Today: Canvas Updates Available Saturday, March 11

Canvas updates will be available Saturday, March 11. In this latest production release, instructors can add quick links to new pages in the Rich Content Editor and include the Abbr attribute for screen readers in course content. In SpeedGrader, instructors view a warning when they unmute an assignment, and when adding users to a course, instructors can enroll users by pasting CSV file data.

Students can better manage graded discussion peer reviews and see when a peer review has been completed. Additionally, students who can add attachments to discussion replies can remove an attachment, if the instructor also allows students to edit or delete discussion replies. For all users, the Canvas login page includes style updates for links and the Login button. This release also includes a number of bug fixes.

Please visit the Center for Digital Media’s website to learn more/view a screencast of the new features and updates:
