Hello Admins, 

Fall is in the air and hopefully the start of the year craziness is beginning to wind down. As the school year gets under way, take some time to take a look at what is new and upcoming on Canvas. Happy Fall, Admins!


Analytics 2.0 is on the horizon! This updated tool explores giving Teachers, Students, and Administrators the right info at the right time, to make teaching and learning easier.


Analytics Beta will now be added to your BETA environment ( on October 8th. As an admin you will then have three weeks to test out the new tool in your Beta environment before we deploy Analytics Beta to your Production environment on October 27th.


As mentioned in the release notes, Analytics Beta will be added to your environment as an account level LTI tool and disabled by default in the course navigation. If you do not want Analytics Beta in Production on October 27th, you can uninstall the LTI tool in the Account Settings Apps tab.
