Thank you!!!
Jessica Borusky
31:34
yes
Adam Solomon
31:43
Can the cover images change?
Amy Bennion
31:47
The titles of the courses are kind of clunky as is, is there anyway to change the title or is that set?
Amy Bennion
32:03
Can you delete the sandbox courses from your dashboard (I have three and probably only need one)?
Daniel Mainwaring
32:04
Yes, you can change the image on the card in the settings of the course
Daniel Mainwaring
32:21
You can adjust the name of your courses in the settings for the course once you go into it
Jessica Stark
33:20
Should we already have the courses added to our Canvas that we’ve been assigned to teach for the Fall?
Upulee Kanewala
33:37
I can only see “card view” on the Dash View menu. Why am I missing the other menu options?
Daniel Mainwaring
33:51
@Amy Bennion You can favorite them by going to courses and then all courses, and clicking the star to favorite the courses you want on your dashboard
Daniel Mainwaring
34:18
@Jessica Stark They will show up once it's assigned in the scheduling system
Daniel Mainwaring
34:55
@Upulee, When you click on the three dots you don't have any other menu options like list or recent activity?
Upulee Kanewala
35:17
@Daniel. no I don’t
Daniel Mainwaring
36:44
@Upulee, I believe that's because no courses are published or have any activity yet. Once you begin putting in content you will have the other options
christinewhite
37:02
Are assignments automatically added to calendar?
Daniel Mainwaring
37:18
@Christine As long as they have a due date, yes.
Upulee Kanewala
37:18
@Daniel, okay thanks!
Amy Bennion
38:38
So emails from canvas don’t necessarily go to the students unless their notifications are set correctly?
Daniel Mainwaring
38:59
The notifications are set by default to go into their mailbox, but they can go change that
j.tomlinson
39:59
Can you show us where in notifications to set up an email notification that we’ve received a message in our Canvas inbox?
Amy Bennion
41:03
Where can we find the students’ emails—to email them before the semester starts?
David Bennett
41:33
Her zoom video vanished for everyone right? (I think the camera got captured by canvas and taken away from zoom.)
j.tomlinson
42:47
Yes, thank you!
Daniel Mainwaring
43:32
@Amy Bennion, You can get that through Banner (here's guidance on how to do so: https://www.unf.edu/its/help_desk/Communicating_to_a_Class.aspx)
Amy Bennion
43:39
Thanks!

where do you put a descriptive text to tell students what to do - would this be a "page"?
Daniel Mainwaring
54:53
@Erin That can vary depending on what you want. You can put that on a page, but it's also possible to put it directly on the assignment
Ramin Shabanpour
55:17
How about uploading video clips that are not from Canvas Studio?
Daniel Mainwaring
56:28
@Ramin You can embed video clips from other services if you have the code, or link them
Daniel Mainwaring
56:47
You can also upload some videos into studio if you produced them elsewhere
FNU Amrita
56:52
In case we want to modify a published resource such as a powerpoint, what do we do.
Ramin Shabanpour
57:08
Thank you
Daniel Mainwaring
57:52
@FNU You can re-upload it, and if it has the same name it will just replace the current file.
FNU Amrita
59:17
Thank you
Ian Crawford-Goss
01:02:36
have we seen the to-do list for students before?
Daniel Mainwaring
01:02:59
@Ian, You mean adding the page to the student's to-do list?
Ian Crawford-Goss
01:03:06
I do
Daniel Mainwaring
01:05:22
That wasn't always there; it was added, in a canvas release. Give me a minute to find the notes
Ian Crawford-Goss
01:06:19
Thank you Daniel
Upulee Kanewala
01:07:26
Can I see how students see the course—i.e. student’s view?
Daniel Mainwaring
01:08:29
@Upulee Yes you can! There is an option on the home page that says student view (which is also in the course settings). Katie will demonstrate that later
Upulee Kanewala
01:08:52
Thank you!
Amy Bennion
01:09:21
Hi Daniel, would it be possible to hide certain things from the students’ navigation but keep it in your own?
Daniel Mainwaring
01:09:58
@Amy Yes! You can do that through settings for the course and then select the navigation option. The only thing that can't be hidden is "Home." Katie will also demonstrate that later
Eirin Sullivan
01:11:29
can you get Canvas to automatically drop an assignment/assignments with a group?
Eirin Sullivan
01:11:41
oh there we go!
David Bennett
01:11:44
Man this grading system is so much more intuitive then Moodle.
Daniel Mainwaring
01:12:28
@Eirin, Yes!
tom
01:13:27
Is there a preview mode, where I can see what students will see, just to avoid surprises
Daniel Mainwaring
01:16:09
@Tom, Yes, there is a student view that will put you in a test student view, which can be accessed through the home page or in the settings of the course, where you can go through the course as a student
tom
01:17:14
@Daniel, Thank you
Daniel Mainwaring
01:17:23
You're very welcome!
Amy Bennion
01:19:18
Can you set late work to automatically be docked by a percentage?
Eirin Sullivan
01:19:56
I think I already have two sections combined in my course - is there any way I can tell? (I'm just guessing as I'm down to teach two and I only see one)
Daniel Mainwaring
01:20:12
@Amy - you can, but we don't cover that in depth in this training. There is a training on the gradebook that is separate.
Amy Bennion
01:20:28
Okay thanks, I’ll sign up for that.
Daniel Mainwaring
01:20:42
@Eirin If you go into the settings for the course and then "sections" it will show you all the sections in your course
Daniel Mainwaring
01:21:13
@Amy, You can also set up a consultation and we'll be happy to chat with you one on one about it
Ian Crawford-Goss
01:21:20
hey Daniel, I have to leave early, if I have questions about canvas in the future, who should I contact?
Daniel Mainwaring
01:22:09
cirtlab@unf.edu
Amy Bennion
01:22:14
How can you have students submit multiple files for one assignment?
Eirin Sullivan
01:22:29
@Daniel - thanks, looks like there is only one section (glad I checked), how do I get my other section added?
Amy Bennion
01:23:30
Perfect thanks!
Daniel Mainwaring
01:23:54
You can also join the CIRT community team https://teams.microsoft.com/l/team/19%3a711b58c2d4bb40e1b4e97b5a66e453cb%40thread.tacv2/conversations?groupId=f60f1fe9-62e3-4eb4-8ece-7d9376e8eba7&tenantId=df29b2fa-8929-482f-9dbb-60ff4df224c4
Daniel Mainwaring
01:24:38
@Eirin If you're teaching another section, it might be created if a different course shell; if that's the case shoot an e-mail to cirtlab@unf.edu and we'll help you to get it situated like you need
Eirin Sullivan
01:37:57
Can you select the "shuffle answers" option at the question level?
Daniel Mainwaring
01:38:50
@Eirin, Unfortunately no, it's for the whole quiz
David Bennett
01:39:18
Is that instantaneously?
Daniel Mainwaring
01:39:54
@David I'm sorry, I'm not sure what you're asking?
David Bennett
01:39:58
Like when they answer the question, will it immediately show them the answer? Or is cumulative at the end of the exam.
Daniel Mainwaring
01:40:15
It's after they submit the whole exam
David Bennett
01:40:49
Ok. Good. Some exams have questions that are interrelated, so if it immediately shows them the right answer it would effect their progress on other questions, particularly if the exam only shows one question at a time.
Eirin Sullivan
01:41:48
Is it possible to show answers after a delay? (i.e. if I give students a 24 hour window to take the test, then the answers are released to all after that window closes)
Daniel Mainwaring
01:42:22
@eirin, They'll be able to see their response (and which questions they got incorrect) right away, but you can set a delay on showing the correct answers
Amy Bennion
01:56:19
Can you feed that progress into the grader?
Amy Bennion
01:57:19
I mean if you have requirements for modules can they be put automatically into the grades?
FNU Amrita
01:57:49
So incase I want to use Publisher questions we need to communicate to CIRT?
Daniel Mainwaring
01:57:54
@Amy It will collect the grades of the assignments and quizzes that they've done, but the progression through the modules doesn't link to grades
Daniel Mainwaring
01:58:23
@FNU if you're unsure of how to do so we'll be happy to help, but lots of publishers have their questions formatted in a way that allows for easy upload into Canvas
FNU Amrita
01:58:55
Thank you
Jonghoon Kim
02:01:08
I wonder if there is a way to upload mutil-files to module at once. Otherwise, I need to upload a single file each time?
Daniel Mainwaring
02:04:13
@Jonghoon Actually, the most recent update Modules now allow multiple files to be uploaded at one time
Jonghoon Kim
02:04:38
Thank you, Daniel!
Daniel Mainwaring
02:04:49
You're very welcome.
David Bennett
02:06:13
How do you get permission to import the templates?
Daniel Mainwaring
02:07:53
@David When you go to commons and find the template, and click on it, there will be an option import or download it
David Bennett
02:08:14
Ahh they are uploaded in commons. Understood. Thanks
Eirin Sullivan
02:15:54
is there a virtual whiteboard function in there?
Adam Solomon
02:18:46
Excellent information! Thank you!
j.tomlinson
