I wish that the icons associated with the assignment type -- the ones that appear next to each assignment on the Assignments page -- also appeared on the Syllabus.
Taking a Canvas course as a student has made me realize that this important and useful information is missing from the Syllabus. Only if the instructor names the assignment well can a student see, at a glance, if it is a quiz, a discussion, or a regular assignment. These icons should be automatic -- as they are on the Assignments page -- and should be readable by screen readers with appropriate alt-text.
Please explain why this should not be the case.
Thank you! Erin
