Hi folks, it looks like Scott the Magnificent has already created us a CanvasHacks public classroom to play in, and enrolled us as teachers.
Any thoughts on structure? I have a similar course that is mostly complete that I am preparing for my faculty that I could upload to provide a bit of structure. It is intended for non-coders, and has the following module structure:
However, I am not a pushy sort, so whatever anybody else wants, I am more than happy to go along with. I can always upload stuff a piece at a time and fit it where I can.
My "lessons" are all one page, and include:
Let me know what your think!
Oh yah, and I also have a hokey Home page, because that's just the kind of guy I am:)
Solved! Go to Solution.
Great idea, Kelley.
I created a course shell in resources.instructure.com. It looks like well over 60 people have already requested either student or teacher level access. Those of you with teacher level access, feel free to invite your friends. Anyone else interested, please comment to that effect. @kmeeusen and the super helpful @bowmanr have been great about going in and inviting folks.
OK, I just went through and invited everyone who commented. I wasn't sure who did and who didn't have an invite already (aka I am lazy). Apologies if any of you received invite spam.
I wonder if the CanvasHacks should have a section on integrating external apps? We have been adding live video chat to course navigation using the Redirect App and tools such as appear.in. This approach works great for bringing a variety of add-ons into Canvas. Demo added to CanvasHacks. Our faculty love this.
Can you guys please re-add me as Teacher under this email address (I need to use a different email for this account because it is all getting wonky otherwise--I can't even get in with the previous one): email@example.com
This is great! I already had a video chat account but I did not know about the redirect tool, and I ESPECIALLY like that I can add it to the Nagivation Menu (which I didn't think was possible). However, my chat video doesn't appear directly in the page. It makes me click again to go to outside webpage. How did you get yours to appear right there?
The Redirect Tool will bring in an external website with SSL into the course. Mostly. appear.in works because the video opens inside the web page. Other tools that use pop-ups or modals won't work the same. We've done this with Zoom as well- which opens it's own window when you launch it so the student 'leaves' the course. It doesn't look as nice, but is still fully functional. Added a Zoom demo to CanvasHacks as well.
The Redirect Tool opens some doors for Canvas hacking. = ) We are currently building a website specifically to bring into courses with the Redirect Tool - to add functionality. Since we can't hack much inside the system, we're building outside and bringing it in. It's kind of... custom app development that is hosted on our own server and can be embedded. Gives us more capability.
I have added you.
