Canvas Tips and Tricks: The Commons

Most of you know about Commons. However, if you don’t, you are missing out!

Commons is a learning object repository of shared documents and resources from other teachers, schools, and districts. This will allow you and your peers to download templates into your courses, upload and download information to share with co-teachers throughout our district (and beyond!), and even import entire professional development courses for teachers to learn Canvas from a student perspective.


Check out the Canvas Community HERE for more information on Commons.  You can find Commons on the main button bar in our instance.
