NWCCD recommends using Canvas Commons to facilitate sharing your content with other instructors at NWCCD, rather than requesting that your peer be added to your Canvas course shell. 

Important Notes for Canvas Commons: 

  • Course content you share is ONLY shared within NWCCD, not outside our institution. You also have the option of sharing content to Course Commons for only yourself.
  • Course names in Commons don't have to match what is in Canvas (in other words you don't need to type the term in front of the course name unless you want to).
  • Once you have shared your course to Commons, you can email your fellow instructor and give them the name of the course you entered in Commons.

Instructions for sharing your course to the Commons can be found on the Canvas Guides site at: https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-16704-4152725301
