Thanks, Kristin Lundstrum & Biray Seitz! I had to listen while in transit, so I wasn't able to actively participate during this live event (but grateful to review the session here this morning).
True confession: I didn't even realize that non-Canvas Admin users could also access beta (or test) Canvas environments! (Doh!) I thought it was only Admins (like me). That was an eye-opener in itself. Letting teachers in on beta access might be useful to our more adventurous users. (And the test environment might be of use to more cautious teachers!)
(I wasn't able to chat during the presentation)A question was asked during the presentation about the different instances (production, test, and beta) and how to let everyone know where they are because confusion can happen. I wanted to share what we have done with some success. We brand each instance differently. Of course, production is all business and doesn't change but we get a little crazy with colors and pictures in beta every Monday. It helps us, admins, know which instance we are currently displaying and working.
