To prepare for the possibility of Distance Learning, secondary teachers have two items they will want to complete in advance. Teachers should import the NEW Home Page Template and setup their Google Meets in the methods described below. 

Home Page Template Setup

1. Go to Canvas Commons and import one of the home page templates pictured below. 

2. Edit the home page with your course name, teacher name, and email address. Press the space bar after typing your email address to hyperlink it.

3. Edit the Google Meet links to include a hyperlink Google Meet link. Leave the daily schedule. To create a meeting code, simply type: http://g.co/meet/________ and enter a meeting code that students will use to access your Google Meet. Watch the video below if you need help.

The video below is from the 2020-2021 school year. All the directions are the same except that you will want to import the correct template for the 2021-2022 school year instead (see screenshots in step 1 of this article).
