In this update, the Canvas Teacher app supports section-specific announcements, user files, opening external tools outside the app, and a Multiple Due Dates label for discussions. SpeedGrader supports updating grades by tapping the Return key on your mobile keyboard.
Download the Canvas Teacher app in the iTunes store. Version 1.5 requires Android 5.0 or later.
Announcements supports section-specific announcements. Instructors can send the announcement to all sections, one section, or multiple sections in a course.
If you open a section-specific announcement from a notification that you haven’t opened previously, the announcement will incorrectly display as sent to all sections.
External Tool Access
External tools can be opened in a mobile browser by tapping the Open Tool button.
The User Menu supports User Files for instructors. In User Files, instructors can view their existing files and folders, create a new folder, and upload new files.
Multiple Due Date Label
Discussions displays a label for discussions with multiple due dates. Previously, discussions with multiple due dates would only display one due date.
Keyboard Grade Submissions
SpeedGrader supports submitting a grade by tapping the Enter button on a mobile keyboard. Previously, grades could only be submitted by tapping the OK link.
