“I have a question about Canvas. Do you have a sec?” said any Canvas user at some point in his/her life. 

Many of us know there are multiple ways to apply the tools and leverage the features in Canvas. Despite having almost thousands of pages of official guide documentation and 33K+ posts in Q&A, we still rely heavily on our colleagues and other community members for real-time support.

Can you spare an hour?

We initially asked this question of our Canvas Advocates. And we were overwhelmed with their initial responses! Many of them found times in their already-busy schedules to commit to future virtual office hours, free to anyone in the community. In fact, as of this posting, over 20 hours of open virtual office time have been scheduled through July 31, 2020!

Some office hours are audience-specific (i.e. for admins or teachers). Some are platform-specific, like mobile. Others are people-specific. I mean, who wouldn’t want to 'Jabber with Jenna' or talk all-things-Canvas with Beth?

We are thankful to our Canvas Advocates who are setting a great example. Click here to check out all of the upcoming virtual office hours.

Can community members host virtual office hours?

Yes. YES. YASSSS! We would love that! In fact, we welcome any hour you can provide in support of each other. Schedule your office hours when it’s most convenient for you (even if that means 5am or 10pm). We are a global community, after all.

Click for steps on hosting your CanvasLIVE event

NOTE: There are no naming conventions for ‘event title’ (but be sure to select ‘office hours’ under event type so members can easily filter by and find an event.) Title your office hours however you wish (i.e., “Bob’s Office Hours”, “Teacher Office Hours”, “Open Lab for All”) -- you get the idea!


But what if I don’t have the answers?

** News flash** We don’t always have all the answers, either!

Seriously, don’t feel like you have to duplicate Canvas support. We want you to be there to help answer questions to the best of your ability, point people to resources and guides in the community, and help users make progress towards their goals (even if that means helping them create a support ticket.)

“Answering questions and solving problems is a key to my own professional development. If I do not know the answer, I take the time to explore the possibilities during the session,” encourages professorbeyrer@gmail.com, Canvas Advocate who has already hosted over 40 virtual office hours in the Canvas community since 2017. “Through those interactions, I have discovered new ways of doing things and hopefully helped others.”

Any tips?

There isn’t a right or wrong way to host virtual office hours. But if you want to avoid being “Zoom-bombed” or ensure you don’t share the wrong screen, here are a few suggestions:

  • Use video conferencing technology with which you are most familiar. People should be able to hear and see you, clearly. Ensure that participants can join easily and securely, if possible (i.e. enable waiting room in Zoom, know how to kick people out who aren’t appropriate, etc.)
  • Stay online the entire time. Even if no one shows up, keep your event open the entire scheduled time. You never know who might show up later in the session. Multi-task if you wish, but don’t end early.
  • Share the time with a colleague. If you don’t want to go at it alone, tag-team with another colleague. At least, if no one shows up, you have some time to catch up. Smiley Wink
  • Double-book with your school. If you already host virtual office hours at your school, consider opening up one of those sessions to the wider Canvas community. (Or vice versa - if you’re hosting an event here, let your faculty know, as well.)
  • Avoid recording the session. These sessions are not meant for public consumption. People are coming to seek help in real-time (and sometimes that’s easier than articulating their question as a Q&A). Respect their privacy.

Some faculty are developing new Canvas courses. Other Canvas admins are helping schools wrap up their semesters. Sometimes all we need is to talk through our Canvas journey with a friendly face.

Keep helping each other!

Assessment will be more important than ever...

Live Webinar, May 19th, 12_00pm EDT

With twenty-five percent of the previous year's content getting delivered via remote learning, and with no-end-of-year testing scores to reference for student performance, how will districts prepare for Fall 2020? To better personalize learning during this unprecedented time, schools should look to develop a strong assessment strategy that informs teaching and learning at all levels to mitigate learning loss the best they can.

Join this webinar and learn how schools can: 

  • Leverage a simple framework for improving communication and assessment processes.
  • Take a data-driven approach to monitor student learning, while proactively providing intervention strategies.
  • Support teachers, provide world-class professional development opportunities, and increase collaboration district-wide.
  • Streamline the development of curriculum or assessment maps at the district, school or teacher level.

Don't miss out on the opportunity to get your students on track for this upcoming school year.

This livestream is intended for instructors who plan to use LockDown Browser and Respondus Monitor with Canvas quizzes. LockDown Browser is a custom browser that prevents digital cheating during Canvas quizzes. Respondus Monitor is a companion product for LockDown Browser that deters cheating when students take Canvas quizzes in non-proctored environments. Students use their own computers with a standard webcam to record assessment sessions, and instructors can review data and video after the assessment.

We’ll cover:

  • How to use LockDown Browser + Respondus Monitor to protect exam integrity
  • The student perspective using LockDown Browser + Respondus Monitor
  • Efficient review of post-exam assessment data, including the Review Priority system, timeline, and milestone features
  • Best practices and tips for success with both applications.

Abstract

Canvas Studio is a new tool that helps to make teaching with video more intuitive and learning more interactive. Studio helps professors make videos that are not only intuitive and interactive, but also collaborative.

Below is the registration link

https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/3067388253001423627

Make sure to register before the session starts.  You will be provided with your own calendar event and a unique link to click on once the session starts.

Description

Studio (formerly ARC) is a simple and easy to use video management tool that allows faculty and students to drag and drop videos into Canvas or create original content via either webcam or screen capture - ideal for instruction, demonstrations, simulations, and stimulating discussions. Students can engage, comment, discuss, and ask questions - and their comments appear right on the video with timestamps. Professors can follow up with their own explanations, answers, or additional probing questions.

Studio is not simply a repository of passive videos. It offers analytics that allow professors to see who has watched (or hasn't watched) content, and for how long and which parts each student watched. Professors can also review comments and discussion content.

In this webinar, we will explore how to use Studio as a collaborative video tool within a Canvas course. We will demonstrate how to record and upload video, as well as embedding content - including virtual reality (VR) videos from YouTube. We will then explore various ways to use Studio within assignments, on content pages, as a quizzing tool, or as a vehicle for collaboration or discussions. Finally, we will review the analytics to assess which students are watching content, for how long, and which parts of the video students might be skipping.

Agenda

Things we will demonstrate:

  • Uploading or recording video
  • Embedding content
  • Using studio as a graded assignment (quiz or discussion tool)
  • Assessing the video analytics and student activity

The holidays are just around the corner and what better way to spend the downtime then binge-watching InstructureCon 2018‌ session recordings! (We doubt there's this level of professional development on Netflix.)

Of course, there are 130+ sessions from which to choose! This makes it a bit challenging to know which video to start. So, we created the following playlist purely based on two metrics: play rate (videos that were clicked and played) and engagement rate (% of the video watched). Based on this analysis, the TOP 20 videos were determined.

TOP 20

Description

How do accreditation teams determine whether regular and substantive interaction is happening in on-line courses? Evidence suggests that different teams may have very different ideas about how to do this. Let’s talk about how we might be able to add some structure and equality to that process, and how we can ensure that the ACCJC gets what they need while protecting the privacy rights of faculty and students.

Objectives

By the end of this session, participants will understand what the ACCJC is looking for in terms of R&S contact and ways it can be achieved.

Registration

Registration information can be found on the conference page: ACCJC Determination of Regular and Effective Contact.

Interactive Media Through Arc

Wednesday, July 18, 2018

Noon PT / 3:00 p.m. ET

Meeting virtually via BlueJeans

Instructure says its media hosting platform, Arc, is "the end of passive video." A university in Idaho that has been using Arc almost since its debut in late 2016 can attest that the slogan is true.

With Arc, faculty and students alike can record from their webcam or create a screen capture. The resulting video files will automatically import into Canvas for sharing with others. Screencasts also have a built-in editing suite that appears once the video is complete. With both types of recordings, owners can enable, edit, and publish automatic captions.

No webcam? No problem. Just enter the URL for a YouTube video.

Here's where Arc provides real value: students may enter comments and questions at specific points of the videos, and faculty can see analytics to learn who has watched the videos, and for how long.

On July 18, Jesse Buchholz of Northwest Nazarene University will demonstrate Arc's many features. Join us for an informative session about a solution that can bring true interactivity to your online (or face-to-face) courses.

Description

Participants are coming from all over Europe (Netherlands and United Kingdom, so far!) with a focus on K12 (school and FE) education technology, but representatives from local HE providers (such as University of Wolverhampton, University of Birmingham) will share their insights into how Canvas is used by their staff and students, too.

 

Agenda (or Objectives)

We will discuss onboarding, enbracing culture change, supporting staff and students that are techphobic, and demonstrating how teaching practice can be made more efficient and effective through CanvasLMS. We will help each other get to grips with technical aspects such as embedding iFrames and using apps within Canvas.

CanvasLIVE event will be actually LIVE - in person!  Participation is free of charge with a delicious lunch provided. We will be ready to welcome you at 9am with departure at approx. 3pm. Check out our beautiful campus and get directions to us: Bromsgrove School - Outstanding Education. Requests for a seat at our fabulous event should be submitted to edtech@bromsgrove-school.co.uk, please! Early advising of additional needs (dietary, access, etc.) may make it easier for us to accommodate you. Proposals for lightning talks, suggestions on topics to discuss, queries about what soup we will serve, top tips on running a TeachMeet-Unconference combo, or general banter can be submitted below in the comments or by direct message through my Twitter @DrDawnPhD.

 

Meet people passionate about pedagogy and get inspired!

If you love CanvasLMS and want to share best practice ideas with likeminded professionals, come along on Friday June 15th and participate in our TeachMeet.

JOIN US!

But if you can't make it over, then check out the Twitter chat we'll be hosting during the day using the hashtagbromsedtech‌

We’ll discuss hot topics trending in the Ed tech world and host Canvas-specific sessions. We’ve jam-packed the agenda with awesome sessions from educators, innovators, and thought leaders in both Higher Education and K12. There will be separate tracks for Higher Ed and K12, and plenty of ed-tech goodness—new skills and techniques, networking, collaboration, idea-sharing, and other fun—for Canvas users and non-Canvas users alike. We promise there’s something for everyone! Join us for a full day of learning and awesomeness or risk suffering in everlasting FOMO.
