We are in the very early stages of rolling out Canvas to our staff and have developed some template pages for teachers to use. I am interested to hear what process others use for this. In particular:

1.Do you put the template pages in Commons and teachers download into their courses?

2.How do you avoid the problems that come with downloading the same template multiple times - that is, unless teachers rename the original one they downloaded it over writes with whatever they do to the second copy? In other words - do you just educate teachers on making sure they always rename every template page when it first comes into their course? Or is there something we are missing here? Seems so fraught with danger!


Any advice or suggestions on best practice process on using template pages please!!
