PCOE Canvas Training - Shared screen with speaker view
Who can see your viewing activity?
Where are the recorded zoom's going so that we can refer back to the presentations when we need them :)
I will make sure that the links are given to the district…they will distribute.
I was looking at the “available apps” that can be run with Canvas… and I tried to see if I could integrate Zoom into Canvas. Can that happen?
@Tania, The Zoom integration is only available if the district has licenses for Zoom. The “free” versions of Zoom are not available for the App integration.
Our district DOES have a license for Zoom… do they need to work with Canvas to make that available on Canvas?
That is something that can happen with time, I don’t think that particular integration has been setup…yet.
We will look into the Zoom integration Tania with our technical implementation.
Would we have more courses to import from commons when we create them this year?
Can we customize templates with our photos?
@Lisa, sure! You would have to upload your picture as a file, and you would be able to place it in pages as you see fit.
@Tania & @Lisa…I am Zoomer too. I do prefer it over the Conferences tool freely available in Canvas…
I have one computer. How do I minimize your screen so I can access my canvas?
@Mike, if you are on the Zoom window…try hitting ESC to get out of full screen mode.
I was wondering how to get out of the full screen too. Now I know.
Zoom can be a little controlling ;)

If we happen to be lucky enough to have 2 sections of the same class, is there a way to duplicate a class that has been fully completed.
@Jena…yup! There is a process called cross-listing. This allows you to have two sections of students housed in one Canvas course. So…you don’t have to curate two copies of the same content.
Yay! thanks you!
to create sections of the same course, is cross-listing executed in Admin Module?
How do I delete the template I first imported to use another one?
Is it the same as adding sections under one class in settings
Do you want to create extra sections from a roster?
Can you copy and paste photo when trying to submit photos or put them on a page? I have only been successful putting any of those images in if I save them to my desktop. For example: in the growing with canvas class I want to post a screen shot of my class and if there is a way not to save them to my computer every time that would be handy.
@Aleece…if you want to use another template, there are a couple of options…you could delete the individual elements from the course.
Second…if you are OK with it, you could go to Settings, and then “Reset Course Content” which will remove all the content from your course and gives you a clean version of your sandbox.
When I imported to my sandbox, the image Jeff has on his screen did not replace mine.
@Becky, the editor doesn’t support drag and drop from computer. You would need to use the Images panel on the left when editing, or the image icon in the editor window…I’ll get the guide on this feature for you...
@Paul…sorry I’m late to the question (and the context)…is this the image that is on the dashboard tile?
Is anyone else getting kicked off of zoom? I've been kicked off three times.
@Paul…the content is coming over, but the course settings (which govern the image on the course tile) are not part of the import.
It's on the tile but not there when I open the course.
How can you get photos side by side like the links he is showing?
That image that is on the course tile is ONLY on the tile. The file will exist in the “Files” area, but that is the only location the tile image displays...
@Becky…I believe that it may be inside a table.
I would suggest that Canvas puts in a simple button for “go back” or “undo” rather than “command Z”… most of us teachers won’t remember that specific command name
When creating an assignment is there away to use a pre-created Google Docs worksheet that the students can fill out when making an assignment submission? I figured out how to embed an google doc in the rich content editor as a teacher, but when I went into student view I was unable to see it or type into it.
How do we “cross list” multiple sections?
@Tania…that’s fair. I will say this…there is a process to suggest improvements to the Canvas platform…I’ll get that in a second...
Which button is command?
This is something called a Google Cloud Assignment in Canvas. I believe you will get specific training on this next Friday, but I will go get the official Canvas guide on that process...
Great, thank you!
Thanks, Jeff! CTRL+Z!!!
@Dana…here’s the guide on Google Cloud Assignments: https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-13063-how-do-i-create-a-cloud-assignment-with-a-google-drive-file
is there a video or page that gives instructions for creating course buttons as I work on things, then catch the last part of creating or where you can find buttons. ;)
@Tania…here is the idea space for Canvas…look to see what people are suggesting, vote for your favorites, and suggest your own: https://community.canvaslms.com/community/ideas
@Marisa…let me get the guide for Cross-listing. Also, the district may have more guidance on that process as time progresses...
@Marisa…here it is: https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-12983-4152718703
For all the PC users…COMMAND is a Mac feature…the CONTROL button in the PC equivalent. You would use CTRL+Z to undo…
@Michelle, I am not sure about that, let me see if I can find something on making an image a button...
I’m keeping a running list of future training topics, I’ll add assessments to the list.
@Michelle, let me preface something before I post the guide…you can create hyperlinks by highlighting content in Canvas. In this guide, they are showing highlighting text. If you highlight (select) the image, you can link in the same manner: https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-26551-how-do-i-insert-links-to-course-content-into-the-rich-content-editor-using-the-content-selector-as-an-instructor
I know it’s not directly an answer…but it works by analogy...
Hey everyone! Let me know if I’ve missed any questions so far…
Can this chat be saved as a Transcript and sent to us? (from Daryl)
@Tania…I believe so. If it doesn’t come with the video copy…I’ll make sure to split it up (it’s a running chat for ALL of the sessions today).
Is there a traing for special education?
HI, will we be able to easily pull weekly Newsela articles into our weekly modules?
@Jennifer, there is nothing specific for SpEd…but Canvas is flexible enough to be used to help support your students in general population courses.
We can brainstorm what SpEd looks like in the district, and find the best practices to aid you in your current support ethods.
@sstirling…there is an Integration of Newsela with Canvas…does the district have a subscription?
@ David, some schools do, not sure about whole District. We do at QHS.
Can you create subheadings under module headings?
We would have to see about the specifics, but I do know it integrates. We would likely need to contact Newsela about the specifics…
I have noticed that the header bars are different color is there a way to change the color.
@Tania…the only way to accomplish what you are asking is by adding those Text Headers. You also have the ability to indent each element in the module to show a little more heirarchy...
Or hierarchy… (if I could spell the first time).
Looks like we can integrate with Newsela but we’ll need to do some tech integration work
@Denise…the header bar color isn’t a customizable option.
Thanks Kristy…I don’t know the details of ALL of the Apps…we only have like 400...
@kristy, what is the tech integration? Is that on the Tech dept end?
IT end of things for Newsela?
Kristy, will we be using Aeries gradebook next year or will we only be using Canvas grade book?
@Suzanne- yes, all that tech integration happens behind the scenes
@Marissa- I added grading to a future training topic, I think we need to learn more about it next week. Grading does integrate with Aeries.
Kristy, what about Google Classroom? Will we be using both Canvas and GC?
Kristy, will there be specific training on discussion boards?
@lindsey, I've been frozen and dropped off Zoom 5X during this session. I'm at QHS too.
Kristy, will our students be automatically added to our courses and will they be added to the correct section/period?
How do students and parents enroll in our class? Is it via a code?
@Karen…the students will be automatically rostered from Aeries. Parents will use codes to attach themselves to their students.
That was handy! Can you share a link about how to share a whole class. I know I will want to do that but I don't think I will remember
David, If I set up my course with period 1 and period 2 as sections, will that automatic roster happen by period as well so students are added to the correct period?
I have the same question.
@Erica- yes, with the Aeries integration, courses, sections and students are automatically added
@Erica…you should just build ONE version of your course…we can cross-list the sections in to the same course.
@Karen Canvas will replace Google Classroom
You only have to curate one…assignment dates can be varied per section/period.
@Lisa Discussions are covered in the Grow With Canvas course under Module 3.2, if you have further questions we can add it as a future training topic
How do we print assignments for those without internet?

@Nicole If we are in a hybrid system, we are looking at options for open access time for students without internet to come in on their non “teacher” day, this would eliminate or reduce the need for paper packet options.
@Nicole…there is a way to do this! Students can go to Modules while they have Internet and create the download: https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-10683-4212716124
thank you both!
Thank you! Great info!
