When I was first learning how to use Canvas I discovered Collaborations. Talk about excited! So keen was I to share the joy that I wrote Collaborations – Changed my world!
I'm fortunate in my position to travel around to schools to share the magic of Canvas and at any opportunity I extol the virtues of Collaborations. BUT I've discovered a wee blip in getting started with this cool tool. It's tricky (very frustrating) for first time users. After way too many error alerts we have come to the conclusion that:
Before you make your first collaboration you MUST sign in to Office365.
Keep it open in another tab.
Then create your Collaboration.
It should be smooth sailing from there.
And the wonderful @jivedocs_unfede have created this guide to get you started too.
