Canvas is Getting a New Look

Canvas will be updated with a new user interface (UI) on June 1. The updated interface provides many added benefits to the platform, including:

– Updated look and feel. The platform has been re-energized with a cleaner, more modern user interface to enhance the user experience for students, teachers, and administrators.

– Improved navigation. The primary navigation menu has been reconfigured to maximize screen space on modern devices, especially on tablets.

– New paths to engage. The new dashboard uses dynamic course cards to provide an additional way to access important updates within the course.

The new interface can be previewed on the JCU Canvas test environment located at using your normal Canvas username and password.
