CITL created two Canvas modules and one entire Course template available in Canvas Commons so that instructors can import them directly into their own courses. There are two ways to access Canvas Commons. When you are on the homepage of a course, you can click the Import from Commons button found in the right navigation bar. From any Canvas page, you can also click the Commons button (letter C and an arrow) from the left navigation bar. Below you will find a link to a Canvas Guide that offers more detailed instructions.
How do I import and view a Commons resource in Canvas?
Student Survey-Are you able to complete online coursework? MODULE
The first module is the
Student Survey – Are you able to complete online coursework? – UWSP module. This module contains a six-question quiz and supporting resources. These resources will help instructors assess whether students have the hardware necessary to complete online coursework, provides some possible solutions if students don’t, and also allows students to identify that they have accommodation needs. It is very important that instructors determine students’ access/ability to complete online work before they spend time developing course components.
To find this module, navigate to Canvas Commons and search “UWSP Survey”
Using Zoom in Canvas MODULE
The second module is the
UWSP Using Zoom in Canvas module. This module contains information and resources on using Zoom for synchronous course meetings. The module contains resources for both instructors and students.
To find this module, navigate to Canvas Commons and search “UWSP Zoom”
UWSP Online Course Canvas Template FULL COURSE TEMPLATE
There is also a full Online Canvas Template Course is available in Canvas Commons. The template course contains a student support module, provides links to resources for online instructors, and has many templates for instructors.

TIP: If you create your own Master Course, then import the Online Template into it from Commons, you can then import individual components into any course you want to from your Master Course.
