Canvas Release Notes

 

Canvas Production Release Notes (2017-03-11)

In this production release (March 11), admins can manage parent and observer access to the Canvas Parent app and edit the default Help Menu links.

 

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.

Objectives+Learning Activities+Assessments = An Aligned Course

This is Part 2 of a two-part series on assessment writing (following on from Part 1: How Do You Know What I Know? Creating Rigorous Questions in Canvas). This event is intended for Instructional Designers and Higher Education.

 

This presentation, geared for instructional designers and also suitable for higher education, will discuss the importance of creating an aligned course. Attendees will be provided with an online tool to help generate meaningful learning objectives. Attendees will also look closely at the language of objectives to determine how to create aligned learning activities and assessments. Attendees will walk away with information they can apply right away in online course design.
