Hi Canvas Community!
We just activated Canvas Commons for our institution (grades 9-12). The technology department is excited to bring this to teachers, and I know we need to do some direct training before full implementation. Has anyone in K-12 had success with this? If so, please share! If you had any challenges, what were they?
I'd love to collaborate and learn from you all so I can be as prepared as possible for the announcement to our teachers and for follow-up trainings.
Hi! We are in a pilot year with just our 6th grade, transitioning from Moodle to Canvas. Therefore, everything is new to our 6th grade teachers and we are able to intro new things to them easily.
I introduced them to Canvas Commons and they were really excited about it. Their number one request, and what I think you'd need to have some kind of place for it, is that after they do a search and find a potential lesson, they can't see it. You have to import it to view the content. They don't want to import it into their course without checking it out, so we have a specific Commons Test Course where they all can import to their hearts' content.
Hi @ekeefe . Thank you for your comments.
Also there is a space dedicated for Canvas Commons in the community. Being able to preview content prior to import is one of our top requested ideas: . It's in the 'gathering information' stage which means it's on our product team's radar. At this stage, community votes and comments are valuable and insightful during discovery.
Hope that helps!
Since this question has already been marked assumed, it do not think it's possible to turn it back. However we could create a "Share your Commons Roll-Out Stories" in the Commons area and continue the discussion format there. Thoughts?
While I was not able create/post a discussion directly to Canvas Commons, I created a new general discussion. Hopefully one of you amazing Community Managers can move it where it needs to go. If not, I like the discussion aspect better than the Q&A format.
