Do you know if/when the new UI will be available for the free for teacher accounts ? Thanks.
tl;dr - The new UI will be turned on in production in FFT on October 10th
The new Canvas user interface is coming to Free For Teachers Canvas on 10/10/15
The new Canvas user interface (“new UI”) will be turned on in Free For Teachers Canvas on Saturday, October 10, 2015. You can learn more about the new UI by watching this video and reading this Canvas Guide.
Eager to get started? You can see your courses in the new UI right now by logging into the Free For Teachers Canvas beta site. To do this, just add “beta” to the URL / web address of your course. So, for instance, if my course URL was canvas.instructure.com/courses/1234, my beta URL for the same course would be canvas.beta.instructure.com/courses/1234. You’ll be prompted to log in again when you visit beta for the first time; your username and password are the same there as in production.
If you have questions about how to interact with the new interface, or observations as you get started, please participate in the All Things New UI discussion.
Karine, I'm going to tag Scott Dennis on this question and also direct you to this space for additional info about the new UI: ARCHIVED: User Group: New UI
I'm not sure when this will be an option, but let's check with Scott Dennis and see if he knows.
Great question. At this time there are preliminary plans to update the UI in Free For Teachers, however we do not have an ETA. We'll share more information when we have it.
Yep, more info coming soon!
Karine, per the Canvas Production Release Notes (2015-08-29) , the new UI will be enabled in Free-for-Teachers accounts "in the next few weeks." Keep an eye out for the next release, and stay tuned!
just great !
So, I'm trying to see the new UI which should have been made available yesterday according to your response. I'm not seeing the update in the features tab as an option to turn this on. Is there something I am not doing correctly?
Hmm, interesting. Let me do some checking and get back to you.
New UI didn't get turned on for Free for Teachers, across the entire instance, as had been planned. I'm checking into why and what the plan is now and will get back to you.
Thank you and apologies for the inconvenience.
Only 2 more days to wait !!!
I am so excited and my students are waiting for it too
