How does distance learning work in the new canvas? In Blackboard we used tools then blackboard collaboration. Is there something similar for Canvas???
You have a lot of options for distance learning, whether through native Canvas tools or app integrations. For example, services like Padlet or Trello let you create collaborative spaces and integrate them with Canvas. Canvas has a built in Collaboration tool that lets you have your class edit documents in real time. It also has a built in Conferences tool for live web meeting sessions. Canvas has a lot of articles about both Collaborations and Conferences.
Those are all just general starting points. If you want to share some specific activities/questions, I'm sure folks here could provide suggestions on how to translate them to Canvas.
