Canvas is an online collaborative tool that allows individuals to share ideas by editing documents from separate computers. The tool's utilization of Markdown sets this tool apart from other file sharing and collaborative editing devices. As a writing and notetaking tool, Markdown allows users to quickly and easily incorporate special text forms (i.e. bold or italics), bullet points, to-do lists, hyperlinks, or code blocks using only keyboard commands. (To learn more about Markdown, check out the 10-02-2015 edition of the Scout Report ). Canvas users can invite others to view or edit their document - or "canvas" - by sending an email invitation or by passing along a security key.
