More flexibility, please, to present assignments by type or date by default in a new Canvas course. When assignments are organised by type, such as formative and summative, students can clearly see essential information.
Ann, If you have a specific way that you would like students to view your course assignments have you considered using Modules? That way you can organize them any way you want and they will stay that way. You can also make it your course home page if desired.
Thank you for thinking about this, Kona Jones, we do use modules. This idea is to improve Canvas by allowing teachers to choose how assessments are presented in the Assignment section, an alternative to the institution-wide default where all students see all assignments by date regardless of the teacher’s organisation. Students could still choose to the list of assignments by date, using the tab; this suggestion is to give teachers the option to present assignments by type initially.
Thanks for this feature request. See also Assignment Page Default for Student View.
