2020 DECO Retreat Zoom Meeting for June 18th - Shared screen with speaker view
Who can see your viewing activity?
Boo Hoo! But Thank you for everything you’ve done!!!
is it just me or is there no audio?
Ingrid Greenberg, SDCE
I hear the speaker.
Ingrid Greenberg, SDCE
The audio works for me.
thanks-- got it going
We are happy to pose questions from all of you, too!
Just a reminder that everyone can choose to be in Speaker view or Gallery view. There will be a button somewhere on your screen (depending on your device) to switch between the two.
Did all the schools use their existing staff or did anyone hire additional help?
How much of IT time did it require?
Depends on phase and SIS
Phase 1 - Banner - around 10 hours
@Fred. Thank you. What about the Phase 2 to this point?
Phase 2 - We are estimating it will be a max of 100 hours. So far, @25 hours and we are about a quarter done.
@Fred. Would it be okay if I was to give your name our our IT people to discuss Phase 2 challenges?
Sure - firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you to all our esteemed and informative panelists! You were awesome!
Thank you all so much!
I think it was just an open mic
Thank you to Jory, Flora and the CVC-OEI team.
Thank you, Fred!
My concern with new RCE is it makes some features (like Studio!) two clicks away … is this at all customizable?
Bulk edit is huge. Great new feature!
Bulk Assignment editing - online ‘life’ changer and make faculty happy!
WHAT? YES! Course-level notifications!
Haha. I celebrated that too, Jim!
Yes -- students will be VERY happy to be able to have that course level notification control
This is huge, really. Students that muted all notifications due to one annoying course will no longer have to do that
+1 for course-specific notifications!
Any chance the next step in granular notifications is to let us customize which discussion threads we want to subscribe to (vs. entire discussion)?
@Tracy, great ask!
So good to hear that LTIs can be visible at the top level of the RCE upon deployment.
Will the new RCE ever have a sticky menu bar so it doesn’t scroll off screen?
+1 @ Moses!
Where would one acmes the course level notification
Can the name for the HTML editor be clearer? We have many faculty/staff/students who will not recognize RCE isn't obvious -- people have to know symbol </> or at least put it back in the same place? At the OTC many participants had no idea
Thank you! Good to know!
It looks like the embed code
It moved from upper right to bottom and is just a code
It used to toggle between RTE and HTML
yea, that is odd - agree with Dan that it looks more like embedd
Is there a date for Canvas to turn off the old editor?
and the accessibility checker has also moved to the bottom :(
That was pushed back from this summer, correct?
(The RCE cutover date)
And could you please go over the implementation dates for the other Canvas changes as well, like the bulk date editing?
(I’m fine with the delay :-))
It can be enabled at the course level by faculty
Thank you for the delay --With all the other info loading during Covid it would have been hard
Great! Thank you.
Do we know how many CCCs have already been using Studio? (We have for a year and really really like it)
Does Studio allow for captions?
Jim - I heard 18 but I don’t have a list.
Great auto-captioning, easy fix-up editing, @Suzanne
Does anyone know the differences between Canvas Studio and PlayPosit?
Studio is a full video management tool
You can create videos in Canvas Studio whereas PlayPosit is a video overlay
Studio has embedded quizzing but way more simplistic than PlayPosit
Los Rios is using it
Thanks @Jim - that's great!
Why would using it at the sub-account be a struggle?
Does Studio add captions?
Any way to bring in videos from 3C Media?
Studio has auto captions that can be edited
Do the videos that are loaded into Studio and used in a course "count" against the file storage limit for a course
@Suzanne it’s stunningly good honestly. In my opinion better punctuation, capitalization, and breaking of captions than youtube
For those of us who already have Canvas but subscription ends June 30, will there be any interruption in our use of Studio? Instructure A&R folks were not familiar with the CVC agreement when I spke with them today.
Can studio be used to replace the video record feature in the RCE?
What happens to all the videos when the contract is up after the year?
@Christy no, Studio video storage is separate from Canvas storage limits
Sometimes we are unable to reach agreement from all colleges in a district and that excludes faculty who see the tool fitting into their learning objectives.
Screen capture: fantastic!
@Wendy - right?
@Suzanne yes, it’s not actually a replacement, just an option
Can it be implemented to select instructors? So as not to overload everybody.
Jory said the contract with Canvas Studio is for 2 years.
@Jodie, the biggest issue we have had using in our sub account is that it takes extra steps to get to the Make A Quiz Feature, it also takes extra clicks for students to use to record their videos
@Jon it’s easy to ignore if people aren’t interested
@Jim, Thank you
Love Studio. Easy to use, but has amazing editing features if you want to put in more time.
Is there a good video about Studio?
We have been using Studio at Sierra for the last month and it has been a game changer! The faculty are hooked!
@Christy Thank you
@Jim, Some profs get confused easily
Studio has been so helpful at Ventura. So many faculty just started using it without needing instructions or training.
For those who have used screencast-o-matic, it is actually the exact interface for screen casting that Studio uses
Can someone ballpark what the cost is per FTES? If we wanted to plan for legacy adoption, it would be helpful
Jodie, for us it was around $1.70
Super super good deal
For all that you get
Ingrid Greenberg, SDCE
@Jim, yes, it looks like ScreenCastomatic
Studio Demo: https://jthompson.instructuremedia.com/embed/baffe852-4b49-4866-b183-bb492429ba92
@Jodie/Jim: We have pre-negotiated a price for continuation of studio. (Spoiler, Jim — it’s less than the rate you just mentioned). :)
Jory, awesome. It was already well worth it.
1.70 per FTES Jim? And it must be adopted at the institution level? If I could trade, it sounds like Studio would serve more students than Turnitin. (See Tweet :))
It serves both students and faculty incredibly wel;\
Having Studio made a huge difference for us as we transitioned during COVID
Sounds really positive!!
@Jodie - Per the new Instructure Agreement, after the 2 years provided to colleges, a college may renew its own Canvas Studio subscription and the Canvas Studio subscription fee for such a renewal shall be $1.30 per FTES

Do faculty - especially PT - have the ability to move videos from campus to campus?
How does Studio integrate with DECT-grant captioning services like AST?
Studio can be great for CTE and demonstration courses
One of the points for Playposit is how it integrates with 3CMedia. Where does this fit?
@Mary, we have faculty at multiple colleges and the Share option proved to be within the institution only. That works between colleges within our district, but not beyond.
@Mary. You can download videos and upload them elsewhere. You can also create a public link for your video
Are the quiz questions in Studio and Playposit accessible?
@Jodie, GoReact is popular with ASL for this kind of video conversation.
we used to use https://voicethread.com/ but it was so expensive and not a lot of use.
One thing to keep in mind is to turn off comments in crosslisted courses
Yes, GoReact is insane pricing--around $60,000! We are using for free right now.
@Tracy, our faculty have been requesting GoReact too, specifically for our ASL and communication classes
Our Dance and Music departments are looking at GoReact. I don’t know much about it personally
@Gema. It’s interesting to think about whether Studio can replace VoiceThread.
@Tracy. Yes. We have considered them a couple of times. However, I am very cautious about vendors who offer "free for now". Especially those that may pull that free service mid year (Dec)
Studio Accessibility: https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-14161-accessibility-within-studio
@Bob. Will this contract be included on the Foundation/CO archive?
I think the only external videos you can “pull in” to Studio are YouTube
@Gema: voicethread has a long delay on captions & doesn't caption if users (like the students) don't have a pay acct.
@Jodie, we are hoping they will be ready to negotiate, but we'll see. I'll let you know what happens.
Yes, our comm faculty love having their students using Studio …
We have VoiceThread connected to our DECT-grant captioning company--AST. It is literally one click to request captions, and they are pushed right into the comment in 2-3 days. It's incredible.
Thanks @ A Gum, yes and then you are playing basically for your own phone line. just too expensive. But the concepts is a good one.
@Tracy. We currently use VT now, but I’m wondering if Studio will have a tighter integration for the students. Plus, there is cost to consider.
@Tracy They will department level pricing rather than forcing the entire institution. Companies like Protorio and Turnitin are not student-centered, they are fiscally greedy. (In my seasoned professional opinion)
@Brett, this is good aim for studio to have
Yes, thank you Zach and Kelly!
Any future updates for Mobile Canvas? Hard to see as a student and to do Peer Reviews
Thanks for the feedback on Studio. Because of our successful implementation and relationship with Canvas (Instructure), CVC-OEI was able to get it incorporated into the renewed agreement. We appreciate our partners with Canvas and how beneficial having 114 CCCs on a single system can bring about incredible savings!
Thank you, Jory! This is really exciting.
Thank you, Jory!
@Jory - thank you so much!
Will the CVC-OEI do any trainings on Studio?
But that's just autocaptions.
Scott, there will be some training provided as part of onboarding. More details to come next week in an announcement.
So you can not edit the captions?
Is it easy to edit/correct those little errors?
easy to edit captions
Love that Students can edit their captions (good life skill training!!)
Yes Audrey! And great teaching accessibility awareness!
Are you compensating faculty mentors? How about faculty who sign up?
Great question, Ingrid!
We are having the same issue at Diablo Valley College—we have training leads matched with instructors who need help…We just had a meeting with Calendly
Calendly allows you to set up team scheduling
We just do a virtual handshake and let them set up meetings.
Unfortunately our college is taking forever to work out an MOU for paying for mentors, otherwise we’d have the same question I think
Simple is often best! :)
We created faculty mentor “office hours” via zoom and faculty can show up as needed It is launched through our POD calendar.
It’s like 200.00 bucks a month for 20 users
The 20 users are the team plan (so your mentors/training leads)…not the actual users
How do you incentivize mentees?
Tracy, you’re the best
Hurray Tracy 🌟
Regarding the “sticky” New RCE issue, just gonna leave this here: https://community.canvaslms.com/ideas/15868-static-toolbar-for-new-rich-content-editor
For spring, we used the google sheet and the Canvas Calendar. We also have a Canvas group for faculty and they connect by scheduling appointments using Conferzoom in the group.
It’s for voting! Go vote
Hello Everyone! With our increased use of technology and platforms and preparing to go live here are a couple resources I put together to support faculty
