What are the differences between CN Post and the full version of the CN?

CN Post is a simplified version of CourseNetworking, the academic social networking service also known as the CN (available at thecn.com). At Indiana University, CN Post appears in all Canvas course sites by default. CN Post keeps most of the social and engagement features that a typical CN course site has, such as Posts, Polls, Events, hashtags, Global Posts, Anar seeds, and engagement analytics, but eliminates learning management features that Canvas already offers, such as Tasks, Syllabus, GradeBook, DropBox, and Quizzes.

Within the CN Post tool in Canvas, you can visit the full CN. From the left menu of CN Post, click Go to Full CN.

Instructors can set the full version of a CN course as the default display page for a Canvas site. To do so:

  1. In the left menu of CN Post, click Go to Full CN.
  2. Next to the course name, click the gear icon, and choose Basic Course Settings.
  3. At the bottom of the page, check the box for Open the full CN version, instead of CN Posts.
  4. Click Save and Exit.

After this setting change is complete, course members who click the CN Post tab in Canvas will go to the full CN course site.
