TLDR: Seven Canvas service disruptions in September caused problems for many users. We’re learning and making improvements to ensure this doesn’t happen again. This includes training, adjustments to our processes, and improvements to our technology.

Here at Canvas, we remain committed to diversity, inclusion, and belonging and to serving all members of the Instructure family. We have updated the icon for item banks and resources within Canvas LMS and Mastery Connect to a file folder to acknowledge and respect cultural differences. One small effort like this, can make a difference for students and instructors in our global community to feel seen and heard.

We could all (hopefully!) agree that students should not struggle to identify how they can be successful in a learning setting. So...how can educators ensure that students understand how to succeed and with that knowledge, have the ability to take charge of their own learning? Let’s dive into the powerful practice of crafting student and parent-friendly language based on standards, sometimes called learning targets or learning objectives, as one important answer to this question. We’re bringing the ability to create these statements that often start with “I can…” to Canvas as an “Outcome Friendly Descriptions” feature within Improved Outcome Management!
Our aim is to be transparent and supportive. In this spirit, I'm looking for some feedback.
We are currently exploring adjustments to the Classic Quizzes sunset that we hope will give you and your institutions more control over the transition. To help us with this effort, would you be willing to share your top three considerations or requirements for a smoother transition?
[2021-12-22 UPDATE: Migration is available in the beta environment]
In late December, “bulk” migration to New Quizzes will be available. We’ve conferred with the community about how multiple quizzes might migrate. When using one of those options, you may choose to have the quizzes and banks migrate to New Quizzes.
This functionality is being released to the Beta environment only, because we’ve made a conscious decision not to release it to Production yet.
