Canvas Production Release Notes (2017-01-07)

In this production release (January 7), admins can add an email address in the Help Menu, view future terms in terms drop-down menus, and disable announcement replies for all courses. Canvas authentication passwords also require eight characters, and admins receive a warning when attempting to remove all authentication methods. When copying a Canvas course, admins and instructors can also more easily find courses in the courses list.

 

Instructors can display recent announcements as part of a Front Page course home page and view the updated Rich Content Editor sidebar in Pages and the Syllabus. Instructors also have additional close date verifications when editing assignments in a closed grading period.

 

Students can view all available Scheduler items in the Calendar regardless of calendar visibility.

 

All Canvas users who have not set any course favorites in their Dashboard now view 20 courses instead of 12, and users can use a Move-To menu to move ePortfolio pages. Additionally, the majority of icons throughout Canvas have been updated.

Don'ts in Canvas

Description:

As the year begins, what 'DO NOT' tips would share with teachers in hopes that it will save them time, increase their efficiency and be more successful in using Canvas? Joe Montuori asked that same question last month in his post Dont's in Canvas? It received so many great responses and feedback that we asked Joe to sum up his main take-aways. We also asked Anthony Bunag, who had some awesome tips to share, to co-present with him!

Join us and share YOUR tips along-the-way, too!
