Does anyone have a video I can show my students on the first day of class? Just to get them going quickly?

Hi Michael - (http://somup.com/cbV3DKMgJ) I put together a 15 minute video that walks my students through the MindTap access through the Canvas LMS. The course I demo is for Criminal Justice (of course) but you are welcome to use it if it will help.
What I might suggest is that you create your own walk-through video. All you need is some free software like ScreenCast-o-Matic, or iSpring Free Cam 8, both offer screen capture ability. Here are a couple of short YouTube videos that will introduce you to these tools:
Once you've recorded what you want to use in future courses, I suggest you save it to your Google Drive, Box.com, or DropBox, so you always have access to it. ScreenCast-o-Matic will store videos less than 15min on their server for free, as well as on your local system. iSpring currently only saves to your local system.
I think you'll see how simple it is to do a ScreenCast - but if you have any issues, feel free to reach out and I'll help you through it.
