Assignments not loading into a Module

Jump to solution

I have a list of assignments being pulled in from Pearson's MyFrenchLabs.  All of the assignments from the publisher are showing correctly in the assignment index in my course.  When I go to insert some (about a dozen out of 50 assignments) of these assignments into a module, they are not listed as options to insert.  

Has anyone experienced this, and if so, guidance is greatly appreciated

Hello  @emily_morgan  ...

I have a small bit of experience (though quite limited) with Pearson MyLabs LTI content.  My first question would be...when you look at your "Assignments" page in Canvas, what kind of icon is showing up next to those Pearson MyFrenchLabs items that you've imported into your course?  In my example below, the icons from top to bottom are graded Discussion, Quiz, and Assignment.

Assignment Icons

When you are trying to add the item to your Modules screen, are you selecting the appropriate category from the drop-down list?  Hopefully, the Pearson content would show up in one of those lists.  If you can please confirm this, that would be great...thanks!

Thanks for asking clarifying questions in an effort for group brainstorm, Chris!

In response: 

1.  The icons in the assignment list are an Assignment icon (pencil/notebook).  And they are published.

2.  The assignment index is properly set up with assignment categories, and I am looking in the appropriate category.  I've also looked in all the other categories for that matter, just to make sure I didn't accidently overlook anything--they aren't showing as an option to insert from any of the categories.

Ideas?

Hello again,  @emily_morgan  ...

This is certainly strange.  I tried masquerading as one of our faculty who uses MyMath Lab to see if her course had Pearson MyLabs content added in the Modules screen.  It did...and when I clicked on the "+" sign to try and add Pearson content from the "Assignments" category, I could see all the Pearson items listed for me to select from.

I'm thinking that a call or ticket to the Instructure Help Desk staff is in order for you, Morgan.  They might be able to help diagnose this better.  You can find their contact information by clicking on the "Help" icon on the left hand side of your Canvas environment.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help...kind of at a loss to determine what the issue may be.

Thank you for your efforts, Chris.  It is greatly appreciated.  Our University IT department believes it to be an issue on the Pearson side.  If it isn't, they have assured me they will contact Canvas.  Much gratitude!

Hi  @emily_morgan ...

It has been almost two months since there has been any new activity in this discussion topic, and so I thought that I would check in with you once again.  Were you able to contact the Help Desk staff at Instructure?  If so, what was the outcome of that conversation?  If you could please come back to this thread to post an update for the Canvas Community, that would be great.  Thanks, and looking forward to hearing from you soon!

Hi  @emily_morgan ...

I'm checking in with you once more.  There hasn't been any new activity in this thread for quite a while, so if you could please post an update letting the Community know if you are looking for additional help or if you've had an opportunity to contact the Help Desk, that would be great.  I'm going to go ahead and mark your question as "Assumed Answered" since there hasn't been any new activity in this thread for a few months, but that won't prevent you or others from posting additional questions and/or comments below.  I hope that's alright with you.  Looking forward to hearing back from you.

Hi, Chris.

Apparently the faculty who experienced this issue worked with the Publisher and got everything squared away.  Thanks for helping brainstorm solutions, and thanks for checking  back.
