That's Canvas and ambassador smashed together to form a word that maybe shouldn't, but does, exist.
Like we said previously, a Canvassador is a Canvas ambassador. They are leaders, innovators, forward-thinkers, and tech enthusiasts who are committed to making education better through technology. Sure, they love Canvas, but more importantly, Canvassadors are passionate about education and want to share their experiences and expertise to help other educators.
And since they have such an intimate understanding of Canvas, from time-to-time, they even advise Instructure on how we can make improvements to Canvas.
Cavassadors are educators at heart and are committed to being an active part of improving education—they do a lot more than just tell other people about Canvas. Canvassadors network with peers and present compelling ideas at tradeshows and events. They write blogs, host webinars, and participate in discussion boards focused on education, technology, and innovation. They are active in social communities and are continually taking part in activities to keep education moving forward.
Victoria Getis has been actively involved with Canvas at Northwestern University since 2013. She helped to lead a successful transition to Canvas from Blackboard in 2014-2015, and has described that experience with some tips and tricks in two webinars: "Migrating your LMS Made Simple" and "Change: It's Worth It." Victoria is happy to talk to anyone interested in the evaluation process or transitioning to Canvas. She helped organize the summer 2016 CanvasCon at Northwestern University, which put her in contact with the awesome Canvas Events Team. If you’re thinking about hosting a CanvasCon, don't hesitate!
