I want to share outcomes in a way that instructors from my institution can get them and use them in their courses with their assignments and their rubrics. I figured Commons was the way to do it. However, it seems the only way to get outcomes in Commons is to attach to a rubric and attach the rubric to an assignment. The rubric is then useful for different assignments, but I can't figure out how to separate out the outcomes other than copy and paste into a new outcome. I do not want to get all involved with our institutions sub-accounts and permissions at this time and was hoping this was a simple way to get the ball rolling with the Outcomes features.
Any ideas from the community?
Hello @heidi1 ...
I don't really have an answer for you, but I wanted to let you know that I'm going to share your question with someone from Instructure that works with Canvas Commons. Hopefully you'll get a response soon!
Where you able to find an answer to your question? I am going to go ahead and mark this question as answered because there hasn't been any more activity in a while so I assume that you have the information that you need. If you still have a question about this or if you have information that you would like to share with the community, by all means, please do come back and leave a comment.
Hey @heidi1 ,
In researching the answer to a very similar question, Can you transfer teacher created outcomes from course to course or through commons?, it looks like this just isn't possible right now. Here's the response I gave over there:
sara.chai just posted a response with a solution from her faculty. It doesn't use commons but it does allow transferring of outcomes not just rubrics. Quoting Sara from Can you transfer teacher created outcomes from course to course or through commons? :
Added from the same teacher, she found...
1. Create the outcomes in your course
2. Export course content, choose only the “Learning Outcomes”
3. Import the outcomes into your other courses.
This works for one instructor with multiple courses with same learning outcomes.
