Jon Bouknight

I've got time for Jim Moodies' birds anytime
Aby Ghiara
13:47
Some of us are new...so please explain everything as if for first time...no blackboard no canvas experience
Aby Ghiara
14:54
So far all Greek to me :(
Amy Harper
15:30
Aby, We are shifting our learning management system from Blackboard to Canvas in winter
Amy Howell
15:44
No worries @Aby, this is an amazing team, and we will have a ton of support this fall as we make these changes.
Yasuko Jackson
15:46
Hi Aby - Welcome to COCC!! My staff has reached out to all of the new faculty to provide individualized support. We will help with Blackboard course content and Canvas as well!
Aby Ghiara
16:07
Yay!
Bruce Emerson (he/his)
17:05
Is that the same as saying students can access Bb as a course content manager through July?
Amy Harper
17:27
@Aby - second what Amy Howell said - eLearning is fabulous and helpful and you can also talk to those of us in Modoc. We are also supportive if you have questions
Aby Ghiara
18:00
Thank you!
Aby Ghiara
19:48
Just looked it up...there are IPAD apps for both...OK to use or only PC?
Yasuko Jackson
20:27
@Bruce - We will remove BB icon from student login page. Only students who will be accessing Bb after Fall 2021 term is those who received the "Incomplete" grades.
Yasuko Jackson
21:51
@Aby - Please feel free to use app on your mobile devices. Canvas as Student app and Teacher app.
Bruce Emerson (he/his)
23:26
I opened a new course — yay!
Patrick Kennelly
23:29
Start a New Course is in mine
Yasuko Jackson
24:47
Thank you for confirming, Bruce and Pat!
Amy Harper
25:50
Will students be able to change their preferred name as well?
Bruce Emerson (he/his)
26:30
I just imported one of my Bb zip files and it all came over pretty well. Not sure how much restructuring I’ll need to do but basic migration seems to work easily!
Yasuko Jackson
27:54
@Amy - Students names are coming from Banner registration system. If they register preferred name through Admissions and Records, the preferred name will appear in Canvas not the legal names.
Amy Harper
30:25
Thanks @Yasuko. So If students ask, I can direct them to Admissions and Records?
Bruce Emerson (he/his)
30:49
Can we create ‘soft’ due dates?
Yasuko Jackson
31:03
@Amy - Please do. In order to change the information on Banner record, A&R needs to check their ID.
Dan Alberghetti
32:07
This question has probably already been asked but when can we actually start teaching our classes in Canvas?
Amy Harper
32:48
Winter @Dan
Aby Ghiara
32:49
Thank you Yasuko and Kristine for reaching out to me privately...much appreciated coz this info is way over my head
Amy Howell
33:38
Can we initiate emails from this?
Yasuko Jackson
33:57
This Fall 2021 term is the very last term we will be using Blackboard for teaching and learning. Everyone will shift to Canvas in Winter 2022!
Yasuko Jackson
35:07
@Amy - Yes, you can compose a message and select a course. Oh Kristine is just showing it.
Amy Harper
36:17
Can I turn off the feature that sends to Outlook? I love the ability to keep student email within Canvas (Outlook email is so overwhelming)
Bruce Emerson (he/his)
36:19
Seems a bit slow to update the inbox...
Yasuko Jackson
38:24
@Amy - I need to double check but probably not. When you send a message to students, they will receive it in outlook as well and direct reply will come back to your inbox as well. Let me follow up on this with correct answer.
Bruce Emerson (he/his)
39:55
The commons seems to be heavily populated at k-12 level. Is this plausible
Stephina Brewer
39:56
Where is the filter results button
Stephina Brewer
40:40
found it!
Bruce Emerson (he/his)
41:51
Sorry I have another meeting…:) good work, I’m less worried.
Yasuko Jackson
43:21
@Bruce - There are tons of K12 but also Higher Ed. It is fun to search and look through what is available.
Marilyn Waller-Niewold
43:30
Thank you Kristin, Yasuko, Scott and Sarah - repetition and redundancy - some of this is now actually sticking.
Marilyn Waller-Niewold
44:28
By attending all these Canvas trainings, I am finally seeing how to massage my course in Blackboard this term to enable a smoother transition to Canvas...thank you.
Aby Ghiara
44:46
Accessibility yay!
Yasuko Jackson
45:36
@Marilyn - Thank you for attending our trainings through summer and kick-off too. We are also learning going though this process and the questions from faculty has been the biggest help to get to know Canvas!
Jon Bouknight
46:04
E-Learning has my back!
Aby Ghiara
46:30
E learning yay!
Tony Russell
46:36
@Yasuko: Apologies if this was already asked, does Canvas feature something similar to Bb that rates the accessibility of course content and provides tips for making these items more accessible?
Yasuko Jackson
49:48
@Tony - We have integrated the program Ally which is the accessibility checker we have been using in Bb. You will see the green/yellow/red guage with percentage rating and tips to improve accessibility.
Tony Russell
49:58
Yay!!!!
Tony Russell
50:34
Thank you!
Patrick Kennelly
51:52
Will there be training for part-time and adjunct faculty teaching in the Winter and Spring?
Yasuko Jackson
52:41
@Pat - Yes! We will offer multiple training sessions as well as reaching out to those who would benefit from the individualized support.
Marilyn Waller-Niewold
55:05
So Canvas Syllabus is fundamentally different from our course syllabus - is that correct?
Dan Alberghetti
55:12
Al lot of students really rely on Canvas assignment due dates because they show up in their calendar and on the syllabus
Amy Howell
55:55
In the migration, are our content folders automatically moved to modules? Ex: Week 1, 2…
Yasuko Jackson
56:01
@Marilyn - That is correct. Canvas syllabus is compilation of some key information. You can add more info there or upload your "official" syllabus file as well.
Marilyn Waller-Niewold
56:26
@Yasuko - thank you.
Yasuko Jackson
57:05
@Dan - I agree. Having due dates in course also helps students to receive the timely reminder notifications.
Dan Alberghetti
57:07
students manage their weekly work based on what they see in the calendar, so assignments with no due dates are problematic … in my experience
Leslie Houston
57:29
Will we still have access to Honorlock? :)
Yasuko Jackson
57:44
@Amy - It will be depending on how your Bb course is organized. Looks like Kristine is showing it now.
Dan Alberghetti
57:47
@Yasuko good point about the notifications
Yasuko Jackson
58:19
@Leslie - Yes! Honorlock has been integrated into Canvas as well.
Leslie Houston
58:33
Thank you Yasuko :D
Dan Alberghetti
58:50
I have used Announcements a lot and students can also comment on the announcements … which can be nice.
Dan Alberghetti
59:22
You can hide things using the Settings
Dan Alberghetti
01:00:14
You can set up departmental templates to import into courses
Yasuko Jackson
01:00:17
@Dan - I noticed that Canvas allows us to interact with students so much easier.
Dan Alberghetti
01:00:58
I never used the mail system in BB but I use the mail inbox in Canvas all the time
Amy Howell
01:01:01
And you got a celebration!
Dan Alberghetti
01:02:01
The Speed Grader is sweet too!
Aby Ghiara
01:04:37
Have to head to my dept meeting thanks!
Marilyn Waller-Niewold
01:05:25
