Creating a Canvas Commons Module

Canvas Commons is a repository of shared materials that Canvas users can easily find and copy into an existing course. This makes it a useful vehicle for sharing pre-made learning content in Canvas. Instructions for faculty on how to pull a module into their course from Canvas Commons are located here.

Creating a Discussion in Canvas (as Instructor)

If you are added as an instructor to a course in Canvas, a powerful way to support students is to work with the faculty member to design a discussion post that can have students ask questions of you or their peers or reflect upon their research process.
