Project I-DEA • The course cartridge for W’14 Q2 instruction is 597 MB. • All W’14 Project I-DEA classrooms will need to have their file storage limits increased so that instructors can successfully import the cartridge. • The Canvas import tool reports a high number of issues upon import completion. We are investigating and will send out a note about anything that requires revision. • Also a reminder that the W’14 Q2 Project I-DEA cartridge is available to all eLearning departments via the Shared eLearning Repository in SBCTC Canvas.
