I can't hear anything
I can hear you. I don't have a microphone.
Any advice on audio? My speakers are working
I don't have a laptop. I don't have a microphone, so all this is lost on me.
having to use zoom app. have to run an errand during this
For everyone using Microsoft, if you hold alt and press tab, you can switch active windows as well
Please proceed posthaste.
I have not used canvas before. You might want to start with the basics
I have not used Zoom before. I had never heard of it.
Do I have to send my e-mail or do you automatically get the list of participants
Thank You for the session. Do we also have access to Zoom to have sessions with students?
Are you reading the chat?
He's obviously reading the chat
Ann - can you hear?
Yes 40 min
Yes, but he was referring to messages I had not seen.
Teams is easier in my opinion for synchronous discussion/recording

Is there a place where students can see these basic instructions instead of each professor telling them how to do it?
also, here is the link to the provost site: https://www.uta.edu/administration/provost/policies-and-resources/canvas/students
I got lost. If students have notifications turned off, how do we tell them to turn the notifications on?
by default, they all receive an immediate notification for anouncements
What is the file size limit for uploading files?
the course quota is set to 5 gb
but you can upload larger video files in studio
so how do I assign weight of the grades on canvas for each assignment?
How/Where do we see students' upload files?
any option to delete comments?
What does the red icon mean?
is there a way that the comment will not display the grader's name?
Canvas currently offers the ability to hide the names of students whose work is being graded, but it does not offer the ability to hide the name(s) of those grading an assignment.
I need to disconnect. Please include me in the email with the links. Thanks.
Time limit: at what pint the clock starts?
whenever they start the test
Sorry, at what point the timing starts
how do I grade individual test and upload it for students?
How do I adjust timings for students registered with OSD? Students that have accommodations.
Does a second attempt start where they left off or start over?
where do I upload the answer key?
Can figures be added - like chemical structures?
Can we cut and paste into it or does it have to be a jpeg/png etc?
did you say LateX code? I suppose you could paste it in as plain text
Can test questions be brought in from TestGen?
Can I just upload the answer key as a file? I want to use already made quizzes and answer keys on my desktop
You cannot upload the answer key, however you could use Respondus 4.0 to upload a test made in MS Word
If they take more than one attempt, are both attempts saved and can be reviewed?
Yes, both can be viewed.
Let's say I want to give students a formula sheet they will need to access during the entire test. Will I have to add that file to every question (assuming I show one question at a time) or if I upload it to the instructions, will they be able to see it during the entirety of the test?
Sounds like you would just need to upload that file in the test instructions
they could download before the test starts.
Even if I am having them use a lockdown browser?
then you would have to paste anything needed in each question--I think.. I'd have to look at the test
How are the essay parts added to mcq?
sounds like you would just need to create an essay question
For essay questions, do students upload their answer?
I have tests which are part mcq and part essay - can this be done within Canvas and if so, how is the scoring handled? MCQ is automatic, but if I grade the essay part manually is this automatically added to give a total score? Make sense?
they would type the essay in the text field
yeah that works, you can change the question type as you go
Carl, yes, the essays are graded manually and the MC automatically
Can you do lock down on phones?
just ipad i think. you have to set them to be available on ipad
he'll probably show that
The answer is yes. All they need to do is take a pic
So, say you have a programming test and they have to write a program. Will the lockdown browser allow them to switch to another application (not another browser)?
it won't, unfortunately
can they print part of an exam?
For a write out?
Ok - no problem
It doesn't work for chemistry - but that's ok.
I believe tanizaki has been using it for chemistry--but I think tht's an intro class
Maybe we can chat offline.
We have another training preparing teaching online at 11am today using Echo360. It is in conflict with this time.
Are you going to do Studio today?
We tested this TEAMS option with a UTA student and it was very easy for them to log in and install teams and join the meeting
I highly recommend it
How is Teams different from Conferences? I'd prefer to keep it simple, but I want to offer synchronous and recorded lectures like we are doing now. Is Conferences enough for that?
Is it better than conferences?
So the students need to be contacted to download the Teams app?
they will be prompted to download when clicking the link
What do they see on a Conference, camera, screen or both?
just checked and canvas is having some issues with BigBlueButton. They are working on it but some users may experience slow down, etc.
I am not able to join it.
I missed the part...what are we doing?
am I supposed to check my email?
click on the link to join a Canvas conference.
looks like I have old browser.
works now. thanks.
I don't see a scheduling feature for conferences. Is that possible?
Is there a size limit on participants on conferences?
Could you drop it into a page or assignment?
I can hear you but can't see your screen.
I keep receiving an error with Studio that says “Failed to encode! Are you on a restricted computer at school or business?” Is this something you have seen before and know the solution? It has given me this error on multiple computers so I worry it may be my Canvas account.
Does PPT need to be in the slide show mode?
Can we edit caption?
Before closing, is there a way to combine two courses. I teach cross-listed course (4000 and 5000 level)?
thanks, will try it today.
Thanks so much Joseph. This has been super helpful
Thanks so much
stay safe all.
Thanks Joseph. Very helpful
