I see that when a Student adds their file they see a preview much like instructors see in Speedgrader. Will this preview display annotated feedback when the Instructor adds it or will Students still need to navigate via the gradebook to find that feedback?
Hi wrote this in some other place too but maybe this is more accurate
I'm trying out student Enhancements in BETA and when I act as a student and go to Grades and klick on the assignment name the student return to the old assignment view. If the student then klick on the assignment name in the bread crumb navigation the student sees the assignment in the enhancements view. Why is this and will it be changes so that the student always sees the new assignmnet enhancement view?
Are you saying that the assignment view is different based on the page that is being accessed? Sounds like this is something that our support team can review and create an engineering if needed.
It is intended that some assignments go to the old assignment view if the assignment type is not yet supported (such as for group assignments and peer review assignments).
I thought the new student workflow submission was going to be available on the 17th?
@jborbon it's allowed now. Apologies for the delay!
In the FAQ information, above, there seems to be some copy/paste issues.
How do I enable Student Enhancements?
The New Rich Content Editor can be enabled by a Canvas administrator for the entire account or on a course-by-course basis as a feature option in Account Settings. This feature option is only available in the Canvas Beta Environment.
When will the New Rich Content Editor be available in the production environment?
A date for production availability has not yet been announced.
@tom_gibbons Thanks! That's fun. I made a few updates. 🙂
