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:)

Great Chelsie!

HI Kelly,

Thank you.  I was able to get in with the new email address that is linked to my account.  You can go ahead and remove

Thank you,



It won't work with your institutions login credentials, because this classroom is not on your institution's Canvas instance.

It should prompt you to create a Resources at Instructure account - which is where this course lives:

I hope this helps,


Hi Claudia, I just sent you an invite for a teacher enrollment.  Please let us know if you need anything else. Thanks, Scott


sorry to bother everyone, but I have had the same problem, it won't let me access with my institutional canvas account.

Could I please have a teacher or student access on

Thank you so much and sorry for the confusion.
