If you used an Organization in Blackboard, you may be interested in a creating a Program Community in Canvas.
What is a Program Community?
A Program Community is a sub-account that is created in Canvas for a program team. Within your Program Community, you can assign Community Admins. These admins will have access to creating new courses within the Program Community, manually enrolling faculty and/or students, and maintaining their program’s sub-account.
Why would I use a Program Community?
Within your Program Community, multiple courses can be created, and each will have separate enrolment. You may wish to create a course that is a Faculty Community Hub. Another option is to have a Final Year – Community Hub for your students in the last year of their program, where you can share job posting information, industry events, or other relevant resources.
A common use case is to use a Placement Hub course for students going on placement. Students may need access to documents or may be required to submit documentation before starting their placement. Creating a Placement Hub course within your Program Community is an effective way to share necessary information and forms, have students complete required training, and track documentation all in one course.
