Hello everyone! Hi Shannon.
Yes, please! I have not done it before.
Michael@42lines.net is my email, please contact me whenever you need support or have any needs for training with Harmonize and Canvas.
oh that’s awesome!
All of the features in Harmonize are featured here on our "Features page" (I used the word feature a lot!) https://harmonize.42lines.net/harmonize-features
And here is a page specifically about notifications in Harmonize - https://blog.42lines.net/support/notification-settings-activity
awesome! thanks Michael.
Do you have to use Google Doc to use Harmonize App?
can current canvas discussions be transferred to Harmonize?
Not at all. Google Doc links can be added, but they're not required.
To "transfer" the discussions you have in Canvas Discussions to harmonize you would simply copy and paste the text prompt from Canvas to Harmonize.
Also, I probably missed it, but is there a search option in the canvas course to look for specific harmonize discussions?
I just tried it in my one of my sandboxes and I was able to add a harmonize assignment
Harmonize was also available in navigation
in my sandbox*
yes, I believe Adriana added it in the navigation
Does Harmonize have a feature where students can make/upload videos?
But, what if it says, the page is disable?
Yes it is available and already installed. I know we have limited number of license
@Emily Larin yes, that is one of the things Michael will show us today! :)
what is harmonize chat?? I see harmonize discussion and harmonize chat.
Chat is different - it is a feature that is being rolled out soon
Hi everyone, here is a sign in sheet (I always forget this part)! Please sign in at your convenience:
can you search within the harmonize discussion?
I see it..nevermind
@Selene yes, the search feature is embedded in the discussion board
This is so cool. Going back to the search feature, can you search harmonize discussions within your canvas course?
@Selene can I ask for an example? I have used the search to search for students.
@Shannon, how was student response when they first encountered Harmonize discussion? did you do anything to help students familiarize with Harmonize?
so when you are commenting you cannot see the annotations of the student?
what does it look like in speedgrade?
@Carly, very important to start the semester with a non-academic assignment that allows exploration of the tool and its features. Clear and specific expectations and guidelines are important, embedded within each assignment.
Shannon, can you find topics in engineering in the search features?
The speedgrader feature makes it super easy to grade! The feedback is the part that takes me longer.
yes thank you!
Can you export a Harmonize Discussion Template from Commons?
so the key here is to have students add a video from their phone?
@Hannah yes, that's the best way, to use the phone or iPad then upload that video, rather than using the video recording tool in Harmonize
Does the auto-captioning do a good job of technical/science words? Can you edit it?
Can the Harmonize discussion be initiated in Canvas groups?
@Hannah yes, you can designate groups and create Harmonize assignments that are visible only to group members
For the Harmonize cloud, does it store the videos all students record/upload? Or only the videos the instructor records/uploads?
Can students start Harmonize discussions in groups?
(like they can start their own Canvas discussions in Canvas groups)
@Hannah They can start their own discussions in groups?! Just when I think I'm starting to get the hang of this...
They can! :)
They can make announcements as well
and start their own conferences through big blue button
as long as they are working in their assigned Canvas group
In case anyone needs to leave... here is a survey, we appreciate your feedback on this workshop!
Thank you Shannon and Michael! I'm excited to start trying this tool out!
Thank you all - I can stay behind for some Q&A if it is helpful
Carol Hutte (she, her, hers)
Thank you Shannon!
Thanks for exposing me to a new tool to learn and use!
Cognitive overload. I'm lurking to learn from others' questions!
Thank you for all of the information! I’m planning to use this soon.
I use Harmonize in gen ed bio too Sarah, if you want some ideas/suggestions
I initially used it for introductions - they could choose written or video or uploading a photo
