MiraCosta Online Ed Flex Workshop - Shared screen with speaker view
I didn’t know that! Thanks, James!
Please don’t hesitate to ask questions as this is going, folks. We can answer here in chat or if you want to see something again, that’s fine too - let us know
If you didn't make that your home page, how would students access it, through Pages? Is it possible to put that page in a module?
Candice - it depends on how you set up what students can see and what is hidden from them.
Yes, you can put the page in a module
I will cover that in my part - coming up in a bit
Oh great! Thank you!
So when you make an announcement, it automatically emails a copy of it to the students in that class?
Justin—It should send an email to students, but it depends on their notification settings.
I will go over notifications in my portion
Gotcha, thanks Billy
if they haven’t changed their default settings, it will send an email to the address they have designated on our enrollment system (SURF)
All this is so overwhelming for me, and I’m sure for some others too. It will be a huge help for some of us to have step by step written instructions to follow so that we can start using Canvas and help our students at this critical time. Different people have different learning styles. Some can watch a video and learn; some can’t. If we want this to become our main way of communication with our students, then we need to learn how to use it. Can you guys please come up with short written instruction for each function available on Canvas? You can title each lesson “Canvas for Dummies, Lesson 1, etc!”
no worries :)
Hossein, written instructions exist from Canvas - the Canvas Guides are excellent. I encourage you to check them out at https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-10460
Thanks Jim, I was looking for that just now!
Hosseini, also, you can do some of the one-on-one coaching sessions in the afternoons this week. I think your point is a good one—we are all at different places and need to make a plan that works for each person
There are also very specific links to particular Canvas guides based on what you might be trying to do, in the Taking Classroom Activities Online chart at https://miracosta.instructure.com/courses/19220/pages/a1-dot-3-taking-classroom-activities-online?module_item_id=685432
Then I guess I should leave this meeting and start reading! Thank you all and have a great day. :)
Just set up a couple of modules by chapter for Math and added the files I have made and the assignment. Really easy from what you shared. Thanks.
That’s awesome, Vicky!!
Thanks for sharing, Vicky! This is what we are here for! :)
What is the T in Speedgrader? Is that for typing a response?
Yes, Candice, that allows insertion of a text response
Yeah its the freetext annotation!
The rubrics are very helpful when grading
Hamburger is 3 horizontal lines
Three dots is snowman or kebab menu lol
I find it useful to move “Totals” to the front next to the student’s name.
This can be accomplished by scrolling over “Totals” box and clicking on the 3 dots.
Here’s the link to this page: https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-10624-4212710344
(Student notifications setting guide)
Jim - I call it “button-up (or down) shirt” menu icon.
Haha nice sean
are all students in the email directory
How do the students access conferzoom
If I want students to watch a film in the library collection, how do I put that in assignments, and how do I know they have the capability to watch them? Thanks.
is it recommended to schedule meetings thru canvas or do it directly on confer zoom site? If I do decide to schedule it on Canvas does it automatically schedule it on confer zoom site? Thank you
Thank you for that! Such a simple thing to drag the app up, but I didn't realize I could do that!
In student view when I click confer zoom, it sends an error message.
John, if you use Kanopy for films from the library, you can use the Embed code I explained a little earlier in the video.
Can every student see that?
Genevieve, yes, and it works in reverse - you drag things down or disable if there are menu items you want to hide
Carina, honestly you can go either way.
John, yes if you are asking about ConferZoom on the course menu
Thank you :)
Jim- I am asking about Canopy. Thanks.
John, as long as it is embedded into your page, they should just be able to hit play. If for whatever reason they can’t, it would just prompt them to enter their credentials
Hey y’all I’ve got to jump over to another meeting. I hope this was helpful!
This is not realy the place for this question, but since I'm here, can anyone remind of how we can get a computer/Chromebook to a student who needs one?
Thank you, James!
Thanks. I was worried that it wouldn’t work on Monday. Got it.
Hi, Melissa. Our VP of Student Services is doing a presentation on resources for students at 12pm - immediately following this workshop. I think that question is perfect for that session.
How can you post a pre-recorded Zoom lecture (without students) in Canvas without using the LTI tool?
Melissa, AIS is working on getting tech for faculty - they are saying for now you should submit a request via the Help Desk in the Portal.
Oh sorry Melissa, I see the question was about students
Thanks, Sean. Another question--kind of a silly one. How do I put a picture along with my name into zoom? I did it for my own zoom account, but I'd like to have a picture pop up here, too.
Melissa, also there is info on the student FAQ document about tech for students. See https://docs.google.com/document/d/1RAdlsk66sb3kXjZGEmj-vJq6ZGQUslo1XYTMYnUuxW0/edit#heading=h.lpdeye328ht0
Melissa, you can go to Zoom settings and then choose Virtual Background
If that’s what you mean
Thank you for the time and effort you put into this! Some of it I was familiar with, but I learned a lot too. I really appreciate the knowledge and experience everyone is sharing right now.
Melissa, the Virtual Backgrounds are super cool!
Melissa if you mean just a picture of yourself, that’s what you set in your Zoom profile. You need to make sure you’re logged into Zoom when you access a Zoom meeting in order to have the profile picture show up
This is the schedule
Thanks. That helps. I just clicked in the link from my email and wasn't logged into zoom.
Out instructional technologist, Karen Turpin, just developed a page with all of the workshop offerings for this week - including the recorded workshops
Who should I contact to get the test student login information from?
The Employee Help Desk -
I’ve noticed I have to hit “Save” & “Submit” when I leave comments & rubric grading. Am I correct on this?
Employee Help Desk # is (760) 795-6850
I like this rubric generator. Thanks! Sorry I joined a little late. Diff topic: Did you show how to link Confer Zoom to Canvas already? Sorry if I missed.
Thank you, guys, so much! Roger and out :)
Rosie, see https://tic.miracosta.edu/campus-teaching-technologies/conferzoom/
Ok, will check out Rick's workshop.
Thank you all for your time and info
Thank you again, Jim, Sean & Billy, well done. Expansive & concrete
