When you open the Canvas mobile apps, they keep you logged in, even if you put the app to the background or close it completely. This behavior adds convenience for the users and is typically what we expect from a mobile application in 2022. But many times convenience comes with sacrifice.

First, a big THANK YOU to all who have completed the CD2 survey. I was really excited to see how this number has been growing day by day, a number that shows a great interest in what we are building. The amount of responses will guide us in the product decisions to ensure Canvas Data 2 meets your needs. We are also using the results to validate some of our assumptions and anticipate future improvement needs.

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!

[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.
