Taking Your Classes Online
Need help taking your classes online? The college has collected and developed information that can help! These documents contain helpful tips for taking your classes online, short descriptions of the available technology available for online courses.
Canvas should be considered your distribution hub for all information about your course including announcements/email to students, file sharing, link sharing, discussion threads, assignment management. You can record video lectures right inside of Canvas. You can even post videos to Canvas made from other sources into Canvas. There is a file size limit on the file you can upload. The best way to get around this if you are not sure how to compress the video or needs it to be uncompressed for quality purposes is to upload the file to your OneDrive and then create a shareable link that you can post to Canvas and other communication methods. You can find OneDrive instructions on https://it.libarts.colostate.edu/ and Canvas DIY instructions at https://canvas.colostate.edu/keepteaching/keep-teaching-do-it-yourself/. It’s recommneded that every faculty at least looks over the Canvas Keep Teaching DIY section. For support faculty should first look to their department experts for Canvas support, the next line would be the College Canvas Coordinator, Hannah, she can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. Hannah, will also be sending out information to the faculty to help them transition their courses. Lastly, the Canvas Keep Teaching page has information about how to get help from central resources that will be available Monday through Friday 8:00am to 5:00pm Mountain time. Emails about this service and when to use it went out to faculty this morning.
