Two things to observe...your site for new ideas is overly busy and your word search feature does not align entirely with what is typed: I typed "color" so any entry with "color" came up, even though I could not find one that matched completely what I am proposing. Please make your idea site easier to use. My idea: currently only black type is available to post material in modules - no matter an assignment, a page etc. It would be great to be able to put certain categories of material to be posted in a variety of colors. For example, for assignments, I would like to be able to post the headings in red to make those stand out. Second idea: high-school environments are very different from college and what works for a college does not always work for the more complex set of circumstances in a high school (IEPs, 504s, multi-language etc.) For grading purposes, Canvas is very blunt - you need a number to post a grade. I would like the additional flexibility of posting a letter(s). For example: NS - not scored; TS - temporary score pending resubmission; I - incomplete, not scored. You get the idea. I realize I can put comments to students but being able to post those letters would speed up grading and provide a clear, visible explanation in Canvas...at the moment a blank conveys no information...did the teacher not yet grade it? Thanks for reviewing these suggestions.
