  • Canvas Community ( - In the community Canvas has a 'listserv-like' forum called 'Ask a Question' that is moderated by Canvas experts they endearingly call 'Coaches.' All of the community is invited to participate. It is open for subscription so you can keep a tab on the discussions that are happening in the community. In addition to the 'Ask a Question' forum, Canas has a 'Water Cooler' forum where the community can discuss whatever they'd like that is possibly off-topic.
  • Canvas Guides ( - Canvas Guides is our new source for all the latest documentation on Canvas and replaces the wiki. You'll find guides for students, teachers and admins, along with some other miscellaneous information.
