You can now add the Media Commons’ iMovie Training Modules into your Canvas course as a graded assignment. The modules are stored in the Canvas Commons and this tutorial will explain how to import them into your course and then change the point value of each assignment.
First you will need to log into Canvas. Once you have logged in, you will see several icons on the left hand side of the window. Click on the icon that says Commons. This is the second icon from the bottom.
Once you do, you will be taken to a new window where you can browse through all of the training materials in the Canvas Commons. In this window, click into the search field at the top of the page.
Type in Penn State Media Commons into the search bar. When you do, you should see two versions of the iMovie Training Modules show up. One for the Commonwealth Campuses and one for University Park. While most of the content is the same, it is import that you select the appropriate module for your class because some information in the first module will vary. Once you have decided which one you need to use, click on that group of modules.
When you click on the modules, you will then be taken to a page that will give you some more information about the package.
To import them to your course, on the right hand side of the page you should see a box that says Import into Canvas. In this box, click on the course you would like to import the modules into. Then click the green button that says Import into Course.
Once you’ve done this, you will see a green notice appear at the top of the screen letting you know that the content is being copied to your course.
When you go back into your course, you can click on the Modules button and the iMovie training modules should appear in your course.
To view one, simply click on the module you would like to view and then click the launch button on the next page.
You can also change the point value for each module. Once you have clicked on the module you want to edit, on the next page click the button that says Edit Assignment Settings on the right hand side of the page.
On the next page, scroll down until you see the point value option. Type in the amount of points you would like the assignment to be. Then click save at the bottom of the page.
