I couldn't find the final exam for the Painfully Funny course at Canvas this afternoon. When I click on the link at the end of Module 6.1, it takes me to the User Experience Survey, not the final exam. Is anyone else having this problem? If it isn't a problem, when will the final exam be available? I didn't see any updates to Canvas about the exam's availability. Thanks!

 

Hi Marianne, it is fixed now - the final exam is up. Thanks for letting me know. Best, Rich

Thanks for these comments. I had the video editor re-do the audio on the Wes Gehring - please listen to them again - I just posted new versions of those videos late on Wednesday afternoon - the sound levels are much, much improved and you can hear him speak clearly now.

Best, Dr. E.



Apologies that this reply is very late as I am just seeing this. This is a delayed thanks as I definitely noticed as vast improvement in the audio quality.

In my email inbox  on Canvas it says on the left of the screen I have a message. I go to the email folder and nothing comes up in inbox or unread or anything. Anyone know how to see email messages on Canvas?

 

Hi SKS, the only messages I am aware of are in the "Inbox" which is one of the link choices in the student menu. If you are not seeing a message in there, then I am not sure what is happening. You can always submit a help ticket to Canvas and they might be able to troubleshoot what happened.

 

Hope this helps, 

Rich Edwards

Trying to listen to the Wes Gehring interviews can barely hear a single word with the volume completely up.

Adding captions would help a lot!

Good evening.
I took the first quiz without incident and was scored immediately.

The next time I logged on, my Dashboard says I have no enrollments.

 

I am able to hop to any of the other pages via the history on my pc and they're fine.  It does show the current time as well as my quiz score from earlier, so I guess I'm not too concerned... as long as I'm still enrolled, which I guess I am as is does offer the "drop this course" option. lol

 

Just letting you know about the odd wrinkle.

 

Thanks so much.

 

Have a great, safe weekend!

Has anyone else run into a problem playing ANY video programming from the TCM website? I've tried disabling my adblocker and tried three different browsers. I've contacted TCM about it, but I don't expect I'll hear from them soon. If anyone has any knowledge on this problem I would appreciate some input. Thank you! In the meantime there will be Daily Doses for me.  :(

 

Hi Bandwife: I am happy to try to troubleshoot. Another student had a similar problem, and it turned out to be the ad blocking software. But if it is not that, it might be the need for an updated Flash plug-in. If it is neither of those things, can you send me a screenshot of what is happening on your screen so that I can send that to TCM for further troubleshooting.

I haven't seen Day Two's assignment yet either, but it's probably because Dr. Richard Edwards hasn't posted it yet. It's 3:11 p.m., my time, so there's nine hours left. And if Dr. Edwards is not on the eastern coast of the United States (and he's likely not if he's in Indiana), then he has even more time!

Actually, most of Indiana, including Muncie where Ball State is located, is on Eastern time.  There is only a couple of parts in the western part of the state that is in Central time.

I have taken the Welcome Survey and I believe I have submitted it correctly, but the Canvas Dashboard doesn't show that I have submitted it. Is this because the Welcome Survey is not a requirement of the Slapstick course itself?

 

This is a minor point compared to other complaints by other course takers, but I am wondering if this will affect the way my quizzes and the final exam are submitted through Canvas.

Hello

 

The Vimo produced lecture clips dont have sound when I play them back even when  downloaded and using another player. I am  using the cursed chrome browser which has been updated.  I  understand its  silent film comedy at the begining perhaps not for the lectures. Nice  touch would be  title  cards.

 

Anyone else have  the  silent  scream troubles that I  do?????

I cannot get the 

 Golden Age Of Comedy, The (1957) -- (Movie Clip) The Laugh Factory

clip to work for the Daily Dose 1 that I received through my email.  Is there another place in the class pages that I can go to watch it?  Thank you.

 

Yes, it is now up at the Canvas course - enrolled students can access the clip through this page: https://learn.canvas...y-dose-of-doozy

 

Also, on the front page of Canvas, the fifth button down the list, Daily Dose of Doozy (the light teal button) gets you there too!
