Once again we were stunned by another kumbayawesome InstructureCon! Fortunately the great sessions, ideas, and connections we made, can live on within our Canvas Community and in the InstructureCon 2016 community space! Remember that you can keep the conversation alive, around each breakout session, by adding comments! This is a great way to connect with the presenters and share thoughts/ideas with other participants.
Please be sure to take that survey that our marketing team sends out, so we can make instcon even better next year. That quantitative feedback is invaluable.
In addition we wanted to have an open discussion where you all can publicly share your qualitative thoughts and feedback about InstructureCon 2016!
Here's some things you might want to talk about: the sessions, the keynotes, the activities, the online schedule, the app, the booths, the venue, opportunities to connect, ideas for the Community Team to improve community interaction and engagement.
Thanks for your help Canvas Community... We ❤️ you!
Onward and upward!
PS... Don't forget to add all those kumbayawesome photos you took, to the Camp Canvas Photo Gallery...

Coming from someone who wasn't able to attend the conference in person, in the past, I have enjoyed tuning in live for some of the keynote presentations that were streamed. If they were provided this year, I could not find them. It was nice to be a part of the conference in the past while it was going on even when I wasn't actually there.
I even email one person a couple of months prior to the conference asking more about what would be covered (well, it was actually a preconference workshop, so I had to try to justify the cost). I didn't hear back. If extended descriptions were part of the session evaluation/selection process then I think that would benefit everyone.
I think my issue is that I lived many years in Chicago, after living in paradisaical Hawaii. I endured so many harsh winters, including the apocalyptic blizzard of 2011. I embrace the crazy summers here being grateful that I don't have to deal with winters.
I actually slept with the windows on every night and slept like a baby! Arriving back home with 110+ heat index at 7pm at night was not amusing.
Never thought Delaware got "that" hot, but it seems hot everywhere now! I'm longing for those cool nights again.
