how do I make a "group" or at least add my school to the current group list
Hi CHRISTINE, thanks for the additional information! There are a couple of ways you can do this. If you have rights to add teachers to your course, then you can do this in the People's tab of a course. This would allow them to copy the material into their other courses. This is a good approach if there is collaborative work on the assignments and a relatively small number of individuals. We do run into situations where we want large numbers of individuals enrolled in a course and I work with our IT department to do this.
However, the approach we prefer is to use the Canvas Commons (What is Canvas Commons?). One individual will share the material to the Commons either publicly or to just our institution, and then everyone else can download this into their courses. Here is the Canvas Guide index for all the Commons documents if you are interested, https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-10460-canvas-instructor-guide-table-of-contents#jive_content_id_Commons . Some institutions do not use the Commons. Do you know if you have access to the Commons or if this may be an option?
Hello CHRISTINE. Just for clarification, are you speaking about creating a group within a particular Canvas course, as is described here What are Groups? I am curious as you specifically mention a current group "list".
Thanks for the additional information!
I was wondering if I could form a Group between co-workers to try to make things easier to share. We are building our own classes and teach the same thing to six classes that are the same. I was just trying to figure out an easy way to add assignments to all of them at the same time instead of going into each class and adding the assignments one by one.
I used the common area to share my information.
Glad that will work CHRISTINE. The more we use the Commons, the more I like how it functions for sharing material.
Have a great day!
