In "Edit Assignment", please sort the different due dates.

In a self-pacing class, I’ve created many assignments that are meant to be drafts toward a bigger project, and will frequently bounce the assignment back to the students to work on. Therefore I really appreciate that in Canvas you can specifically give different due dates to individuals.

However, after a while, it gets difficult to keep track of student progress, because these blocks of due dates are listed by the order they were created. Thus something like this:

It would be great if the block whose due date is Dec 2 would be above the block that's due Dec 3.

I'd even venture to suggest a different UI for due dates in general:

AssignDueAvailableUntil

 

Why list due dates in blocks that are organized by due dates? That's not how due dates work in a class, especially when instructors have to assign different due dates — due date assignments should be student-centric.

My proposed table layout will take out the extra whitespace between blocks of due dates, making it a lot easier to find a student. e.g.

AssignDueAvailableUntil
