Canvas session timeout setting

We are currently reviewing our session timeout setting of 24 hours. This seems way too long from a security aspect and I would want it set much shorter - say 2 hours.


This is a balancing act, as we don't want to time out users that are taking quizzes with long answers, taking breaks while working in canvas, etc.


We would like to get a feel of what other institutions have set their session timeout to and what feedback or problems that setting has caused.
