Canvas: Public Courses (Open Online for Anyone to View)

Canvas has the capability to create an “open” course. An “open” course is available for anyone online to view (just like a website). Once a course is “open,” the URL for that course can be sent out and viewed by anyone (regardless of if they have a log-in to Canvas). Canvas has curated some excellent “open” courses for the Canvas community to view.

Feel free to browse these offerings to get ideas of how to use Canvas.
