Sarah commented how much more useful the Canvas app is than the Blackboard app.
Vera
49:02
Can this calendar be exported to Google Calendar?
Julie Johnson
49:41
Good question! I will ask
Julie Johnson
50:13
You can send your canvas calendar to google calendar through the calendar feed
Vera
50:23
THanks!
Julie Johnson
51:30
question was about notifications. we will be covering it in just a bit :-)
Julie Johnson
57:16
Support is 24/7!
Julie Johnson
57:35
available via phone or chat any time of the day or night to help you :-)
Julie Johnson
01:00:05
Question was about student training. Yes, students will be trained, too!
Julie Johnson
01:00:32
Current question is on whether Turnitin will be available — it isn’t on right now but it will be soon!
Whitney McIntyre Miller
01:01:34
No, we can't hear the questions
Vera
01:01:35
No
Julie Johnson
01:01:52
I am summarizing questions and responses in the chat for everyone :-)
Julie Johnson
01:02:41
Last question was on communication and how we will communicate out new features. A good way to stay in the know is to subscribe to our newsletter if you don’t already! I will be adding everyone who comes to training to the newsletter
Whitney McIntyre Miller
01:03:59
Thanks, Julie!
Julie Johnson
01:04:13

Julie Johnson
01:08:55
question was about app settings and notifications
scott browne
01:09:32
If we choose to use Canvas, will the sytem automatically populate the roster and student emails from the registration process, as we presently do in Blackboard?
Julie Johnson
01:10:28
Question was about what kind of ways students can trigger a notification. That would be discussions or submission comments, if you have that turned on.
Julie Johnson
01:11:48
Items in “course activities” are triggered by the instructor. it would be safe for faculty to turn those notifications off. However if you have a co instructor or GTA you may want to leave those on.
Julie Johnson
01:14:33
the question was about preferred names.
Julie Johnson
01:14:47
We are pulling data from people soft that reflects preferred names in canvas.
Julie Johnson
01:15:22
So far all testing we have done confirms that only preferred names are being pulled into canvas.
Julie Johnson
01:15:37
If you see anything otherwise, please let me know so we can do further testing.
Julie Johnson
01:21:34
Question was about forwarding emails from Canvas to email. Adam will check the setting.
Julie Johnson
01:24:01
question was about profile pictures.
scott browne
01:25:11
Convenience for students: if this spring, students have some classes using blackboard, and one using Canvas,how are we going to make it convenient for students to switch from one to another?
Julie Johnson
01:25:18
We haven’t enabled profile pictures yet. To be determined in the future!
Julie Johnson
01:26:01
Scott, you are right. For the next year students will be in two environments. We will likely have a link in each environment as a shortcut to the other.
Julie Johnson
01:26:19
We are still building all that out. :-)
Julie Johnson
01:26:27
Another “coming soon” :-)
Julie Johnson
01:29:06
Sarah found that in notification preferences, under conversations, conversation message is for all new inbox messages. That way all messages will go to email. This is a default setting for students.
Julie Johnson
01:33:11
The question was about the eyeball with the slash. That means that students cannot see that content. However, it also might mean that there no content in the section.
Julie Johnson
01:35:36
The eyeball feature is brand new so there may still be some kinks to work out. Syllabus is always viewable even if there is no content.
Julie Johnson
01:36:06
However announcements isn’t viewable unless there is content. It’s a bit of an inconsistency ... Adam is going to look into it.
Vera
01:38:50
If I cut and paste syllabus schedule from Word file, will Canvas convert it at list partially into a format which will connect it to calendar?
Julie Johnson
01:39:27
Vera, yes, Sarah just mentioned the cut/paste method you can use to add your syllabus from word.
Vera
01:39:42
Great!
Julie Johnson
01:39:59
I’m not sure what you mean about converting it into a format for the calendar. If you want something in the calendar you would need to add those items as assignments.
Vera
01:40:17
I see. Thanks.
Julie Johnson
01:40:25
Anything with a due date will feed into the calendar.
Julie Johnson
01:41:09
Another option is to embed a document from Google Drive into the rich text editor.
Julie Johnson
01:45:31
the question was about how to find out when new tools are available
Julie Johnson
01:45:44
Read our newsletter and follow our blog :-)
Julie Johnson
01:46:33
5 minutes! play around with your rich content editor and add a few things
scott browne
01:48:08
I am off campus...can hear the trainer, and see what is happening on his screen, but don't have anyting called sandbox on my screen.
Julie Johnson
01:48:50
Scott, did you sign in at the https://canvas.chapman.edu/login/saml address?
Julie Johnson
01:49:40
you will need to sign in at that address in another browser tab
Julie Johnson
01:50:12
When on Zoom some people like to use two devices so you can be in the zoom meeting on one device and then have another device open for exploring canvas.
Julie Johnson
01:52:04
when linking an item will it stay in canvas or will it open another browser window?
Julie Johnson
01:52:18
This is being demoed right now
Julie Johnson
01:52:22
default is “same window”
Julie Johnson
01:53:09
if you want it to open in a separate window you need to change the target. the shortcut is either ctl-k or cmd-k
Julie Johnson
01:54:40
steps to create an inline PDF in the rich content editor:
Julie Johnson
01:55:05
Highlight the link
Julie Johnson
01:55:13
click on link to URL button
Julie Johnson
01:55:19
click auto open the inline preview for this link
Julie Johnson
01:55:21

Julie Johnson
01:57:46
steps to turn on the announcements at top of home
Julie Johnson
01:58:13
course settings>more options>show recent announcements on course home page
Julie Johnson
01:59:25
the template right now is for faculty
Julie Johnson
01:59:35
if you are interested we can add you to see it as an observer
Julie Johnson
01:59:49
if you like it we can give you instructions on how to pull a template into your course.
Julie Johnson
02:00:15
if you want to see the template please email canvas@chapman.edu and ask to see the template
Vera
02:00:25
yes, I would like to receive instructions about templates
Julie Johnson
02:01:00
Vera, please email canvas@chapman.edu so we can send you directions on how to see the template.
Julie Johnson
02:04:22
The discussion is that the template is customizable.
Julie Johnson
02:04:49
if there is a button you prefer to have a different image, or link to a different place, you can change it
Julie Johnson
02:13:40
how do you score a discussion?
Julie Johnson
02:14:53
is there an option for rubrics in discussion? yes
Julie Johnson
02:16:31
Publishing is a very important topic!
Julie Johnson
02:20:29
question was whether you can copy a course.
Julie Johnson
02:20:36
yes!
Julie Johnson
02:21:05
Going forward your support person on Orange for Canvas is myself, Julie Johnson
Julie Johnson
02:21:12
The support person for Rinker campus is Sarah Blake
Julie Johnson
02:23:46
the mobile app may not work for faculty right now because single sign on isn’t enabled yet
Julie Johnson
02:23:56
mobile app should be available in the next week or so.
Julie Johnson
02:25:47
