Did Some Say Swag?
If you've attended an InstructureCon or CanvasCon event, you know about the highly sought-after swag. With so many far-flung attendees, free custom swag is limited this year, so register by October 5th and check your inbox for an email from Badgr, which will enroll you in a Swag Pathway, The first 1,000 people to complete the Pathway will earn one of these coveted Instructure items (you'll get a code to redeem your swag shortly after the conference). And all is not lost when this swag runs out—you can still buy Instructure goods in the swag shop.
Let’s Get Social!
We’ve definitely learned that you don’t need to be in-person to be social. Head to Twitter and share your thoughts, impressions, and takeaways using the hashtags #instcon or #InstructureCon. We'll feature some of our favorite tweets after the event!
