Create a Slack workspace for your course from Canvas
Thanks to a partnership between Stanford University IT and Learning Technologies and Spaces, instructors in most schools can create private Slack workspaces for their courses directly through the Canvas tool.
Stanford Slack isn’t only for connecting with colleagues. Increasingly, instructors are finding value in using Slack to work with students.
Now, thanks to a partnership between Stanford University IT (UIT) and Learning Technologies and Spaces (LTS), instructors, teaching assistants, and course administrators in most schools can create private Slack workspaces directly through the Canvas tool.
As a bonus, workspaces initiated via Canvas feature CourseBot. This new Slack app helps members of Stanford’s teaching community set up the default channels students will automatically be added to when they join the workspace.
