Web Conferencing in Canvas Using Conferences

Conferences allow faculty to have synchronous online meetings within a Canvas course. Instructors can invite all course members or just a select few to a conference. Students can also create conferences to meet with group members for online collaboration. Participants can interact with audio, video, and a shared whiteboard. Presenters can share their desktop with the group.
