Canvas community: the possibilities are endless.

I’ve recently joined the Canvas Community as a way to get ideas and information about a system that is new here at Virginia Tech.  We recently adopted Canvas as the LMS of choice (the announcement), and now it’s up to the Instructional Designers and the IT people in the colleges to figure out how to make it work for our faculty and staff.  So it was great to see all of this information in one place:

Started working my way through the Community and it’s already paying off for me.  One of the projects that I’m working on is how to integrate Microsoft’s OneNote into Canvas as a tool for storing information, documents, etc.  And within minutes I found an important bit of information (Integrate Onenote with Class Notebook) about the integration that could have taken me hours of research to locate on my own.

I’m looking forward to using this community to learn more about Canvas, to share ideas that I develop, and to help my faculty and staff survive the transition to the new LMS.  The possibilities are endless.
