Activating the Module

All currently available QEP modules will come pre-loaded into your FSEM’s Canvas course, and you will have the ability to activate the modules of your choosing. We ask that for assessment purposes, you use at least three modules from each skill area in your fall 2017 course. Everyone must use the Communication Theory module.

To activate a module, go to the Canvas home page for your FSEM and click on “Modules” in the left menu. You should see a list of all available modules (12 in total). On the right-hand side of each module and its content, a small cloud icon indicates whether or not the module and its pieces have been published. To activate a module, click on its corresponding gray cloud, and most of the content will change to a published status. Manually publish the module summary files by following the same procedure.
