This document describes how instructors can import the Student Tech Module templates into Canvas courses. These modules, developed by DoIT Academic Technology's Learn@UW-Madison team, are designed to help instructors introduce centrally supported learning technologies such as Kaltura and Blackboard Collaborate Ultra to their students. The modules can save instructors time by helping them easily describe to students how they intend to use a technology in their course and by providing students with troubleshooting and help information.
The Student Tech Modules modules are located in Canvas Commons and can be found by searching for "Learn@UW" in Commons or by module name (for instance, "Kaltura Mediaspace Student Tech Module"). In addition, here are direct links to the modules:
To add a module to your Canvas course, click the Import/Download button in Canvas Commons, then either select the Canvas course in which to import the module, or download it for import back into your Canvas course.
If you import one or more Student Tech Modules into your Canvas course, you should review and edit them to suit how you are using a technology in your course before making them available to students. Importing them without at least some minimal editing could cause confusion for your students.
