If I already loaded several segments of film in modules, how to I move them to the proper place?
Kate Beverage
20:57
Constance, you can drag and drop items within modules to other modules. If you want to rearrange the order of modules, you can also do that too.
Kate Beverage
21:19
Click the 8 waffle dots to the left of a module or an item within a module to move.
Kate Beverage
22:43
And apologies, click and drag the 8 waffle dots to move
Craig Wills

I used Echo 360 client to record a short video clip, but don't immediately see how to put that into canvas.
Kate Beverage
25:27
Craig, Echo360 will publish to the Echo360 area
Kate Beverage
25:48
if you would like to link to an Echo360 video within a module, you can go to Module > + Item > Add External Tool > + Echo360
Jolene Cotnoir
25:51
You can also add an echo360 recording embed into any Canvas text editor.
Kate Beverage
26:14
Correct, so create a page within a module and then embed Echo360 there :)
Kate Beverage
26:20
Any of those 3 options will work!
Jolene Cotnoir
26:47
Yup! (For the text editor, look for the button that has a blue circle around a blue triangle.)

if I have 30 minute quiz and I assign it to take from 1 pm - 2 pm, do they have to start the quiz late to late by 1:30 pm or they can start at 1:59 pm and still take the quiz
Kate Beverage
29:49
Mehul, they can start at 1:59pm and take the quiz within the 30 minute timer you set.
Mehul Bhatia
30:14
okay, thanks Kate
Jolene Cotnoir
30:25
It’s also important to note that the time limit does not pause if they navigate away from the page.

Kate, can I lock files or quizzes within a module so they have to progress through that module in order? Where do I add pre-requisites?
Kate Beverage
30:47
The quiz will be available for access during that one hour window but once they start, the timer begins counting down. If you have a student with an accommodation who requires time and a half on the exam (or double time, etc.), use the "Moderate" button in the quiz to add extra time to individual students' attempts.
Jim Doyle
31:04
Is there a limit to how short a quiz can be? E.g., could I give a quiz with a time limit of 2 mins?
Kate Beverage
31:07
Lou, you can! Let me send you a link to instructions.

Hi Jim, I believe the shortest time limit is 1 minute but let me look into that.
Mehul Bhatia
32:27
can I have problem set for quiz and canvas can randomly assign different questions to students
Jolene Cotnoir
32:49
Yes!
Kate Beverage
32:51
You can!

Jason Davis
35:03
For students to submit assignments, how do they do that and what do I see when they do?
laroberts@wpi.edu
35:16
thanks Jolene
Kate Beverage
35:27
Shortest quiz timer is 1 minute
Jolene Cotnoir
35:40
A student can submit assignments by clicking on the name of the assignment, and then following the instructions on their screen.
Kate Beverage
35:45
You are not able to give students less than 1 minute of time to take a quiz.
Jolene Cotnoir
36:04
I’ll get some instructions—you can also test these out by using the Test Student feature.
Mehul Bhatia
36:12
I teach course where students have to draw 2d projection of 3d part, what is the best way to upload their work for that particular question of the quiz

Mehul, you can create a quiz with a “file upload” question if you want to include a question that involves a student’s drawing.
Jolene Cotnoir
38:59
File upload question info: https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-12878-4152125612

Canvas messages do not allow for rich-text editing. This is because students can opt-in to text messages which do not support rich-text (bolding, italics, etc.)
Kate Beverage
48:28
Other areas of Canvas support rich-text, but not the "Messages" tool. If you want to create bulleted lists or emphasize text, consider dashes and capitalized text in lieu of bolding, colored text, etc.
Kate Beverage
49:32
Jolene, you fail.
Jennifer Rudolph
49:56
Can you please show us how to hide grades from students so that no one can see grades until we have finished grading all submissions from a particular assignment?
Kate Beverage
50:43
Here's a link to instructions but I believe Lindsey will be going over this as well: https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-17999-how-do-i-use-posting-policies-in-my-course

Jennifer Rudolph
55:15
how did you add images to your week modules in sample course?
laroberts@wpi.edu
57:27
The week 1, 2, etc. Jennifer? I was about to ask the same thing?
Jason Davis
58:34
will a recorded powerpoint with voiceover be too large to post as a file?
Jennifer Rudolph
59:58
If we want students to post videos (let's say a short presentation they have to do), should they do that through Studio?
Kate Beverage
01:00:34
Canvas storage is defaulted to 1gb but if you have large course files and find yourself close to capacity, we can increase on a course-by-course basis. It is not meant to be restrictive, just the default. But as Lindsey points out, exporting a PPT via File to a video file, you can use Canvas Studio for that.
Jennifer Rudolph
01:01:01
So do we have to make Studio visible to students?
Kate Beverage
01:01:02
https://wp.wpi.edu/edmedia/2019/04/08/powerpoint_canvas_workflow/
Kate Beverage
01:01:27
Jennifer, no. Not if you post individual Canvas studio videos to modules or embed within the rich-text editor on a page, discussion post, or announcement.
Jennifer Rudolph
01:01:53
Even if we want them to make a video?
Kate Beverage
01:02:46
Students can access studio from the rich-text editor, from the assignment, or from the media storage link in the left-hand global navigation menu
Jolene Cotnoir
01:02:49
I believe if you make an assignment use File Upload submissions, they should have a place where they can use Studio.
Kate Beverage
01:02:50
stay tuned for a link
