This guide shares information about Geneseo resources for faculty located in the Canvas Commons. You can use Commons to search for and import content into your Canvas courses. You can also share resources to Commons from your Canvas courses.

Before You Start

  • This Canvas Guide has details on how to search the Canvas Commons: How Do I Use the Commons?
  • The default search for our faculty restricts results to Geneseo Resources. To search the broader Commons community, you can remove that restriction.

Resource Links

The resource links in the table below will only resolve properly if you copy and paste them in your browser URL bar after you log into Canvas.
