Hi folks, it looks like Scott the Magnificent has already created us a CanvasHacks public classroom to play in, and enrolled us as teachers.

Any thoughts on structure? I have a similar course that is mostly complete that I am preparing for my faculty that I could upload to provide a bit of structure. It is intended for non-coders, and has the following module structure:

  • About HTML and the HTML Editor - DO NOT FEAR THE CODE!
  • Beginning Users
  • Intermediate users
  • Advanced users
  • Sharing (sharing has a discussion and links to external resoursces

However, I am not a pushy sort, so whatever anybody else wants, I am more than happy to go along with. I can always upload stuff a piece at a time and fit it where I can.

My "lessons" are all one page, and include:

  • A brief description
  • The code snippet
  • Anatomy of the code snippet where I identify those components that are easy to modify by novices like myself
  • Instructions for use
  • Troubleshooting, and
  • Sometimes some obvious variations based on changes to parts of the code (colors, sizes, positions etc. - the minor stuff)

Let me know what your think!

Oh yah, and I also have a hokey Home page, because that's just the kind of guy I am:)

Shoot me your email address.

Do you want teacher access - if you are going to be contributing content?

Or student access - you'll be grabbing content to try at your own school?

Mr. Meeusen,

I would love to be added to the course as well!

Is it possible to be add to this course I would with K12 Teachers and I am looking for resources that I could use that helps to explain how they can use the HTML Code inside of Canvas?


Ryan, you found it just in time!

Great group of folks who love sharing!

I just stumbled upon this area of Canvas and I am regretting not finding it earlier.


Shoot me your email address in a private message so that I can invite you into the course.


It is, I am thinking, on the Canvas Network - Scott made it for us.

I will send you an invite.

Ok I'll put on the dunce cap.  Where is(how do I get to) the Canvas Hacks Classrooms.


It is up there, even though unfinished. I will go through it today, and unpublish any incomplete pages while I am still working on them.

I hope to run into some of you folks at the InstCon InstructureCon next week, seems like a great group to network with.
