a member of the Meta group, you can easily join by navigating to the home page for the group and selecting Join Group from the Actions dropdown at the upper right of the page.
Whew! Talk about better organization, Your to my rescue again
That always goes to show, there's always more to learn!
I will most-definitely join Meta Community Group
Appreciate you guiding me thru this!
We ran across a tiny snag, email@example.com, when trying to move this piece of content. So we "shared" it to the Meta group instead. Tip: Anyone who creates a piece of content here in the Canvas Community and then wants to broaden its exposure, as well as reach the experts in a particular area, can use the Share button at the upper right of their content to share it out to other groups to which they already belong.
Filing that Tip right now!
Thanks again Stefanie!
P.S. - I believe I misspelled your name in previous posts, and replies. Please accept my regrets. I'll go back and edit if I can, and do it right moving forward - T.S.L.
It's great to see that you have discovered this treasure trove of goodness.
As for being cunning with curating within the Community here's my $0.02 worth:
Your enthusiasm for the Canvas Community echoes mine. Great to know that others are in this lolly-shop too.
