Import Templates from PDC website
We strongly recommend importing the template into a blank course. This allows you to see the structure of the template as a starting point and think about how your content works with that structure. Need an empty shell to practice? Request a dev shell now.
Step 1: Log into Canvas and click on Commons on the left menu.
Step 2: Preview the templates to choose what to adopt.
Step 3: To import a template into an empty shell, click on the Import/Download button.
Step 4: A popup will open. Click on Download next to the template you want. It will take you directly to the template in Commons (if you followed step 1!)
Step 5: Click on Import/Download (right button) and chek the appropriate course shell. Do NOT SELECT ALL. Double check to make sure you have selected the right (empty) course. Then select “Import into Course.”
Import Directly from Commons
Step 1: Preview the available templates to see how they look. You will not be able to see their actual look and feel in the Commons. Need an empty shell to import a template to try it? Request a dev shell now.
Step 2: Log into Canvas and click on Commons on the left menu.
Step 3: Click on Filter on the top right.
- Under Content Types, choose “Templates“.
- Scroll down and under “Shared With,” Select “San Joaquin Delta College.”
- Click on X to close the filter window.
You will now see all the PDC templates.
Step 4: Find the correct template and click on it to select it. Then, click on Import/Download (right button).
Step 5: Chek the appropriate course shell. Do NOT SELECT ALL. Double check to make sure you have selected the right (empty) course. Then select “Import into Course.”
