Welcome, everyone! My name is Kenneth and I will be your trainer today. We’ll get started here in just a few minutes!
Dr. A. McGrew
Good Morning Kenneth!
Good morning, Monica and Dr. McGrew!
Good morning everyone! Happy Wednesday!
Can we do attendance reports?
Grade report will be useful to batch upload the data to our database.
The unpublished course report might be helpful to track the progress specialists are making on their courses.
The Students with No Submissions report will be very helpful. If students are not completing initial assignments, then they can't continue in our Reading by Design course.
The zero activity /students with no submissions reports will be helpful for monitoring my learners since my class has required prework and ongoing work that takes place after training.
Reports can help us identify different trends.
The User Course Access Log gives me some good information to know how long students are taking to progress through my courses.
Zero activity to see who has signed into the course
Can use Students with no submissions report for those who haven't completed makeup sessions for our New Admin Induction.
Hi, I know I will definitly use the ZERO ACTIVITY, we need to report to TEA by a certain date who is ACTIVE/INACTIVE in our cycles
Ingrid Lee R4
I'm new but appreciate the variety of useful reports
I think this will be a great way to support our team with at a glance information on public courses, unpublished, zero activity! Dashboard access to our professional learning offerings!
Can you tell us about outcomes (export/results)?
Will be helpful to review multiple data points in order to plan accordingly.
Are outcomes connected or can be connected to existing standards?
Right Alyson! I love having access to the multiple data points for planning! Rich conversations!
Yes we do
Thanks Kenneth! We appreciate you and we can related to coffee! Loving my pumpkin spice coffee!
Yep. That was EPS' first day of school for the Oct Cycle :-)
Congratulations Rene!!! Awesome!
As an admin, will we be able to view the courses that are in the process of being built by our teams? Or will we only see them when they've been completed?
Yes, Kelley, you'll be able to see all the courses in your department account
Great! Thanks Monica.
With the apps, we plan to have a vetting committee to review before installing to Canvas. All apps work differently and need to be tested ahead of time for their compatibility and use, as well as the data they pull that we may not want them to have access to. More to come on APP vetting :)
What do I do with all the Apps I downloaded?
Just kidding :-)
Announcements will be very helpful.
I can see me using the Global announcment to reach all our instructros
Global Announcements will be helpful to get information out to our canddiates
Reports and Analytics
Apps if we can use some of them to add to our courses
Can't wait to see the approved APPs
I'm on the APP train, too
Some are free, but many require subscriptions with vendors, forgot to mention that point as well :)
Agree with Jan approved Apps to use with our teacher candiates
Reports...for example seeing our instructor to teacher ration of 1 instructor for every 13 students was helpful
Apps are going to be quite popular, allowing for a more robust course. I am with Jan, can't wait to see them.
Does free mean "with ads"?
But every app functions differently, so it may not have all the functions you want it to, or that it has in it's innate form (like on their website)
We might need to change some naming conventions to show what Masters is under. Good thing to see, so as we chart on, we will keep adjusting to suit our needs :)
Is there a way to organize that screen? We have classes that start every month?
what is a blueprint course...is that our master?
It looks like they are in order of the date of creation. Correct?
can we enroll a group of candidates that are enrolled in one course, into another course? in other words, I need the same group of students in other courses
so, there is not a siple way to take one group and copy the student to the other group?
How about a batch enroll. We're talking 300 students :-0
My question exactly! Thanks Rene
We batch enroll from escworks for G/T
If a course is a MASTER, and I made copies of that master, then if I make changes to that master, will those changes also be reflected on previosuly copied courses?
If we set up the MASTER as a blueprint course
And associate the courses to that MASTER blueprint
That's great! Yes
OK. where do we start? Home?
Got it. Thanks!
How does the username and password generation work for new participants?
Kathi, for now, we put them in by email address for the username and they create their own password
There may be a time in the future where they will Single Sign On using their escWorks log in, but we are not at that point yet
Claim code: mini training
Monica, what you are saying is that if the course is selected as BLUE PRINT, and I make changes in it, those changes will be reflected in PREVIOUS copied courses?
Thank you Kenneth!
Great job! Thanks. Do you have any last minute advise for admins who support instructors
Rosario, we are not able to change what has been done to a blueprint at this point since the content is all in there
I mean since the courses have been duplicated...originally with blueprints, you want to associate them to blank course shells and then push the blueprint to those shells
Then from that point on, changes in the blueprint can trickle down to the associated courses
We might need to look at this after your cycle, for upcoming cycles
So then changes to the Blueprint will occur the next time you push it to a shell?
The Blueprint is the master, so changes will occur to the courses associated to it
You can choose to sync certain settings, content, or both content and settings
Good advise... Our instructors are external consultants and we need to document for back up...thanks Kenneth!
Thank you for all the great information! :)
Ingrid Lee R4
Thanks :) Take Care!
Thank you Kennet! great job!
