Canvas Releases

 

In this production release (October 7), late and missing submission status labels are only displayed to instructors in SpeedGrader, and rubric criterions can include a point range instead of an individual point value. Other small updates have been made in several Canvas areas including account-level Analytics, SpeedGrader, and the Assignments API, and several icons and styles have been changed in the user interface.

 

Production release notes also include fixed bugs.

 

Features are subject to change throughout the release based on user feedback and testing. Please follow the release notes for the latest information.

CanvasCon is a one-day, regional event that we’ve specifically designed for our northeastern educators. Everyone is invited, from the Canvas-curious to the expert user!

 

 

We’ll discuss hot topics trending in the Ed tech world and host Canvas-specific sessions. We’ve jam-packed the agenda with awesome sessions from educators, innovators, and thought leaders in both Higher Education and K12. There will be separate tracks for Higher Ed and K12, and plenty of ed-tech goodness—new skills and techniques, networking, collaboration, idea-sharing, and other fun—for Canvas users and non-Canvas users alike. We promise there’s something for everyone! Join us for a full day of learning and awesomeness or risk suffering in everlasting FOMO.
