David Levenstam
46:25
wow, that’s one wild flowchart!
ahawkes87
47:03
Am I the only one without sound?
David Levenstam
47:20
I see 10 seconds with an hourglass
terrimilroy
47:26
Yes, you need to check your settings for sound
David Levenstam

Eileen Mundok
49:40
Is anyone else having an issue with sound quality tonight?
David Levenstam
49:40
cool
David Levenstam
49:52
my sound is fine so far
Jason Vance
50:10
@eileen are you using headphones?
Eileen Mundok
50:19
no
terrimilroy
50:40
Eileen, the sound quality is fine
Margaret Chung
50:43
Can you delete anything from here?
Eileen Mundok
50:54
Okay. Must be me.
terrimilroy
51:03
Margaret, delete from where?
Gannon Nordberg
51:12
@margaret, yep you can delete anything inside a module by clicking on the three dots beside the module name
Jason Vance
51:25
@eileen there is a Test Audio option on the arrow to the right of the Audio button. Try testing your audio.
Margaret Chung
51:28
Delete from the screen Add Item Screen.
Gannon Nordberg
52:00
@margaret no, the Add Item screen only allows you to add new items
Gannon Nordberg
53:33
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
David Levenstam
53:52
can I organize by chapter?
Gannon Nordberg
54:00
@david yes!
David Levenstam
54:09
thanks Gannon!
ahawkes87
54:43
Jason, sound did not work for me. I had to dial in.
David Levenstam
55:07
what’s a Trapper Keeper?
Jason Vance
55:21
@ahawkes87 ok; that would be the next thing
Gannon Nordberg
55:39
Just for funsies :-) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trapper_Keeper
David Levenstam
55:40
oops, I created a module with things in it already
Sanjeev Saxena
55:48
How to add a powerpoint presentation in the module
Gannon Nordberg
56:31
@sanjeev take a look at this Canvas Guide https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-12689-415241427
David Levenstam
56:32
oh, it’s just a subtype of spiral notebooks. we had those back in the 1960s when I started school. :-D
David Levenstam
56:53
we called them notebooks.
Margaret Chung
56:55
Is the materials in Announcement automaticallu published without clicking the Published button?
Sanjeev Saxena
57:09
Is there any way to save the links once the training is over
Jason Vance
57:17
well for the 80s kids, like me, that is what we called them. lol
terrimilroy
57:37
@Margaret, the course has to be published for the announcements to be published
David Levenstam
57:40
the stuff in our sandbox isn’t visible to students, is it?
Gannon Nordberg
57:50
@sanjeev I would save the links we put in the chat into a Google Doc or Word Doc to referent later
Jason Vance
57:55
@david as long it is not publish
terrimilroy
58:06
@David, no. You should have no students enrolled
Gannon Nordberg
59:03
I LOVE the idea of a syllabus scavenger hunt! Brilliant!
Maia
59:10
Are you including tests in the topic assignments?
David Levenstam
59:41
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?
terrimilroy
59:51
Maia, tests are part of quizzes. An assignment is usually a learning activity. We will have another webinar about quizzes
Gannon Nordberg
01:00:00
@david whatever it takes ;-)
David Levenstam
01:00:07
:-D
David Levenstam
01:00:26
I’m know by my students for my wacky sense of humor
David Levenstam
01:00:44
plus being surprisingly hard-necked. :-P
David Levenstam
01:01:18
ooh, I found the Publish button
Jason Vance
01:03:33
@David ..great!!!
terrimilroy
01:04:52
Page is a BIG Star Wars fan!! LOL
Gannon Nordberg
01:05:15
https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000184/?ref_=tt_ov_dr
David Levenstam
01:06:15
where was the Flickr link?
David Levenstam
01:06:43
ooh, found it
Gannon Nordberg
01:06:49
Think of Pages in Canvas as blank web pages. They can display text, tables, links, images, files, videos, and MORE!
terrimilroy
01:06:56
Great David!
Scott
01:07:15
Can we find these webinars for later use
Maia
01:07:36
Can I add my videos to these pages? If so, how do I do that?
Gannon Nordberg
01:07:40
@scott yep, we’ll make sure they are available to view later. Stay tuned.
Gannon Nordberg
01:08:08
@maia are they .mp4 video files on your computer somewhere? Then yes! Add them into Arc and then put them on a page.
Maia
01:08:34
I don't want to add them to someone else's program and have them stored elsewhere. They are on my computer only.
Gannon Nordberg
01:08:45
Upload media to Arc - https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-9671-50736467901
Maia
01:08:46
Can't I just add them into the page in the module?
Jason Vance
01:08:58
Arc is interal to canvas
terrimilroy
01:09:02
@Maia, your files are only for you. Yes, add them to the page in the module, but store them in Arc
Sanjeev Saxena
01:09:18
Is there a way to move the image to the center
Maia
01:09:28
It's still someone else's program that they then have my proprietary material in their system permanently.
Diane
01:09:43
How did you edit the image to move it again
Gannon Nordberg
01:09:44
@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
terrimilroy
01:09:47
@Sanjeev, highlight it and use the justification icon in the rich content editor
terrimilroy
01:10:13
Diane, just click on the image and drag to resize
Sanjeev Saxena
01:10:46
OK, got it thanks
terrimilroy
01:11:03
@Maia if you don’t store them somewhere, you will overextend the max capacity of content for your course
Gannon Nordberg
01:11:08
The rich content editor is the same across all announcements, pages, discussions, assignments, and quizzes…consistency is a beautiful thing
Maia
01:11:31
Terri, there's no other option? I had no problem doing this on Blackboard.
terrimilroy
01:12:08
Maia, it depends on the size of your videos. Your course has a max size, so you need to keep that in mind.
Gannon Nordberg
01:12:22
@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.
Maia
01:13:13
I don't like putting my proprietary material on someone elses serve as a permanent feature. Too many possible complications that way.
Gannon Nordberg
01:13:27
@maia understood
Joe Joyner
01:14:39
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?
Gannon Nordberg
01:15:31
@joe great question. Let me see if I can find the answer to that.
David Levenstam
01:16:24
I have a picture of Darth Maul with the question, “Is your instructor crazier than Darth Maul?"
Ann
01:16:52
Will a recording of this seminar be available?
terrimilroy
01:16:55
@David, you’re very creative tonight!
David Levenstam
01:17:00
lol
Gannon Nordberg
01:17:01
@joe How to close a discussion from comments… https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-12915-4152123824
David Levenstam
01:17:08
thanks terri!
terrimilroy
01:17:11
@Ann. Yes, all the webinar videos will be made available.
alooctan
01:17:13
It won't let me edit my discussion.
Ann
01:17:32
Wonderful. Thank you!
alooctan
01:17:43
Never mind...
Sanjeev Saxena
01:17:53
where do I look for options on the discussion page
terrimilroy
01:18:37
@Sanjeev its below the box where you type the content
Gannon Nordberg
01:18:53
@sanjeev How do I edit a discussion in a course? https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-12975-415249997
David Levenstam
01:20:03
how do we get to YouTube?
Gannon Nordberg
01:20:33
@david How do I link to a YouTube video in a discussion reply as an instructor? https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-12995-415250005
Maia
01:23:44
Is there a plagiarism checking tool for assignments?
Gannon Nordberg
01:24:06
@maia there sure is. It’s called Turnitin and every college across the VCCS has it
terrimilroy
01:24:10
@Maia you may have Turnitin if your college has elected to purchase it
Gannon Nordberg
01:24:33
Oh, your college *might have it* then LOL
annabampton
01:27:44
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.
Gannon Nordberg
01:28:35
@annabampton that’s a loaded question. How do I add an assignment group in a course? https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-10149-415241291
terrimilroy
01:28:47
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”
terrimilroy
01:28:53
Gannon is faster than I am LOL
Gannon Nordberg
01:28:57
@annabampton How do I weight the final course grade based on assignment groups? https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-10059-415267002
terrimilroy
01:29:26
We will cover weighted categories in Thursday night’s webinar
Gannon Nordberg
01:29:37

David Levenstam
01:32:48
I can never open those odt files
ahawkes87
01:32:53
Thanks Gannon
alooctan
01:32:55
Can we use .png in Canvas?
Gannon Nordberg
01:33:09
@alooctan you betcha!
terrimilroy
01:33:13
Yes, you can use .png
ahawkes87
01:33:28
How do I add the section “Modules” to the list under Home, Announcements, Discussions, etc. That category is not in my sandbox.
terrimilroy
01:33:53
@ahawkes it should be there .. is it light gray?
ahawkes87
01:34:18
Terrimilroy, no it’s not there.

Please take a moment to complete the webinar survey
Jason Vance
01:34:46
@ahawkes check the Navigation under settings, if i am understanding your question correctly.
Gannon Nordberg
01:34:48
*Please complete the survey so we can have some valuable feedback on how we’re doing!*
Jason Vance
01:35:02
@sergio.. uh no; by design
billie
01:35:25
billie.keene@sw.edu
Jason Vance
01:35:42
@sergio.. you can limit the time the assignment is open in order to limit the number of times a student can upload.
David Levenstam
01:35:45
the links aren’t working for me
Gannon Nordberg
01:35:59
We can also arrange to share the slide deck with the recording too

01:37:11
It worked
laurencemazella
01:37:16
It took me to the survey
sreeves
01:37:23

jim
01:37:36

laurencemazella
01:37:39
it did not work for me
alooctan
01:37:44
It won't let me in. Requires access-but it won't take my Reynolds info.
Gannon Nordberg
01:37:51
@sreeves it will prompt you to sign into your VCCS Google account in order to make a copy of the slides
jacquelinespencer

Gannon Nordberg
01:38:19
We can make sure the slides are also shared with the recording…never fear!
terrimilroy
01:38:26
Some of you may need to use your student email if that’s where you have Google access
sreeves
01:38:32
not sure what my vccs google account is?? @email.vccs.edu??
alooctan
01:38:38
There is something wrong with my google account because I worked at another VCCS college.
David Levenstam
01:38:38
where is the slide deck link?
Jason Vance
01:38:48
everyone will need to use their My College log-in credentials.
terrimilroy
01:39:04
Yes, student email is @email.vccs.edu
Gannon Nordberg
01:39:07
