Dave Dick's Personal Meeting Room - Shared screen with speaker view
I have no sound.
Hi everyone! Please ask any questions you have here; we have three people here to answer while Page teaches
hi to all , excited to be here
Only Page’s mic is open right now everyone and that’s by design. We’ll get started soon!
If you missed the first two webinars, there will be recordings available shortly.
I missed the first two. Where will they be made available?
@melba, yup absolutely. Stay tuned!
There will be an email sent to all VCCS faculty with the location once we get them cleaned up and ready to post.
Is sound available yet?
You should have sound now.
wow, that’s one wild flowchart!
Am I the only one without sound?
I see 10 seconds with an hourglass
Yes, you need to check your settings for sound
ah, now I see Bit-sized
or bite-sized even
No, I don't have sound.
I have sound on my phone. couldnt get it on the computer
Make sure your output in your sound settings is set correctly
Sound on the computer I had to cllick the audio on computer with the little headphones.
I uploaded a video last week
Thanks Patsy, I have sound now.
Is anyone else having an issue with sound quality tonight?
my sound is fine so far
@eileen are you using headphones?
Eileen, the sound quality is fine
Can you delete anything from here?
Okay. Must be me.
Margaret, delete from where?
@margaret, yep you can delete anything inside a module by clicking on the three dots beside the module name
@eileen there is a Test Audio option on the arrow to the right of the Audio button. Try testing your audio.
Delete from the screen Add Item Screen.
@margaret no, the Add Item screen only allows you to add new items
Here’s a good Canvas Guide for adding items to a Module: How do I add assignment types, pages, and files as module items? https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-12689-415241427
can I organize by chapter?
Jason, sound did not work for me. I had to dial in.
what’s a Trapper Keeper?
@ahawkes87 ok; that would be the next thing
Just for funsies :-) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trapper_Keeper
oops, I created a module with things in it already
How to add a powerpoint presentation in the module
@sanjeev take a look at this Canvas Guide https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-12689-415241427
oh, it’s just a subtype of spiral notebooks. we had those back in the 1960s when I started school. :-D
we called them notebooks.
Is the materials in Announcement automaticallu published without clicking the Published button?
Is there any way to save the links once the training is over
well for the 80s kids, like me, that is what we called them. lol
@Margaret, the course has to be published for the announcements to be published
the stuff in our sandbox isn’t visible to students, is it?
@sanjeev I would save the links we put in the chat into a Google Doc or Word Doc to referent later
@david as long it is not publish
@David, no. You should have no students enrolled
I LOVE the idea of a syllabus scavenger hunt! Brilliant!
Are you including tests in the topic assignments?
I created a page called About Your Instructor, a discussion board called My Instructor is Crazy!, and an assignment called My Instructor is Crazy, How Shall I Count the Ways?
Maia, tests are part of quizzes. An assignment is usually a learning activity. We will have another webinar about quizzes
@david whatever it takes ;-)
I’m know by my students for my wacky sense of humor
plus being surprisingly hard-necked. :-P
ooh, I found the Publish button
Page is a BIG Star Wars fan!! LOL
where was the Flickr link?
ooh, found it
Think of Pages in Canvas as blank web pages. They can display text, tables, links, images, files, videos, and MORE!
Can we find these webinars for later use
Can I add my videos to these pages? If so, how do I do that?
@scott yep, we’ll make sure they are available to view later. Stay tuned.
@maia are they .mp4 video files on your computer somewhere? Then yes! Add them into Arc and then put them on a page.
I don't want to add them to someone else's program and have them stored elsewhere. They are on my computer only.
Upload media to Arc - https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-9671-50736467901
Can't I just add them into the page in the module?
Arc is interal to canvas
@Maia, your files are only for you. Yes, add them to the page in the module, but store them in Arc
Is there a way to move the image to the center
It's still someone else's program that they then have my proprietary material in their system permanently.
How did you edit the image to move it again
@maia technically yes, but video files take up a lot of storage space in your course. We recommend uploading them somewhere else first and then link them in a module or page. YouTube, Arc, or Google Drive work great for that
@Sanjeev, highlight it and use the justification icon in the rich content editor
Diane, just click on the image and drag to resize
OK, got it thanks
@Maia if you don’t store them somewhere, you will overextend the max capacity of content for your course
The rich content editor is the same across all announcements, pages, discussions, assignments, and quizzes…consistency is a beautiful thing
Terri, there's no other option? I had no problem doing this on Blackboard.
Maia, it depends on the size of your videos. Your course has a max size, so you need to keep that in mind.
@maia it’s possible your Blackboard admin adjusted your course quota to allow storing large video files there. In general, that’s not a best practice though.
I don't like putting my proprietary material on someone elses serve as a permanent feature. Too many possible complications that way.
Can the number of posts to a discussion board be limited to prevent a student from making a sensless post (with the intent of posting again) just to see other replies?
@joe great question. Let me see if I can find the answer to that.
I have a picture of Darth Maul with the question, “Is your instructor crazier than Darth Maul?"
Will a recording of this seminar be available?
@David, you’re very creative tonight!
@joe How to close a discussion from comments… https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-12915-4152123824
@Ann. Yes, all the webinar videos will be made available.
It won't let me edit my discussion.
Wonderful. Thank you!
where do I look for options on the discussion page
@Sanjeev its below the box where you type the content
@sanjeev How do I edit a discussion in a course? https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-12975-415249997
how do we get to YouTube?
@david How do I link to a YouTube video in a discussion reply as an instructor? https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-12995-415250005
Is there a plagiarism checking tool for assignments?
@maia there sure is. It’s called Turnitin and every college across the VCCS has it
@Maia you may have Turnitin if your college has elected to purchase it
Oh, your college *might have it* then LOL
unrelated question because I found a quiz I copied from Bb in another module. How do I change the assignment group for the quiz? My choices are Assignments and the Discussion Grade that I just created. I use percentage not points for my final course grade.
@annabampton that’s a loaded question. How do I add an assignment group in a course? https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-10149-415241291
Anna, if you have another category already created, you can drag it in the assignments area to the correct category. If you need to create a new category, you can do that by editing the assignment and choosing “new assignment group”
Gannon is faster than I am LOL
@annabampton How do I weight the final course grade based on assignment groups? https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-10059-415267002
We will cover weighted categories in Thursday night’s webinar
I don’t see prerequisite. Where is that again?
How do I add requirements to a module? https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-13134-415261967
@ahawkes87 How do I add prerequisites to a module? https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-13092-415241433
I can never open those odt files
Can we use .png in Canvas?
@alooctan you betcha!
Yes, you can use .png
How do I add the section “Modules” to the list under Home, Announcements, Discussions, etc. That category is not in my sandbox.
@ahawkes it should be there .. is it light gray?
Terrimilroy, no it’s not there.
Is there anyway to limit the number of times a student can upload a file in an assingment?
Please take a moment to complete the webinar survey
@ahawkes check the Navigation under settings, if i am understanding your question correctly.
*Please complete the survey so we can have some valuable feedback on how we’re doing!*
@sergio.. uh no; by design
@sergio.. you can limit the time the assignment is open in order to limit the number of times a student can upload.
the links aren’t working for me
We can also arrange to share the slide deck with the recording too
@ahawkes I don’t know how to help without seeing your screen. Maybe you can call your LMS admin
@jason ok, thanks.
the KuA one is
Very informative and helpful. Thank you!!
Would you be able to email them?
they’re just images on my screen
Click on the link in the chat, not on Page’s screen
Use the links in the chat window. Not the ones on Page's display screen.
It took me to the survey
need permission for slides??
must be signed in to the vccs google account not your personal one
it did not work for me
It won't let me in. Requires access-but it won't take my Reynolds info.
@sreeves it will prompt you to sign into your VCCS Google account in order to make a copy of the slides
Doesn’t work for me either
I used the link just posted and had no problem.
I have saved the slide. Thanks, it works
We can make sure the slides are also shared with the recording…never fear!
Some of you may need to use your student email if that’s where you have Google access
not sure what my vccs google account is?? @email.vccs.edu??
There is something wrong with my google account because I worked at another VCCS college.
where is the slide deck link?
everyone will need to use their My College log-in credentials.
Yes, student email is @email.vccs.edu
@sreeves yes, the same VCCS user name and then @email.vccs.edu along with your MyVCCS password
Page, can you email the link? firstname.lastname@example.org
Jason - can you get the link and then send it to me? Jackie Spencer
Thanks so much for joining us tonight! What a great turnout!

was it a PowerPoint original?
@jackie.. i send it via email
I am not going to be able to get in. Any way to send me the ppt? I WAS able to complete the survey, strangely enough.
Oh I see. Never mind.
How can we access the previous training material
What is your email address?
Page posted her email above email@example.com
It was helpful. Thank you!
This was a great pace. Thank you Page.
where can we access all these videos?
Thanks so much!
Very informative! Thanks!
Thank you any ways . I definitely learned something
