Canvas Teacher Release Notes (iOS 1.25)

In Canvas Teacher 1.25, anonymous discussions are supported and comments are hidden for students on discussions with availability dates. Additionally, teachers can bulk publish all modules and individual module items and a Mastery Connect link is available in the User menu.

Canvas iOS app version updates are distributed in a phased rollout, which distributes the update to all users enrolled in automatic updates over time. The features in these notes may not immediately be available, but iOS users can manually update the app at any time in the iTunes Store. The Canvas Teacher iOS App requires iOS 15.0 or later.
