Faculty who have never done anything online may be overwhelmed at the thought of putting SOMETHING online for their students to access. If they can populate a course shell with a text equivalent, this may help to simplify remote instruction. If you are not familiar with Canvas Commons, this guide to accessing Canvas Commons (a PDF) may be useful. As you likely already know, a search of “CVC” in Canvas Commons will show you the CVC-OEI’s OpenStax resources. And we are now adding additional titles – readily available by searching “ASCCC”. You can import a Commons resource directly into a Canvas course shell – where its contents will be added to whatever is already in the course. Alternatively, you could import resources into a shell for a given discipline – and then make all faculty in the discipline teachers. This would then allow them to import individual modules into their courses.
If you have a resource that you would like to see added to Commons and want assistance with making that happen, please let us know – and/or if there is a way that we can modify our resources to simplify things, please contact us by e-mail.
