Mike McManamen Canvas Admin ACSD1 Here to Help!
Hi, Teri Robinson from Laramie, WY (Laramie High School)
Hello, I am getting no sound (LCSD#1)
I hear you loud and clear.
yes i hear audio
I hear you
Yes, to sound
Loud and clear
Also LCSD1, no sound
I hear you
I hear you!
Yes, I can hear
I do not hear any audio. How do I fix it?
There is an option for calling in via phone as well…look for the microphone icon...
I hear you. Good morning!
I hear you
If MacBook, you might need to put in your password to allow admin permissions. Look for a dialogue box behind the program
yes for sound
If you click on the up "arrow" next to the mic, it gives some options for connecting to speakers--it may make sure you are connected to your computer speakers or headphones...depending on what you're using.
Do we need to leave and re-enter in order to see the mic? (LCSD#1)
I can hear it now.
Can we minimize this to get to our Canvas page?
I had to hit "ESCAPE" to minimize
Top of screen has view options
I am not able to minimize--any suggestions
Mouse to the top of page and choose view options or hit escape
Hi, David! Didn't recognize you with the headphones on!
If you put the Zoom screen on small and put Canvas behind it, it works well. You can easily go back and forth.
Can you have a single event apply to multiple classes?
What is the length limit for the recording that can be attached?
Can you attach things from Google Drive?
Katrina, You can attach things from google drive in Canvas. You can also integrate google and Office 365 right into your assignments. Pretty cool
When you are composing a new message in the inbox, how do you add your students so that they can show up in the address list?
Can you attach a link to an outside platform? I use theraplatform for live sessions with students. Can a link be included to those meetings within canvas?
Why are my students not popping up in the inbox? When I go to the class they are there.
You can attach outside links in Canvas
I am also missing students in the inbox, but not in the course. (ACSD#1)
We were told in UCSD#1 that the students have been uploaded to Canvas? I see that John Springer is on, what is the problem?
Let me check with our Canvas rep Eric
Chris, Elementary students are not all in Canvas at this point. We can talk to Sean about that
That is what we were told and we will check in with district personnel about MS and HS.
Sounds good. Thanks.
Love the phone app...
Can more than one teacher share and contribute to a course?
Eric, from Jason, they are imported from PS
Eric, My understanding is that canvas is purchased by the district at a reduced cost per state contract. Somewhere it was decided that elementary did not need it. I suspect it was the additional costs.
In ACSD1 I create courses we call "Sandbox" that our PLC teams create all content and then move it into their individual courses very quickly
My classes are populated with the wrong class names. How can I edit these class names?
CCSD1 purchased for 6th-12th grade. It was a discounted price setup by WDE. We reached out this week and Canvas said we could use it at no additional cost for K-5th grade students. Thanks Canvas and WDE!
If your admin has set it so you can change class names you can do this under settings of your course
I am a Para and I don't have a lot of these tabs on the side.
Kathy, As a para the teacher can add you to courses as a full contributor or an observer
ok thank you
If we have a chance, please address linking to Newsela.
Are students able to record a video directly on Canvas to respond?
That's a great questions! I'd like to know that as well.
Students can submit videos or audios in assignments. It works great!
I have all of my students in the Canvas course, but how do I add parents? I teach 3rd grade so parents are the main contact to get started.
Will announcements post to their calendar?
Students have to generate a code that can add their parents. You can generate all student codes at once and send them to parents. With HS students you want them to generate their own
how am I to tag onto someone's (teacher's) canvas page?
Is there a way to edit your announcements?
Yes you can edit announcements. Click on it and the edit button is top right
Can you "share" your announcements?
how did you link the announcements in page again? Sorry I missed that part?
How does Canvas show that students have in fact watched to video?
Hey Toni The webinar is being recorded and David will send out the link to everyone so you can rewind and see it again :)
Jessica You can set up your modules to tell you if a student has watched the video (It won't track if they watched the whole thing) but you can look and see how long each student is spending in Canvas
Can you embed a power point presentation from One Drive?
How do you set up modules to see how long students spend on canvas?
Rob, you can embed power point presentations in an assignment and you can assign a any office 365 or google assignment that automatically creates a copy for each student that they have to submit back to you.
Toni within each module you can choose the 3 dots on the right and choose edit. You then set up many features for each assignment in the module. I set up mine so students can't see the next modules until they finish the current module Here is how https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-13134-415261967
Can I share my screen with my students rather than video of me talking?
Sammi We are showing teachers how to record screencasts using Zoom and then linking the video back to Canvas. This allows more features for teachers to record themselves and using all tools on their computers
Sammi There are many other tools as well. Screencastify is a free google add on that works pretty good and is free!
Great for Theater class as well!
Printing might be hard since not all kids have a printer at home
ACSD1: Here is a link that shows you how to use Zoom to record yourself and share your screen. Very quick and easy! https://acsdone.sharepoint.com/portals/hub/_layouts/15/PointPublishing.aspx?app=video&p=p&chid=d68683ad-36f7-40a6-a626-cd2de6ff1408&vid=0ce9036b-3c39-41b7-8c2e-7c9cf32e07d5
Everyone else that is interested I also created this in my google account and made it public. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1l4N7iwM-4NueE7J21t4_T4MrvjABRFyD/view?usp=sharing
In discussion, do all students see the reply?
Yikes, it sounds like they can!
Jessica All students will see replies.
Are you able to allow content to be viewed by some students only... and not the entire class?
Yes You could assign something to an individual student that others couldn't see
Can students print Word or PDF documents that are uploaded to modules? If so, how?
Mike-how can we import a unit from the MAS sandbox?
Greg - You can't share a whole Module from the Sandbox. You can share any page, quiz, assignment. If you want to share larger content you must share in the commons
I have created modules, with assignments with 0 points. When I look at student progress, it shows that they're all completed. I know this is not true. What elements do I need so that student progress shows who has actually gotten in and looked at modules.
Gotcha...but then how do we take each assignment from Sandbox to MAS?
Can you duplicate a class? So that you can use it next quarter?
How do you hide/unhide what list of content the students can see along the left of the screen?
The audio and visual tools are awesome for students with Learning Disabilities. Are there other tools that students with special needs could benefit from?
How long to modules created stay in Canvas so that what we create can be used again?
So linking to a Newsela article should be just like David did with Wikipedia.
Rod When you are in your course choose settings - Navigation tab at top. You can move things into what students see and out of what students can see
Do you have to sizable everything class by class or does it do it for all classes?
Katrina, you have to do it in every course.
David, Here is a great guideline we are using at ACSD1
Thanks for this! Very helpful!
Thanks so much for doing this. It was very helpful. :)
Thank you for this most useful information!
these are recorded right?
Thank you so much for ths.
Awesome! Very useful.
How will you send out the recorded version?
You might have answered this question in the beginning but how do we invite students to the canvas page?
Do we lose the ability to see this chat once we leave this meeting? Thanks for all the training!
Thanks this will help get me started!
Doc did open. thanks
Thank you! May still have questions but will take some time to process and maybe re-watch the recorded presentation or reach out for help.
Opened for me.
That’s nice. Thank You!
Can students print Word or PDF documents that have been uploaded to a module? How?
do you have text to speach by chance
In the rich content box how many minutes does the system allow to create a video mini lesson?
Thank you so much!
The video mini lessons would be in Canvas. Thanks for the over right info. with district approval.
Thanks!! This was very informative!!
