TL;DR

The Canvas Community is the quickest and best way to find answers to Canvas questions.

Canvas Support is a great resource to reach out to if you are having an issue with Canvas or have any “how to” questions. In any case, check the Community first - this is usually the quickest way to find an answer without having to reach out to Support (Googling “Canvas” + “thing you’re trying to accomplish” works well, too).

Your CSM is great to talk to about strategic conversations - “why” and “what” questions (and to chat about new or upcoming Canvas features if it’s not clear how they might be used at your institution).

We have a handy table at the end of this article outlining when to use the Community or when to reach out to Support or your CSM.

The end of semester exam is almost a rite of passage at many universities. However, COVID meant it was not tenable to have hundreds of students crammed into exam halls. 

In this webinar, we reflect on the first half of this year, with a specific focus on end of semester assessments.

Welcome and Questions:

  • General discussion around how organisations are going with Canvas development and adoption at present.
  • Looking to extend the network of orgnaisations within the User Group
  • Based on feedback we will hold the User Group meetings on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 1 pm AEST

Today's Focus - Course/Content engagement & Data / Analytics (Intro):

  • Engagement ideas and strategies
  • “Show and Tell” of engagement strategies (via Padlet and Canvas)
  • Introduction to Data / Analytics used in Canvas

Discussion / Show & Tell:

  • Refer to recording and brainstorming found on the Padlet here
  • Challenges
    • How do we get people online and willing / wanting to be in Canvas with competing interests and communication mediums (i.e. facebook groups, whatsapp, linked in etc)
    • Engagement rates - mandated courses vs optional
    • Channeling people to share / discuss on a central medium


Next Session - Topic Prep

  • The question - We can create engaging courses but how do we get people “engaged” to login / sign-up etc? Mandatory courses have an obvious “driver” - compliance. However with courses that can’t be or aren’t mandatory where do they fit and what are the strategies for channeling discussion and focus to the engaging course design you have on Canvas?
  • Analytics
    • What are you using for analytics (New Analytics, Canvas Data, other)
    • What are you measuring?
    • What trends do you see?

Again we would like to take a little “show and tell” approach, if you can come prepared with some sample / dummy data or visuals that you can provide insight to, that would be terrific!

As mentioned before - each of you have valuable ideas to share, fellow members may find the one piece of gold they've been looking for!

Content. It’s as unique as you and ultimately empowers learners to become the best they can be. You invest time in its design, it’s resourcefulness and engagement through tools for unparalleled user experience.

The most frequent questions we've fielded are:

  • What happens when we want to collaborate/share resources with others?
  • How do we give courses a standardised look and feel for rollout phase?
  • How do we Roll-over Canvas content for new teaching semesters or school year?

Let us show you how you can give yourself back the time you put in - plus much, much more.

In this month's webinar, @constance_khoo and @IanStory  (APAC Learning Consultants) will:

  • Deep dive into the Canvas content management tools available for admins and teachers
  • Provide context to these tools and typical scenarios for their use
  • We’ll then get into Canvas and show you these tools in action.

This is a must for anyone who is investigating a robust content management strategy across their school, university or institution.

 

Watch.

Discussion / Show & Tell - 

Catholic Education Office - Tasmania -  Marion Weeks
  • Currently in the middle of the journey of creating Course Templates
  • They have created simple templates that has two pages 
    • Modules Over Page 
      • This is used for every single Module
    • Learning page templates
      • This is used for every single learning page
  • Once the team have developed the pages Marion and Ruth will QA and make improvements where applicable
WA Leadership Institute - David Turk
  • Have been using Canvas for a year but have jumped from 1000 users to 52000~ users
    • Due to this jump in size, they need to make sure the structures implemented are scalable. 
  • Based on the template of the department intranet for familiarity 
    • The sizing of the boxes was based on the growth with Canvas course
    • Added some JS to tile to be locked until a certain date
  • Something that David is working on is a Collab box to chunk up the content
    • This creates consistency

Every day, more and more schools and organisations are closing their doors to help contain the spread of COVID-19. As Canvas APAC Learning Consultants, our current challenge is to adapt specifically-designed “onsite trainings” that rely on hands-on activities and face-to-face interactions into full-day remote sessions. 

We’ve made a few key changes to the way we design and deliver remote training to ensure participation and engagement. By sharing our experiences below, we hope to encourage you to find creative ways to keep engaging your students in the online learning space during this time of continual change.

1.Make the most of local Canvas Champions! 

Whether during the scoping call or by using a survey on Canvas, seek out the experienced, advanced and/or enthusiastic Canvas users at your institution/organisation and ask them to help. They can  work the room during the training to give advice, answer questions, and offer additional support for less experienced users. Don’t forget to shower them with appreciation and swag for thanks, as this gives the Champions confidence to assist and empower other users in the future. This works especially well for clients with large cohorts of participants.

2. Use Discussions in Canvas Courses

Canvas has best practice course considerations that make teaching and learning easier. In remote training sessions, this is no exception. Discussions are a great way to capture how your participants are going with any activities you’ve assigned them. 

Create discussion forums for participants to insert screenshots of their work as posts or replies in the discussion. Spend a few minutes ensuring everyone knows how to screenshot and show them how to insert them into discussion responses. Then create a new module for the training (preferably at the top for ease of access for participants) and discussion line items for each activity. 

Example of using discussions and screenshots for remote training

As a trainer, you can keep the discussion open and refresh your screen to view recent participant contributions. The discussion then becomes a platform to showcase work as well as give meaningful feedback on tasks and/ or what they could do differently. Furthermore, it keeps them accountable for completing the training in real time when there isn’t onsite “supervision”. 

We have found this works well for remote training where both the trainer and participants are remote, as it creates a sense of inclusion and sharing.

3. Utilise a rich mixture of resources

Just as the Canvas Rich Content Editor enables teaching through a diverse range of functions,  such as uploading files and inserting media, we are using an array of resources in our remote full-day training sessions. For example, for a recent South East Asian client, we utilised training recordings, self-paced activity slides, and live guided training and Q&A sessions. This combination of synchronous and asynchronous options allows flexibility for any organisation based on need and available resources.  

4. Bring in online tools that you already use

A lot of what we do face-to-face in our training sessions involves utilising online tools that can also be applied in an online context. 

For example, we’ve used Slido (a polling tool) during presentations to large groups to increase audience participation and interaction. If your online tools have embed codes available, you can add them directly into Canvas by flipping the Rich Content Editor into the HTML Editor. If you’re not comfortable with embedding HTML, you can also head to a web browser to use them outside of Canvas and simply flip browser windows during your screen share. 

Keeping the agenda on schedule can be a challenge, especially if your audience loves a good break. In face-to-face training sessions, we often pull up a separate browser window and simply Google “10 min timer,” expand the timer window and leave it open so everyone is clear when the session starts again. This could work really well in the remote context as well, so you can still have your cup of coffee (or tea) without feeling guilty or losing track of your agenda. 

5. Gain familiarity with video conferencing tools

We use video conferencing  to deliver and record our client training sessions, mainly focusing on the screen sharing and chat functions to connect with our audience. To take it to the next level, we even reached out to our training colleagues in EMEA who also work remotely with clients. Here are some of their suggestions (that we plan to implement ourselves, as well):

  • Encourage everyone to sign in separately so they can contribute to the Chat space individually. If possible, have a Chat moderator to join the meeting to manage questions during periods when you are focused on lecture or demonstration.

  • Equip your audience with your video conferencing tools. Allow them to share their screen so you can see their work, use the breakout rooms for small group discussions, or include polls to assess understanding or to encourage active participation. It is also good practice to provide some time at the beginning to explain to your audience how you plan to use the video conferencing tools so they can effectively participate.

About this Event

The use of video is transforming teaching and learning by encouraging learners to digest content at their own pace and explore content more deeply during class time. Canvas Studio is a modern video platform that allows instructors and students to actively collaborate through video media. Studio makes it easy for staff to create engaging video and for students to participate in dynamic conversations and assessments as they view the video independently. It provides a platform for students (who might otherwise be passive and non-participatory in class) to interact and participate. In this short webinar, Yew Eng Ng (Instructure Solutions Engineer) will look at how our tool Canvas Studio can:

  • Enhance the use of video in teaching and learning through collaboration and interactivity
  • Design and deliver assessments that are embedded directly in the video instruction
  • Measure impact with actionable insights and useful analytics
  • Seamlessly integrate with your Canvas learning experience

Student Engagement With Canvas


Student engagement is one of the key indicators for student success in their learning journey. Engagement strategies can include things like reciprocal teaching; feedback; teacher/student self-verbalisation; meta-cognition; goals; challenging; frequent checks on effects of teaching; acceleration; and mastery learning.

At Instructure we believe that good technology helps teachers to create and execute learning activities that promote or reinforce student engagement, either in supporting what is already happening in the face-to-face classroom or by creating unique learning experiences in Canvas.

In these webinars (yep, free upsell) we will discuss teaching strategies that foster or create student engagement and the Canvas tools that can be used to make it easy for teachers to get started today.

Session 2:


• Design and building courses for increased student engagement and success rates.
• Leveraging off Canvas tools such as Automated Feedback, Selective Release, Mastery Paths, Class Announcements, Calendar events and more.
• We will focus on the tools supporting RTO leaders and any other teachers/instructors looking to automate and simplify student connections.

Register for these Webinars Here

Session 1 - Recording Available Here


• Building student engagement and empowerment through the use of Canvas tools like SpeedGrader, Video and Audio interaction, Complete To-Do lists, Modules structure and Mastery Paths.
• This webinar is tailored towards teachers/instructors looking to extend classroom connections to the digital learning space.
• Whilst this topic towards industry roles such as K-12 teachers and RTO leaders, we do encourage all to attend.

You’ve had a great start to the day. Woke up on time, got in a bit of “you time”, traffic is non-existent (Winning). This Wednesday has the trademarks of best ever… UNTIL you open your inbox and see that a few teachers have called in sick. Fundamentally you can fill the void but what is the best way to do this in Canvas?

To help mitigate the impact of this unfortunate event, it’s important to factor in these three questions when deciding on your strategy:

  • TIME "What is the likely duration of the teacher's absence?"
  • CONTROL "What is the school’s acceptable permission level for casual teachers and their involvement in another's teachers course?"
  • SET UP "How long will it take to set the casual teacher up in Canvas?"

The answers to your question above will guide your chosen strategy.

Scenario 1

  • TIME - The teacher is taking over classes for an extended period of time.
  • CONTROL - We want to record the teachers involvement and provide them full course access.
  • SET UP - High to Moderate.

The strategy for you: Assign Course Roles

Enrol the casual teacher as a “Teacher” or “TA” in the course(s) they will be covering. Steps are

  1. Create a user account for the casual teacher and
  2. Enrol the user into the course(s) and/or section(s) as required.

If you only want to allow the casual teacher to perform certain tasks only, try creating a new role and adjusting their permissions before enrolling the teacher into the course

Scenario 2

  • TIME - Casual teachers are taking over classes for a short period of time.
  • CONTROL - The teacher will need to jump into a number of different courses but wont be changing anything within the course.
  • SET UP - High to Moderate

The strategy for you: Create Custom Admin Permissions

Based on the sub account structure used within your instance, you could set up a watered down Admin role for the casual teacher to use. This would allow the casual teacher to jump into any courses within the sub-account with relative ease. Often the permissions of this admin role are little more than read-only access to course content and participation in course discussions. Steps include:

  1. Create a user account for the casual teacher and then
  2. Create an Account Level role with specific permissions
  3. Add the user account to the Admin Role you created at the specific account level. You can simply repeat the process over multiple sub-accounts based on the role or set them up with the role at the root account so that they can jump into any sub-account and therefore, any course.

Scenario 3

  • TIME - The teachers are taking over classes for a short period of time.
  • CONTROL - They just need access
  • SET UP - Short.

The strategy for you: Create Generic Users

At an absolute minimum, we recommend creating user accounts that are for temporary/ casual teachers. Generally, this is not used as commonly as options 1 and 2 due to the usernames not reflecting the names of the casual teachers interacting with the students in the course. However, theoretically, you can set up a generic user account and use options 1 and 2 in conjunction with this. Steps include:

  1. Create a user account for the casual teacher profile
  2. Under the Users “login information”, create a unique login for each casual teacher (ensure that the correct authentication method is also applied)

Final Tips
The time taken to set up each preference can be minimised by the use of CSV Uploads, API Calls and SIS Automation (where possible). You could also use a combination of option 1 and 2 for casual teachers depending on your requirements, but either way, your chosen strategy should be recorded and documented for other admins to execute (who knows, you could be needing a replacement Smiley Wink).
Regardless of the option(s) you choose, when the casual teacher is no longer required, we recommend concluding the user from the course or removing the required account role to limit possible interactions outside the current intended interaction level of that user.

When the SCORM LTI tool used in Canvas was built, the focus was on using SCORM packages for assessment with the marks in the SCORM assessment being passed back to the Canvas gradebook. However, there are lots of instances where SCORM packages are created just for the purpose of showing content to students and not for assessment (or for more formative work where grades aren't necessary to be recorded in Canvas).

 

Where SCORM is content only, not an assessment, using the LTI tool results in a column being created in the gradebook, even if you update the assignment to be an ungraded assignment (it is still an assignment). The New gradebook can help with this as you can put those in an assignment group with a 0% weighting and then filter your gradebook by assignment group to reduce the clutter. However, this is still not ideal as the content is not an actual assignment.

 

There is another way!

 

You can embed the content itself directly as a module item in your course. Here's how you go about doing this:

 

1. You need to make sure you export your SCORM package in HTML5 format from your SCORM authoring tool. This will produce a ZIP file that contains your SCORM package.

 

2. Create a folder in your course Files and upload the zip file into that folder by selecting "Expand it"

 

Create a folder in the course Files for your SCORM package

 

Click on "Expand it"

 

3. Add a module item by pressing the "+" symbol for that module and select "File" as the item type

 

Add a module item

Select "File" as the item type

4. Find the .htm or .html file in the folder you created in step 2 - in my case it was called start_here.htm

 

Select the HTML file from the SCORM package folder you created

5. I like to then edit the module item name so that it's not just the name of the HTML file

 

Edit the module item name

 

Item name edit screen

 

You now have a SCORM item in your module sequence and not in your gradebook!

 

SCORM content in a module

 

I should mention that my colleague, Amelia Hayson, created a great guide on embedding SCORM content into a page. There's a little more involved to do that, but that is also possible. I like adding it as a module item as it means that it is not surrounded by other content and makes it easier to have it as a separate chunk of content so as to avoid the "scroll of death".

 

Also, another colleague, Daniel Gilogley, deserves a big thanks for his massive contribution to the genesis of this article. He's great!

 

Lastly, I can't finish this without mentioning that SCORM is an older technology and that it is a standard that has not been updated for over a decade. If you have the opportunity to use other tools for creating content, I'd recommend doing so. H5P is a standards based content creation tool that a lot of Canvas users are enjoying using creating engaging, responsive content. I'd recommend checking it out as a starting point.

 

Have fun!

Compliance.

A word revered by a few but misinterpreted by more. Regardless of where you place yourself, it’s important to ensure that you are able to meet your requirements if an audit should come your way.

In this months webinar we have called in the Support of Toby Jones, Commercial Director of Learning Vault to discuss:

  • Tackling Compliance in blended learning,
  • Key areas for Audit,
  • Things businesses forget when they go digital,
  • Showcase 3 simple areas in which Canvas can help you become more compliant.

Being a previous RTO and now content developers for the RTO/VET space, Learning Vault will draw on its experiences being on both sides of this process and will share their knowledge with you in this 30 minute session.

This will take place on March 7th at 3:30pm AEDT. To reserve your spot, click on the link below.

CanvasLive Sessions

In November's Session, we will be focusing on "The New Gradebook - Get More Out Of Your Results".  

At the moment, Canvas has two concurrent grade books available for use by your organisation.  The New Gradebook is a beta feature that allows instructors to view an improved version of the Gradebook. This feature makes grading more flexible and intuitive and elevates the Gradebook user experience. Some of you will already be using the New Gradebook, and some of you will be on the Current Gradebook, which will be replaced by the New Gradebook in future (don't worry - you'll get plenty of notice!)

No matter which version you're using, it can be handy to know what the functions are in the New Gradebook and how to best use it to make grading more efficient.

We will be covering:

  • Filter functionality, allowing you to limit what you see in the grade book
  • Sorting assignments and students
  • Assignment statuses, such as Late, Missing and Excused Setting up late policies, allowing you to penalise students automatically
  • Entering grades into the grade book and more!

The session will be run by our Training and Engagement Consultant for APAC, Debbie Thompson, and chaired by CSMs Ryo Sakai and Adam Ware.

FAQs

Who can I bring the event?
We're open to collaboration and encourage you to invite your faculty along to this session.
