Live, interactive demo of an escape the room course.
Escape the Room: Canvas Carnival
After playing in the course for a while, I can attest that this is a cool concept and I look forward to further exploration soon.

Thanks @mjennings ! I would be happy to add some information here as well. If anyone would like to enroll in the Escape course and check it out, they can do so at tinyurl.com/canvescape. To take a step further and take a look under the hood to see how the course was created, search the Canvas Commons for "Canvescape" and "Corris". You should be able to import the entire Escape course into one of your courses to see how things were put together. There are also two different ways to get some explanations of how things were put together. If you enroll in the course, once you escape you will have access to the last module that contains many explanations and a few other bonuses. If you import the course from the Commons, you will have access to the explanations without having to escape first.
If anyone has questions about the course, feel free to ask. And remember...this is just one way to do it. Find out what will work for your situation/classroom and go with it. I would love to hear how this works for anyone that tries it.
Good Afternoon -- Might there still be a way to access the course or other related materials? Cannot seem to locate anything in Canvas Guides / Commons - and accessing the course seems to no longer be an option. Love this idea!! THANK YOU for any guidance!
