Let’s just start in medias res because I am pretty sure that most of you are curious about not just the state of the Canvas Data 2 but also about what comes next (and why it didn’t come yet).

The questions I expect you might be wondering about are: 

  • What are the next steps after we started the early access and the actual state?
  • When will we make it available for more customers and what features will it include initially?
  • When are we planning to deprecate CD1?

Coming soon: Modules Shortcut Link to the New Quizzes Build page.  This post previews what you can expect.

Instructure is proud of our partnerships and ability to work with other third party vendors so that you have access to a wide variety of tools. New Quizzes strives for that same standard — however, in its current state, the only Instructure supported third party proctoring tool is Respondus Lockdown Browser. Of course, we have plans to expand third party usage. This post outlines the current state, why we support what we do now, and what to expect in the not too distant future.

When I think about education and what it means to me, one word irrevocably comes to my mind which is “Ikigai”—the Japanese word referring to something that gives a person a sense of purpose. Let's talk about Ikigal in your world and mine.

Instructure has a long history of opening the systems we build to extension and enhancement.  When we build products like Canvas, we want to make sure they work well for ALL our customers. After a long series of forays and experiments examining whether or not GraphQL can help us improve our API development experience, we think the answer is “yes”.  Therefore over the next couple years Canvas will be migrating its venerable API in that direction with the goal of greatly simplifying what it means to build with Canvas

Printing options will be available in New Quizzes soon. We’re pretty clear on teacher needs and use cases thanks to the extensive feedback the community has provided. (We’re really focusing on high impact changes now!!) Also, although it sounds like it isn’t as critical, we're hearing that a simplified workflow for students to print might be desirable -- assuming teachers have full control of such a tool’s availability.

 I’m interested to hear your thoughts regarding the value of or concerns with adding teacher settings to allow students to print.

Fixed bugs have been included in the deploy notes since, well—the creation of the deploy notes. And for the last few years, the “Known Issues” board in the Community has only included notable bugs, which didn’t always align with the bugs posted in the deploy notes. 

It’s time to evolve our process for greater clarity, and this time we’re putting our focus into our Known Issues board to give you more timely updates when you need them.
