Canvas Klatch (August 25): "Roasting the Beans" 

When

Friday, August 25, 2017 at https://cccconfernow.zoom.us/j/736983384

Starts at 3:00 PM · Ends at 4:00 PM, MDT (America/Denver)

Description

The Canvas Klatch is an online office hour for the course Introduction to Teaching with Canvas. Course participants are mostly faculty from California's community colleges. Canvas is the learning management system for the Online Education Initiative.

 

Agenda (or Objectives)

This is an office hour, so whoever attends directs the conversation. Previous sessions have covered how to complete course assignments and therefore serve as overviews of how to use various tools in Canvas. This session is scheduled during the first week of a four-week class, so it's like we're roasting the beans.

InstructureCon 0017 Product Announcements

 

 

InstructureCon 0017 saw an exciting line up of Product announcements, with some features ready for release, and others preparing for release in the near future. We thought it might be difficult to remember every exciting announcement, so we created this summary and resource post for you. Use the table of contents below to quickly navigate.

 

InstCon0017 Product Announcements 

 

"There has been a lot of discussion about the need to Adjust all assignment and quiz dates on a single page. I created a Google Spreadsheet to attempt to address this feature request, but the announcement and instructions got lost among the almost 100 comments. This document is an attempt to pull the relevant information into one location so it's easier to find." - James Jones

Canvas Production Release Notes (2017-07-15) 

 

In this production release (July 15), assignments and pages can be duplicated in Canvas courses, and new courses default to the Modules Course Home Page layout.

And the Rich Content Editor sidebar enhancements that exist in Pages and the Syllabus display in all feature areas of Canvas, including Quizzes.

 

For institutions using the new Canvas SIS integration settings, the Assignments page includes the option to disable sync for all assignments, the Calendar assignments window includes a checkbox for SIS syncing, and the SIS Import page includes an option to download the last batch of errors and warnings.

 

In the content export pages, all users will see text clarification about the download expiration. The base font size in Canvas has been increased, and the icons have been updated with a new Instructure-owned icon library.

Canvas Release: Blueprint Courses (2017-06-24) 

 

Blueprint Courses makes it easy for administrators or designers to deploy, update, and maintain course design templates or components across any number of courses or instructors. For an individual institution, Blueprint Courses allows Canvas admins to create content and learning objects, lock specific settings or content items, and push updates to all associated courses through course syncing.

 

Any items that are not locked can be managed individually by a course instructor. Content that can be managed by an instructor is not overwritten when the Blueprint Course is synced to associated courses, and new content created in any associated course is also not affected.

Accessing Your Canvas Data with CanvasDataViewer

 

Description
CanvasDataViewer is used to automatically download Canvas Data files into a SQL Server database where you can query and analyze the information. In this webinar you can get a guided tour of CanvasDataViewer and find what it takes to set it up and host it.

Session Date & Time

Tuesday, July 18, 2017 at https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/7169898116357309699

Starts at 12:00 PM · Ends at 1:00 PM, MDT (America/Denver)

 

Who will find it useful?

We think the most likely use case will be campuses that want to evaluate the Canvas Data product as a source of information for teachers and program managers. When schools implement a long-term Canvas Data program they will most likely want to purchase a license for a hosted data repository like Amazon Redshift that can automatically accept Canvas Data. CanvasDataViewer may be suitable for long-term use--we have built the system to download the latest data schema from Canvas and built the database table to suit.

Canvas Production Release Notes (2017-06-24) 

In this production release (June 24), admins and designers can create and maintain course design templates for an entire institution. The Box previewer and Crocodoc annotation tools throughout Canvas have been replaced with Canvas DocViewer, which provides improved performance for a variety of document and image types. For institutions using custom JavaScript, accordion widgets are no longer supported as a jQueryUI component. For institutions using student context cards, student group leader names in a group set display context card details. Other small changes have been made to the Rich Content Editor content selector and the Course Settings sidebar buttons.

Production release notes also include fixed bugs.

Beta Release Notes (2017-07-03) Collaborative Chat

Description
With each Beta Release Notes, we test and question the changes. We also determine whether or not teachers need to be trained on updates. Since so many people do this already (many times on their own), why not share your notes and join a conversation? We'll work asynchronously and synchronously in the Canvas Chatrooms!

Session Date & Time

Friday, July 7, 2017 at https://canvaslive.ryver.com/index.html#forums/1064984

Starts at 12:30 PM · Ends at 1:15 PM, MDT (America/Denver)

 

Agenda

We'll take a detailed look at all of the updates in the 2017-07-03 Beta Release Notes. With each update, we'll share our excitement, discuss our concerns, and come up with suggestions to post back to the Community.

  • What excites you about the changes?
  • What doesn't work exactly like described in the Release Notes?
  • What do you wish was different? Are there any new feature ideas that could be shared with others?
  • How do you plan to roll-out some of the updates to your staff or students?

 

From the point of publication on Wednesday, July 5th through Friday, July 7th, the chatroom will be open and on-going. On Friday, July 7th, let's meet synchronously for 45-minutes at 12:30pm MST (if a Community Member from Europe or Australia would like to "host" another session also, let Kristin know!) If you can make the synchronous chat, awesome! The more the merrier, but don't feel you are required to attend a synchronous chat in order to participate in the New Features & Updates Forum!

Episode 12 is a 2 minute video about Offline Content via Module Export.  This tool can be enabled by your Customer Success Manager, it will appear in all courses in your Canvas instance but can be disabled for courses in the settings area of the Courses that would not like it enabled.  It is a great tool to enable if you have students at your institution who may have unreliable internet access after class, but would like access to content for studying purposes.
