In Canvas Student 6.8, the Calendar has been redesigned and allows the creation of to-do items within the app. In-progress BigBlueButton conferences can be launched from the Dashboard.
Canvas Student 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 Student iOS App requires iOS 12.0 or later.
The Calendar has been redesigned to update the interface. This change also provides consistency for the Calendar across other Canvas apps.
Students can tap the name of the month to expand and collapse the monthly calendar. Any items within the current week display as agenda items below the calendar.
Students can also add new To-Do calendar items directly in the app.
Note: Currently To-Do items created in the app only display in the Calendar; items will display in the To-Do list in a future release.
In-Progress BigBlueButton Conferences
Students can join BigBlueButton Conferences from the Student app. When a conference for a course is already in progress, the conference displays in the Dashboard, and students can join the conference directly from the Dashboard.
