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.

Here are just a tiny fraction of the amazing things we've seen in the Community this year:

And of course, so much more that we couldn't fit into one graphic!

We have over 1.4 million members in the Community, looking for answers and helping others with their questions.

Check out our question forums for our family of products. If you have a question, don't hesitate to ask! And of course, pay it forward and see if there are any questions you might be able to answer for a fellow community member.

We've published about 100 release and deploy notes for our platform of products. All of our release notes resources have received over 600,000 page views this year and our release notes RSS feeds were viewed more than 1.8 million times (P.S., if you haven't subscribed to the Canvas release notes yet, you should do that here. Click the 3-dot icon at the top of the page, and click Subscribe to RSS Feed).

In addition to all the amazing content created in the Instructure Community, we've also added a ton of new products to the Instructure family, including the family of Certica products (Academic Benchmarks, Certify, enCASE, Navigate Item Bank, and Videri), Impact (formerly EesySoft) and Elevate Data Sync (formerly Kimono). We've welcomed their users and communities into our family and brought in some great expertise and resources along with these amazing tools.

In the Community itself, we've been working hard to make it easier to find what you're looking for with better structural organization, a new and improved top level navigation menu, improved search functionality, and improved designs and filters for community spaces like Idea Conversations.

And, of course, we couldn't do this without you, our amazing community members! You gave out the kudos to your fellow community members, here are a few of our most kudoed members this year:

Keep up the amazing work! Thank you for adding value to the Instructure Community, and thank you for continuing to make this one of the best online communities out there.

Instead of taking the traditional approach of ‘badging for bragging rights’ (where you get a badge for doing something ‘right’ and glowing about it to all your peeps), we are flipping the model and “bragging by badging right” (glowing about you to all our peeps for the right reasons)! We are repurposing badges as a way to give out digital compliments to our awesome members.

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.

Because I am not a person that can work alone in a silo, I seek out the power of community in all that I do.

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.

I've been fortunate to belong to a few communities. Some more effective and healthy than others.

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..)

So here I am in my tutoring lab, and our Dean in charge of Things Tech and Learning Support comes in ...  with none other than  @kona  with a swag bag.  I've got students happily consuming rainbow lollipops and yes, a sense that the Canvas Community cares.
