Thanks to ekeefe@instructure.com  and Deactivated user as well as the rest of the Canvas Training team for developing wonderful, free resource such as the Be The Hero - New Training Course for Canvas Admins!  for Canvas Admins and Growing with Canvas - New Training Course.  If you have not seen these resources yet, get  your copy in the Canvas Commons.  Check out the helpful guides for the commons here:  Guides: Commons.  

Once you import this resource into a shell, you will receive notifications when this course has been updated.  You can ask questions and get more information about these updates here and choose if you wish to import those updates to your course. 

TIP:  If you customized the Be The Hero course and you import the update, the entire course will be rewritten with that update.  It is best to pull the updated course into a new shell and copy the update to change specifically into your customized course.

Here is a list of updates that have been made in the Be The Hero Course to date:

Quick question.  I stumbled upon this so I made a shell and imported the 'Be the Hero' from the Commons.  I'm now listed as the teacher in the course.  Can I add myself as a student so I can work thru the course or can I work thru it as the teacher?  Thanks so much!!

I had used my separate admin account to create the course and added my student account to the course to take it as a student, but you could always use the Student View function of the course as the teacher. How do I view a course as a test student using Student View?

OK - I'm new to using Canvas, so here goes.  I've been working on this for over an hour and I'm quite frustrated.  Do you have step by step directions as to how to add this into the course?  I've downloaded the zip file and uploaded it to my account in Canvas, but I can't seem to import it into my new course.  I'm tech savvy so it drives me nuts that I can't figure this out on my own.  What am I not doing correctly?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

OK I am able to access this in my own personal account where I am learning the course and that would be as a student.  This is where I accessed the "Growing With Canvas" course and I completed my assignments in my school account.  Maybe this is the proper way to participate?  Oh well, live and learn.

If you're trying to import from Commons into a shell, you first need to make an empty course (shell) in your Canvas account, name it something recognizable like "Canvas Admin Training" or "Be the Hero". Then you would go through Commons to import the course content to that course How do I import and view a Commons resource in Canvas?

I hope that helps!

The problem is that I can’t get into Canvas Commons. I guess I should’ve mentioned that. I downloaded the file from Google Drive.

Check out the newest updates to the Be The Hero course in the table above.  You can either make these changes manually or update the course using the Canvas Commons.  Please remember, if you have customized the course in any way, pulling in an update from the Canvas Commons will not retain those changes.

Hi Janie Ruddy

One problem though. From the directions:

   Replace the video with this updated video: https://vimeo.com/160094948

That vimeo link video does not exist either. Smiley Sad

What's the newest new update for this video link?

Thanks - Shar

For when/if the link expires again, I found it by searching https://vimeo.com/canvaslms/videos

Hi Renee,

Close.. that was the video for Bridge. But I searched like you said in the other post and found: 612 - Account Settings on Vimeo 

Cheers - Shar

Many thanks rcarney@instructure.com‌ and ishar-uw‌.  I apologize for the incorrect link.  The 612 - Account Settings on Vimeo  link is the correct one.  I have updated this in the table above as well.

About the Author
I seemed to take the long, winding path to the education world. Initially, I started with Healthcare Administration and decided I was not satisfied. The business world did not fulfill my inquisitive nature and challenge me professionally. I then went back to school majoring in Middle Grades Science Education. From the moment I started my journey in the education world, I knew that I had found my passion. I spent thirteen wonderful years as a middle grades math and science teacher. All of those years serving in Title I schools. I loved the constant learning and heart of the craft. I grew into team lead, grade level head and eventually Academic Coach. During my time in the classroom, my district adopted Canvas. I immediately saw the potential and dove right into all that Canvas had to offer. I helped train others and give ideas for classroom use. This inspired me to learn more on how to effectively incorporate technology into the classroom to have the most impact on student learning. I went on to earn a Master's degree in Educational Technology. Each day there is something new. A new tool, application or learning theory to keep me hopping and I love it!
