I cannot seem to get a photo posted on the message board.  I don't see many with a photo so I was wondering if that function is working yet?

Uploading a picture from your computer to use as your avatar is not working at the moment. Please upload to one of the many image hosting sites (many of which are free), and use the URL to get your chosen picture in here. 

 

I hope this helps!

I filled out the surveys but it keeps asking me to fill out the survey. I even got an email today to fill out the survey. Is there any way I can make sure it has been saved? Also, someone mentioned assignments. I haven't seen an assignment board yet for the course. And haven't noticed any assignments for the first two sessions. Am I correct that there are no assignments yet? Thanks for you help. I also took the Noir class last year and loved it!

Hi Everyone: Thanks for your patience. I have been working through a few issues behind the scenes, but that is why I like to ease into these kinds of online courses. But I think everything is now resolved.

 

The syllabus link is now working - so check out the syllabus!

 

Week 1 Part Two is now live

 

Video Lecture #1 will be up around 9am Eastern time on Wednesday! 

 

If something still isn't working, then let me know! 

 

We will get it fixed! You have a superb team working behind the scenes to make this wonderful course go!

 

Best, Dr. Rich Edwards

Part 2 just showed up. Hope I am doing this class right. First time and not sure how to check progress or if there is anything to even check yet. Any information would be great, thanks everyone.

I never got the second part of the course intro either.  I guess it's a kink they have to work out.  And they will.  There were some issues last year when I was taking the Film Noir course and I was always amazed at how quickly they seemed to solve the problem. :)

I can't seem to find today's assignment (day 2).  It's 4:45 p.m. eastern time and I'm wondering where it might be!

I am having problems finding Day Two of the course.  There is no indication of how to access it.

 

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!

I just checked my dashboard on Canvas, and the course for Painfully Funny: Exploring Slapstick in the Movies has been removed from my student dashboard. Until today, the course was listed under "In Progress."

 

Why was it deleted? This isn't already a problem before the course starts, I hope.

 

Anyone else having this problem?

Yes, this course will be available through the Canvas iOS app - the trick is when it asks for school district, the first choice is "Canvas Network" - once you select Canvas Network, then you will see Painfully Funny in your course list if you have enrolled. Hope this helps! Let me know if you need more assistance!

I had it selected but it only showed "into the darkness" course. I found the slapstick course under "settings" but listed as hidden for the courses. A click on the course made it show. I hope this helps others. Thanks for the quick reply professor.

The Canvas forgot me and I had to revalidate my email and password. :(

Hopefully it has all been sorted out. Opening a course with thousands of students enrolled is always a challenge! But we are here to help. Just keep posting and we will resolve problems as soon as we hear about them.

I can not access the course from the Canvas IOS app, only through a browser . Will this course be available on the app, or only through a web browser?

Same here. This morning I received an email that the course starts today. I thought it didn't start until tomorrow (the 28th), so I went to check it out. It's no longer listed on my dashboard, but if I visit the course page while logged in, it does say "you are enrolled."

 

Yup, that's what happened earlier today, and I checked once again and that's what is still happening.

 

But it does say at Canvas that the course still starts tomorrow (August 28). I hope it does and I hope I'm still enrolled.
