Possible Tweaks?

Like many others, I had not used Canvas until the start of the lockdown, but I have found it very useful and remarkably easy to learn. 

I have noticed that a simple things might make the platform just a little easier to use:

  • It would be nice to have an auto-correct option when typing content into assignments, etc. 
  • It would be handy if the "Alternative Text" box which pops up when we add an image auto-filled to the file name (less extension) of the image we are adding, rather than require the user to type in that information. (Of course, the user could change it if desired.)
  • It would also, be nice if Speedgrader had a return directly to dashboard option, rather than having to click on the tiny course name to get back.
  • It would be useful to have a pause button while recording on the Record/Upload media function.

I have noticed from reading many posts over the last few months that Canvas seems quite receptive to making changes based on user input. Are these reasonable ideas?
