A Canvas Collaboration site is similar to a Sakai Project site. It is a Canvas site not tied to a DukeHub/DKUHub course or roster, meaning that users need to be added and removed from the site manually. It has the same roles and tools available as Canvas Course sites.

Canvas Collaboration sites can be requested for the following use cases:

  • Personal sandbox for exploring Canvas
  • Academic resource site used by one or more formal courses (e.g., sharing resources with students in a multi-year program, etc.)
  • Short-term team or working group activity (e.g., planning for a student or staff conference event, short-term planning activity, etc.)
  • Ongoing team or working group activity (e.g., as a work space for a standing committee, student group, etc.)
  • Public space to share materials and engage participants beyond a specific group
