Add In-Line File Preview to ePortfolios

Anne Thiers in Canvas Studio 1 week ago

I would like for there to be a way for users to view the uploaded files in ePortfolio pages with the in-line file preview option rather than having to download the file.    In our county, students create ePortfolios for their Senior Capstone Project.  These portfolios are viewed by students, teachers, and community judges.  Each portfolio has a …Read More

Is there really no way to apply a style sheet to a specific course?

Kevin Wright in Instructional Designers 3 days ago

I’ve done some research on here and I’ve found some references to inline styling. But I can’t find anything that suggests that a CSS can be applied only at a specific course level.    For example, we have two courses and want two different style guidelines for both. Say in Course B we want headers 2 through 5 to be bold/italic/centered/size 14 …Read More

Jetsons Meet the Flintstones!

Jonathan Yoder in Find Answers 2 days ago

I am dying to see how courses are being “leveraged” inside of Canvas!  Aside from Importing Files from Canvas Commons at random, is there a wiki or doc with good examples by discipline or in a HS environment? I’m looking for something I can share with my non tech savvy colleagues of all departments as we begin our journey with Canvas this …Read More


Danny Childers in Gamification 1 hour ago

Since I wish I had access to something like this when I started Gameifying my class, I thought I’d map out what I’m doing in my World Lit class for anyone who is interested in seeing how Gameification can work and the challenges I overcame incorporating it into Canvas.  I have very little coding experience (I wish I had more), so all of this was …Read More

Find Someone

Looking for someone? There are many ways to find them:

  • Try a search. You can enter someone’s name right in the search box in the user bar. You can also search for an expertise and Canvas Community will find any colleagues matching that skill.
  • Don’t worry if you don’t find any results matching a person. All content in Canvas Community is written by people so sometimes the best way to find someone is to find something they wrote and link up with them that way.
  • Try browsing for people. Canvas Community has a powerful interface to browse and discover people you work with. Just click “People”. If you’re looking for Joe in Marketing you can quickly drill down to view all people in Marketing with names beginning with “J”. By default you’ll see people you’re following, but you can click All to browse the entire community.
  • Try filtering by tags. Tags unify content and people. Often, you might want to find someone based on a keyword. The tags interface is a great way to jump in and find people.
