F.A.QMust students create an account?- Students can post as guest. Ensure your canvas settings allow guests to poststickies. However, you will not be able to track which students have posted.- To overcome this problem teachers can instruct students to post their nameunder tag (without space) for tracking purpose.

F.A.QCan I share the link to the canvas to students via email instead of creatinggroup to invite them?- Yes, you can. But remember to uncheck “List on Public Canvases” so thatother users on Linoit are unable to view it.

Cons of LinoitUsers are unable to reply to stickies- But teacher can instruct students to post their comment or reply next to thesticky they’re replying to.
