Integrate your course blog with your Canvas course site: Canvas will be replacing Chalk in the 2017-18 academic year. If you opt-in to Canvas now, your Canvas course site and your course blog can be integrated to provide a better experience for you and the students. The integration enables one-click access-provisioning for students, and a direct link to the blog from the course site.
