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.

In her current position as a classroom technology designer, she supports K–12 campuses district-wide with the Canvas LMS and enjoys managing the Canvas teacher leader program. She’s a co-designer of the online instructor certification course built in Canvas and is approved through the Texas Virtual Schools Network and the Texas Education Agency. Carrie is a veteran teacher in the Katy Virtual School and continues to teach professional communications to high school students in the online environment via Canvas. She feels that her unique perspective as a teacher, trainer, and parent observer in Canvas gives her well-rounded experience with the LMS and allows her to be an empathetic support system to others in those roles.
"Canvas has become the foundation for my career. I was hooked from my first Canvas course! I love that I can learn something new in Canvas every single day. I love the extension of the classroom that I can provide to the students in our district by using this amazing tool. Most of all, I love when I share Canvas with colleagues and they get as excited as I am about what it can do for learning. From the elementary and secondary classrooms to professional development for our staff, Canvas adds excitement, energy, and next-level benefits for our users."
