• Join the Canvas Community

The Canvas Community provides Canvas users with access to a repository of training materials aimed at helping users get the most out of the community. Users can ask questions, share answers, browse tips & tricks, review common FAQs, and learn from with community tutorials with step-by-step instructions.

The Find Answers section  of the Canvas community is where you will find a wealth of Canvas user guides and other resources to help you use Canvas . There are general Canvas Instructor guides as well as guides specifically for using the mobile apps  and the Canvas Commons. Additionally, if you can’t find the answer in the guides, you can ask a question in the Canvas Community and have it answered within 24 to 72 hours by other Canvas users. Review the video tutorials and guides below that are specifically designed to help you use the Canvas Community.

The “Learning Canvas 2016” course is organised into chapters and divided into short individual videos, so you can learn a new skill from start to finish or find a quick answer.
