How do I rank up in the Instructure Community?

Find your school's Canvas URL

To find your school or institution's Canvas URL, begin typing the name of your school/institution. Results will appear after you type at least 3 characters. For best results be as specific as possible. If you can't find your school, try using any part of your school's name or searching for your school district or state. You may also need to search for the school using the acronym or full name, for example "USU" and "Utah State University".

How do I rank up in the Instructure Community?

Moving up to a new rank in the Instructure Community requires members to meet certain requirements and engage and participate in the Community in specific ways. Increasing your Community rank opens up more opportunities to engage and participate in the Community, shows other members that you engage often and are knowledgeable about Instructure products, and may allow you access to specific features not available to other Community members. Rank names display beneath a user's username in most areas of the Instructure Community. Ranks and permissions are subject to change.

This helps keep the community free from spam content and ensures a safe and productive environment for all members.
