Commons is a learning object repository that enables educators to find, import, and share resources. A digital library full of educational content, Commons allows Canvas users to share learning resources with other users as well as import learning resources into a Canvas course.
To enable Commons in your Canvas instance, please contact your Customer Success Manager. To access Commons, you need to have an email address associated with your Canvas account.
Find resources by searching for a specific keyword, author, institution, or title.
Import a resource into a Canvas course. Once the import to Canvas is complete, you can start using and customizing your resource.
Share resources you create in Canvas with other Canvas users, with colleagues and groups at your institution, or with only you.
If you modify a resource (learning activity) in Canvas that was previously shared to Commons, you can share the modified resource to Commons again. The existing resource will be updated in Commons.
