Who can see your viewing activity?
Can the cover images change?
The titles of the courses are kind of clunky as is, is there anyway to change the title or is that set?
Can you delete the sandbox courses from your dashboard (I have three and probably only need one)?
Yes, you can change the image on the card in the settings of the course
You can adjust the name of your courses in the settings for the course once you go into it
Should we already have the courses added to our Canvas that we’ve been assigned to teach for the Fall?
I can only see “card view” on the Dash View menu. Why am I missing the other menu options?
@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
@Jessica Stark They will show up once it's assigned in the scheduling system
@Upulee, When you click on the three dots you don't have any other menu options like list or recent activity?
@Daniel. no I don’t
@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
Are assignments automatically added to calendar?
@Christine As long as they have a due date, yes.
@Daniel, okay thanks!
So emails from canvas don’t necessarily go to the students unless their notifications are set correctly?
The notifications are set by default to go into their mailbox, but they can go change that
Can you show us where in notifications to set up an email notification that we’ve received a message in our Canvas inbox?
Where can we find the students’ emails—to email them before the semester starts?
Her zoom video vanished for everyone right? (I think the camera got captured by canvas and taken away from zoom.)
Yes, thank you!
@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)
The banner & Course Card Request form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSe1-kAC6qIAErXYKOhVv-xYiLrhFGSxIGcwHU0i0L1PgzbV0A/viewform
where do you put a descriptive text to tell students what to do - would this be a "page"?
@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
How about uploading video clips that are not from Canvas Studio?
@Ramin You can embed video clips from other services if you have the code, or link them
You can also upload some videos into studio if you produced them elsewhere
In case we want to modify a published resource such as a powerpoint, what do we do.
@FNU You can re-upload it, and if it has the same name it will just replace the current file.
have we seen the to-do list for students before?
@Ian, You mean adding the page to the student's to-do list?
That wasn't always there; it was added, in a canvas release. Give me a minute to find the notes
Thank you Daniel
Can I see how students see the course—i.e. student’s view?
@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
Hi Daniel, would it be possible to hide certain things from the students’ navigation but keep it in your own?
@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
can you get Canvas to automatically drop an assignment/assignments with a group?
oh there we go!
Man this grading system is so much more intuitive then Moodle.
Is there a preview mode, where I can see what students will see, just to avoid surprises
@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
@Daniel, Thank you
You're very welcome!
Can you set late work to automatically be docked by a percentage?
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)
@Amy - you can, but we don't cover that in depth in this training. There is a training on the gradebook that is separate.
Okay thanks, I’ll sign up for that.
@Eirin If you go into the settings for the course and then "sections" it will show you all the sections in your course
@Amy, You can also set up a consultation and we'll be happy to chat with you one on one about it
hey Daniel, I have to leave early, if I have questions about canvas in the future, who should I contact?
How can you have students submit multiple files for one assignment?
@Daniel - thanks, looks like there is only one section (glad I checked), how do I get my other section added?
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
@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 firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll help you to get it situated like you need
Can you select the "shuffle answers" option at the question level?
@Eirin, Unfortunately no, it's for the whole quiz
Is that instantaneously?
@David I'm sorry, I'm not sure what you're asking?
Like when they answer the question, will it immediately show them the answer? Or is cumulative at the end of the exam.
It's after they submit the whole exam
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.
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)
@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
Can you feed that progress into the grader?
I mean if you have requirements for modules can they be put automatically into the grades?
So incase I want to use Publisher questions we need to communicate to CIRT?
@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
@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
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?
@Jonghoon Actually, the most recent update Modules now allow multiple files to be uploaded at one time
Thank you, Daniel!
You're very welcome.
How do you get permission to import the templates?
@David When you go to commons and find the template, and click on it, there will be an option import or download it
Ahh they are uploaded in commons. Understood. Thanks
is there a virtual whiteboard function in there?
Excellent information! Thank you!
Thank you, Katie!!
Thanks so much!
Furious alright. :D
