I place a lot of good content in assignments that is beneficial for students to use and study as we approach final assessments. However, I hate leaving a graded assignment open for submission after two weeks. I refuse to grade work that is over 2 weeks late, so i no longer make it available after that mark. As a result students cannot access the content in the assignment because it becomes locked. But I would still like students to able to access the content in the assignment to help them study (whether they turned it in or not).

 

This is only a problem in the app. Students can see it through the internet view. However, my students us iPads and most of them use the app verses the internet.

Hi Claudia,

If you put information about an assignment in the description of that assignment, students will still have access to them after the assignment has closed.  For example:

Am I not understanding your request?

Thanks,

I see the confusion. In the app, students cannot access the description of the assignment. It tells them it is locked (my kids have iPads). But if you go in through internet they can access it. I didn't pay that close attention to it.

So I need to modify my feature request to state I would like for them to access assignment description through the app once the assignment has closed.

We recently completed a building-wide student survey. At the end of the survey, we gave students the opportunity to request a feature update or to suggest added functionality to the iOS app (we have 1:1 iPads). An overwhelming number of students asked for easier access to teacher feedback from the app, rather than having to go through the browser. This fits in with that request! Even after teachers will no longer accept work for grading, it is important for students to be able to go back and read content that is associated with these closed assignments and to reflect upon their submission. Yes, this is possible with web, but adding this functionality in mobile would increase efficiency for students and allow them to spend more time learning...rather than bouncing between Canvas formats.

This idea will remain in the open voting forum as an idea related to Priority: Canvas Teacher App.

*Being a related idea does not guarantee it is slated for development, instead it indicates that the idea is related to the overall scope and is being used to inform the process.

While this is awesome, this is also very important for the future of the student app!

I also have students who have asked to be able to review the description of the assignment after it has been graded.  This is important to help them study and review.
