Commons is a new way for educators to collaborate, share, and find the best educational resources available within Canvas. On Commons, you’ll be able to share Courses, Assessments, and Activities created in Canvas with other educators as well as find and import other learning resources directly into your own Canvas courses.
Canvas Commons can be found inside Canvas. Begin by logging in to Canvas.
Using existing Canvas Commons resources in your Canvas course
Sharing your own resources to Canvas Commons
Important! Canvas Commons resources become standard Canvas content in your course. You do not need to include a separate syllabus statement.
Using Canvas Commons resources in your Canvas course
When your instructor uses resources from Canvas Commons, they will appear as regular content in your Canvas course.
Interested in discovering new ways to use Canvas in your teaching? Or, want to learn best practices? Attend a CanvasLive session led by faculty/staff.
Commons uses your Canvas account and does not require a separate sign-on. There is no associated fee for ISU faculty or students to use Canvas Commons.
