Canvas Network's New Look

Blog Post created by katie@instructure.com Employee on Oct 13, 2015

By now you may have heard the big news: soon, Canvas Network will have a new user interface. But don’t worry! The new UI provides a responsive design that is even easier to use, so you and your course participants won’t have to spend much time adjusting to the change. The new UI rolls out on October 19, 2015.


Here’s what you need to know:


  • The Global Navigation menu that currently runs across the top of Canvas is now a vertical menu on the left (see below).
  • The Course Navigation menu also collapses on smaller screens, allowing for a more content-focused and responsive layout.



For even more information, check out Getting Started in Canvas Network, which shows the new UI in action.



Let a Canvas Network team member (Hilary Melander, Jane Esco, Katie Bradford) know if you have any questions about the new user interface. Thank you for all you do!
