Welcome to the New Canvas Community!

A New Home for the Canvas Community

On April 15th, the Canvas Community moved to a new platform. We recommend visiting the new Canvas Community to familiarize yourself with its layout and features.

Here’s What’s New

In the new Canvas Community, you’ll get a great modern interface; a more powerful search than what was in the old Canvas Community; a known issues list; a personalized profile page; and a commitment from Canvas to be much more active, engaged, and transparent in their interactions with you.

The new Canvas Community is an excellent place to share ideas with other Canvas users.

How to Log into the New Canvas Community

The new community login will behave just like the current community. To start engaging in the new community, log into Canvas, go to the new Canvas Community, click on login in the upper right corner of the page, and then select canvas.upenn.edu from the “Which Canvas account would you like to use to log in to Canvas Community?” drop-down menu.

Here’s What Will Happen to Your Old Community Contributions

Canvas is curating content to bring over the most timely and relevant contributions. They’ll summarize content and make attributions to the original author. Canvas is constantly changing and many of the existing comments are historically interesting but not as actionable today.
