  • Make it easier for instructors to find a quick summary of a student's performance and engagement in a course.


User goals
  • As a teacher/admin, I can click on a student's name anywhere in a course and get a snapshot about how the student is performing and participating in the course (based on grades and analytics currently available in Canvas).
  • As a teacher/admin, I can quickly and easily message the student from the drawer without leaving the page I'm currently on.
  • As a teacher/admin, I can go to the student's profile page, grade page or analytics page from the drawer.




The feature flag will be available in Beta in Late November and Production in December.
