    Do you need help with Camino?  These are the types of sentiments we hear from faculty who call us with Camino questions:

    I wish I'd called you earlier...
    It's so much easier to do it that way...
    Thanks for helping me set up the gradebook...
    Speed grader and rubrics are saving me so much time!

    Please don't struggle with your Camino issues or questions - we are here to make your life easier!

  •  Camino 2.0: Tips of the Week and Canvas support


    [
    PLEASE NOTE that ANGEL will continue to be accessible for retrieving materials, as well as for Community Groups,  through June 30, 2014]

    Need assistance with Canvas for your winter quarter courses?  Please contact one of the Instructional Technology Resource Specialists to set up an appointment - they are eager to help you!  

    Mike Ballen, mballen@scu.edu, 408-551-1842
    Michael Gilkison, mgilkison@scu.edu, 408-551-6087 
    Gloria Hofer, ghofer@scu.edu, 408-551-1863


    Tip #1 - Want to archive your fall quarter Canvas course? Here's how to export the content to your computer:

    -Open the course you wish to archive.

    -Go to settings on the left column at the bottom.

    -In the top right corner of your screen, select “Export Course Content”

    -For “Export Type” make sure “Course” is selected; click “Create Export.”

    -You will see a progress bar that is creating a file of your Canvas course. 

    -After blue progress bar has finished, select “Click Here to Download” option. The file will then go to your downloads folder.

    -Create a folder, labeled with course title and quarter, and save the file there.

     

    NOTE: This export only exports the content that you loaded into the course. Any student work or discussion boards are not backed up. This export will assist you in populating content when teaching the same course again.

     

    Tip #2 - Want your students to continue to have access to your fall course next quarter? Here's how to change the end date of your course:

    -Open the course you want to make accessible.

    -Go to settings on the left column at the bottom.

    -Select the “Course Details” tab if it is not already selected.

    -Select “Edit Course Details” at the bottom of the screen.

    -About the 6th option from the top, entitled “End” is where you select the end date for the course. You can go years from now if you choose, and you can change these settings at any time.

    -Once you have the desired date selected, scroll to the bottom of the screen and select “Update Course Details.”

    -Once the page saves, make sure the change is reflected on the current page. Once again, as the instructor you can change the start and end date at any time.

  •  Camino 2.0: Countdown... moving to Canvas for all Winter and Spring courses

    As we announced this past summer, ANGEL will stop being used for your classes at the end of the calendar year.  Are you still using the old Camino (ANGEL) site?  NOW IS THE TIME to start the transition to Canvas!  Have you archived all of your ANGEL courses for use in future quarters?  NOW IS A GOOD TIME to archive your recent courses so you can import them into Canvas later!


    Please follow these steps to archive ANGEL courses to your desktop:

    1. go into your old Camino course and click on Manage

    2. click on Export Console

    3. click on ANGEL format

    4. select the types of content you want to export 

    5. click Next

    6. click Go back to Export Course Content

    7. click the Refresh button until you see your course and a green check mark in Status

    8. click on the File name to download it to your computer. The file will download as an ANGEL .zip file.  Save it to your computer.  

    When you are ready to import the archived course (ANGEL .zip file) into a Canvas course, please follow these directions:

    9.  log into Canvas and point the mouse at Courses (in the red stripe at the top of the page) to see your courses, and click on the course name

    10. click Settings (on the left navigation panel on the bottom left side of the screen)

    11. click Import Content into this Course (on the navigation column on the far right of the Course Settings)

    12. in the Content Type, choose ANGEL Export .zip format

    13. click on browse to choose the file, and choose the zip file you archived to your desktop

    14. click Import -- this could take anywhere from 4 to 45 minutes in duration, depending on the size of your course.

  •  Camino 2.0: Tip of the Week and Brown Bags

    Tip:  Are you using online quizzes in Canvas? If so, do you need to make accommodations for students who need more time to complete them?  On a quiz, you can give an individual student, several students, or the entire class extra attempts or extra time by using the "moderate this quiz" options. It is also possible to control access to the quiz/responses once it is taken. Check out the help guide in Canvas at:

    http://guides.instructure.com/s/2204/m/4152/l/50753-once-i-publish-my-quiz-how-can-i-give-my-students-extra-time-or-extra-attempts?utm_source=scu&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=1982&

  •  Camino 2.0: Tip of the Week and Canvas Brown Bags
