How do I create a long-running Conference?

Canvas recently introduced a new page design called the New Canvas User Interface (UI). Depending on your Canvas view, your page design may vary from the images shown in this lesson. However, the functionality and location of the components remain the same.

Long-running conferences can be used in multiple ways. You can use conferences as a place for users to interact with other users, or you can show your presentation slides to the class and speak with them at the same time. Long-running conferences do not include a time limit.
