There is a chance my class will be cancelled in the Fall. If it is will the import I create be lost?
Dr. Luanne Fose (she, her, hers)
04:59
I don’t think so but it might be wise to develop your course in a sandbox and then migrate it over later.
Dr. Luanne Fose (she, her, hers)

I record all of my zoom videos in the cloud. So we can't post a link to our Zoom videos in canvas?
Dr. Luanne Fose (she, her, hers)
12:15
No, Trisha. That is how you want to do it. Share a link to ZOOM video in Canvas. We’re talking about not trying to upload a video directly into Canvas. Causes many problems.
Dr. Luanne Fose (she, her, hers)
12:52
Ed shares the following, which is a good tip: You probably know this, but copying the HTML code for a Polylearn page and pasting it into a Canvas Page (HTML editor) works really nicely.

You can link in Canvas to video resources outside of Canvas such as YouTube, Screencast-O-Matic, Vimeo, Microsoft Stream, etc.
Angelica Browne

What about simple "pages"?
Michael Black
18:00
I have drag and drop question types in PolyLearn - would these successfully transfer or would they need to be rewritten (if that option is even available on Canvas)?
Dr. Luanne Fose (she, her, hers)
18:07
Not sure what you mean, Angelica? If you mean can you link to normal web pages, yes!
Dr. Luanne Fose (she, her, hers)
18:32
I’ll need to ask Tonia that one, Michael.
Marianne McGarry Wolf
18:38
I use Forums as a place for students to upload powerpoint presentions by group. Will that work in Canvas. Or, is there a better way?
Dr. Luanne Fose (she, her, hers)
19:03
Yes, Marianne. You will have that ability in Canvas.
Marianne McGarry Wolf
19:15
Thanks!
Dr. Luanne Fose (she, her, hers)
21:07
Well, Michael, it appears you’ll have to re-do the Drag and Drop. Bummer!
Michael Black
21:20
Just saw that - bummer…

what is the easiest way to get a second shell?

Can you show us HOW to import? Maybe that’s coming. If so, thanks!
Dr. Luanne Fose (she, her, hers)
30:23
Just be sure on the Select Specific Content pull-down, if you want all the content to go over, select the radio button next to “All content.”
Dr. Luanne Fose (she, her, hers)
30:55
She showed you a few minutes ago. Look at the page above I just pasted in.

She showed us WHERE It happens but would like to see an example of what it looks like to migrate a course

If we only plan to migrate one section of our PolyLearn course (quizzes, for example) AND we plan on using some of the template features you shared (from Cal Poly Commons) - is there an order you recommend we do that? Will the import of PolyLearn files mess with the rest of the Canvas page(s)?
Dr. Luanne Fose (she, her, hers)
33:21
Trisha, she was showing you in her course the mess that comes in and is showing rearranging now.
Gordon Rivera
33:54
Tonia- how do we import the PL backup file?
Dr. Luanne Fose (she, her, hers)
35:51
Click on the Settings link in Canvas and select “Import Course Content” Then scroll down and click your choices. Again, scroll down the page and read here: https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-13101-4152497985
Dr. Luanne Fose (she, her, hers)
36:43
Amber, I would use the template from the Cal Poly Commons FIRST and then migrate a section such as your PolyLearn quizzes.
Chris Carr
36:43
Sorry to be the sqeaky wheel … will we not see a rough actual example of a course being migrated? I was hoping to see that before we go to the links for the details.
Dr. Luanne Fose (she, her, hers)
37:18
With poor internet and ZOOM taking up bandwidth, it would take a long time for it too import.

Trisha Daughtrey

Luanne - I clicked on "Import Course Content". What are my choices? I backed up my PL course. Do I click Moddle 1.9/2X?
Trisha Daughtrey

This is how you move your Sandbox course into Production (in other words, Fall Canvas course) later: https://canvassupport.calpoly.edu/migrating-polylearn-moodle-canvas#sandbox

Can I remove manually some "unused
Trisha Daughtrey
46:55
Thanks Luanne! I did follow the link instructions but it didn't say which content type to choose or if I should click the box for "Adjust events and due dates"
Angelica Browne
47:02
Can I remove manually "unused" courses shells from Canvas or I need to request this?

Angelica Browne

Just to sum up: is this the best way to proceed? 1) request the Sandbox shells to experiment with, 2) Migrate CalPoly Canvas Template to those Sandbox Shells, 3) Import PolyLearn / Moodle Content there 4) Make Adjustments to the Migrated Content of these Sandbox Shells 5) Copy / move Sandbox Courses into Production Fall 2020 Canvas
