Is anyone else having issues with Dave cutting out frequently?
Page Durham
33:41
I am not
Sheri Prupis - VCCS
33:43
No, and I'm at a hotel.
terri.milroy
33:43
No, he’s pretty clear
alooctan
33:59
OK. thanks. I might exit and rejoin.,
Sheri Prupis - VCCS
34:08
Terri. How can person join via PHONE for audio
terri.milroy
34:37
If you go to the audio icon in Zoom, click the arrow next to it for telephone options
David Levenstam

Hello!

35:32
Hi RUTH!!

35:34
This is something Dave is looking at in Canvas Commons
Sheri Prupis - VCCS
35:50
Favorites are a new feature. So dont worry if the piece you are interested in has only a few favorites.
Page Durham
36:55
Remember that we are staying after the webinar for other Canvas questions not related to the Commons.
E Hamilton
37:44
Is this a general canvas training or a specific canvas course?
David Levenstam
37:49
okay, where is the button for going to Commons?
David Levenstam
38:01
oh, I spotted it
terri.milroy
38:06
David it’s on the far left of your Canvas screen above Help
Page Durham
38:12
E. Hamilton, this is a General Session on Canvas Commons
Sheri Prupis - VCCS
39:30
Only put materials in the Commons that you are allowed to share. For example, you can share materials that you created or are OER materials. But do not share publisher content.
David Levenstam
40:27
ooh I just did that!
terri.milroy
40:43
Great!
alooctan
40:58
If you accidentally share something in Commons that you should not have, can you remove it?
Page Durham
41:08
Yes, you can remove it
Diana
41:44
I do not have a choice for my school in the commons.
terri.milroy
42:00
Diane, it may be your school hasn’t uploaded any content yet
Page Durham
42:01
Diana, not all schools have content. That is ok
Diana
42:20
Okay!
Mazhar Anik
42:46
I found what i want, how do i add it to my course?
terri.milroy
43:17
Mazhar, you have to use that Import/Download button to bring into your sandbox
Page Durham
43:21
There is a button on the right labeled import/download. Click there and add to the course where you would like it.
Mazhar Anik
43:37
thanks i got it.
Page Durham
43:58
But it may take a little time to show up.
terri.milroy
44:20
Yes, things are running REALLY slow today, so it may not show up til long after this is over. That’s okay
Diana
44:25
I imported your Canvas Roadshow. now my Sandbox course has a Home page for the Canvas Roadshow. So importing content can overwrite or change your seetings?
alooctan
44:31
Apparently you cannot search for a new topics while an old one is in the process of importing.
E Hamilton
44:42
How do I get to the canvas page?
terri.milroy
44:55
vccs.instructure.com
Page Durham
45:33
Diana, it depends on how your sandbox is set up. You can delete whatever you’d like that you don’t want.
Sheri Prupis - VCCS
45:54
Once I'm looking at course. how do I just upload one assignment rather than the entire course?
Diana
46:00
How do you delete a home page? Just change it to something else?
Page Durham
46:34
Go to pages and. pick the page that you want as your FrontPage. Use the 3 dots to make that.
terri.milroy
47:23
Sheri, if you are looking at a course, you cannot choose just part of that file, I don’t think
Page Durham
47:25
Then go to the Home link and go over to the right and pick Choose homepage

Diana
49:39
No idea what I had it set to at first. Now I have so many pages, do not know where to find it. But the Sandbox is not really important. However, I am now concerned about pulling in from Commons--overwriting!
Page Durham
50:10
Diana. https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-12784-415241445
Page Durham
51:01
Diana, Yes, you can delete it all. You will want to bring in content into an empty sandbox.
Diana
51:07
is there a best pratice for home page?
alooctan
51:22
This was worth it totally! Thanks. I did not know this was here.
David Levenstam
51:25
I’m trying to share with Commons, but it says Thumbnail Needed
Diana
51:30
For online learners, is there a best landing page?
Page Durham
51:31
Diana, what institution are you affiliated with?
terri.milroy
51:35
Diana, you need to check with your LMS Admin or ID about a home page. Each school has different policy
Page Durham
51:39
David, you have to have an image.
Diana

terri.milroy
51:53
David, that means it wants a picture
David Levenstam
51:55
oh, there has to be some image?
terri.milroy
52:11
Yes, it wants some kind of image
David Levenstam
52:21
I thought we could share without an image
Page Durham
52:45
Diana, You can contact Iris Wang and she will let you know about your homepage.
celestepaynter
53:38
I will be using The Point and some of their test bank questions. I did not see a version of their test bank that was compatible in Canvas. Can you assist?
Page Durham
53:58
Celeste is that OER content?
celestepaynter
54:05
No
celestepaynter
54:20
The Point is publisher content
terri.milroy
54:27
Celeste, email me
celestepaynter
54:40
Thanks, Terri.

There is link to our survey.
David Levenstam
55:09
okay, my biggest concern involves how much, if any, of my current courses can I copy directly into Canvas?
E Hamilton
55:30
Are there any more basic courses? Looks like I need to start at the beginning.
David Levenstam
55:31

Where do you go to activate or link to ancillary learning tools like Connect from Mc Graw Hill?
E Hamilton

and how can i access the recorded sessions?
Page Durham

edtech.vccs.edu
terri.milroy
57:58
John, most of those are apps that have been integrated into Canvas. You should ask your LMS admin how you all are accessing those resources.
whaywood
58:26
Thank you Page
Page Durham

You’re welcome :-)
Sheri Prupis - VCCS

Folks are asking about 3rd party apps. Your LMS Admin needs to put in a request to have that 3rd party tool integrated.
Sheri Prupis - VCCS
