The Canvas Community is a place where Canvas users from all over the world gather to ask and answer questions, share experiences, and discuss ways to improve Canvas. Some areas are dedicated to groups of people based on interests, and there is a group space set aside for California's community colleges. It is also possible for individual users to have blogs, and you can find Greg's answers to new Canvas questions at Greg's Canvas Blog.

Included in the course for novice online learners is the SmarterMeasure self-assessment tool.
