This is the easiest way to add the Introduction Module to your course — unfortunately, it's not the most reliable!
Navigate to the UC Santa Cruz Course Design Template in Canvas Commons
Do you see the see Course Design Template? If so — great! Skip to "Option B: Step 6" below.
If you do NOT see the template when you click the link, try clicking the link a second time. If that does not work, move to Option B below.
Option B: Search in Canvas Commons
Step 1: Navigate to the Canvas course to which you want to add the course template.
Step 2: Click Import from Commons, located in the navigation bar on the right side of the screen (on smaller screens, the button may be on the bottom of your screen).
Step 3: Click the blue Authorize button to authorize Commons to access your account.
Step 4: In the “Search by title, institution, name or tag” field, type UC Santa Cruz Course Design Template. Use this exact wording; it's very hard to find the module if you don't!
Step 5: You’ll see a module called "UC Santa Cruz Course Design Template" with a photo of students on a bridge. Click on the title.
Step 6: Click the blue Import/Download button.
Step 7: Select the course(s) you'd like to add the template to and click Import into Course. You'll see "You have successfully started the import! It may take a little while to see changes in your course."
That's it! You've now added the Course Design Template to your course.
Email email@example.com to request that the template be added to your course. Don't forget to include your course's name and code.
