The same javascript and css files that I upload to modify the web interface don't affect the mobile app. Is there a separate API for mobile? I haven't seen any discussions on this subject.

Hi, is there any way to add Color in the Text Headers as used in the modules? For that matter can you format the text at all? I am trying to segment the pages in the modules and either color coding or formatting would greatly assist the student view. Otherwise seems rather bland and as we all know it's optimal to differentiate different parts of… (Show more)

Click to view contentUpdated instructions (not code) April 14, 2019. If you are seeing strange date and time, like setting your assignment to be due at 10:00 pm but it coming back as 9:59 pm the next day, I've determined the quick fix until I can fix it in code.

Click to view contentQuizzes.Next will eventually replace the default Canvas quizzing tool, but in the meantime, there's still a lot of development needed to bring it to feature parity. Here's what led The Wharton School to start using Quizzes.Next sooner rather than later.   Meeting Our Biggest Need One of the largest core courses taken by all undergraduate students… (Show more)

Click to view contentAs a humanities teacher, I love using the RSS feed for Announcements.  There are some phenomenal news feeds and podcasts that support a variety of my course content and it was awesome to have the announcements automatically appear in my Canvas courses.   My biggest frustration, though, was when I found great resources while navigating the… (Show more)

I am trying to use Formula Question in Quizzes to "build" a text answer of a formula that includes or not sections of text depending on the random value of a variable in the body of the question.  I see lots of examples of how to get a numerical answer for a mathematical formula based on random value of a variable, and have mastered that.  There… (Show more)
