    It would be helpful for Canvas to highlight the changes made to a wiki page when viewing the revision history.  I often create a wiki page and require students to participate as part of their grade for a particular week.  It is easy to see which students participated through "View Page History", but if there is a good deal of content on the page it is difficult to determine what change was made to the wiki from one version to the next.

     

    When clicking on a particular revision history, if the change made from the previous version were highlighted in some way (different background or text color), it would be much easier to determine what changes a student made.

     

    Thanks!
