Canvas Updates

Canvas Updates – Week of March 9th

Important Notices – March 9th Release

  • Varied Due Dates for Combined Sections: Instructors can now add different due dates for sections of courses combined into one course.  If you teach a MWF and a T/Th class you can set different due dates for each.
  • Turn off Announcement Comments globally:  When posting an Announcement if you prefer to not allow students to respond publicly to the announcement, look for this option in the course Settings.
  • Turn off Editing/Deleting of Discussion Posts:  If you prefer students to not edit or delete their postings you can now turn this option off within the course Settings or from the main Discussions area.
  • Updated Interface: The look and feel of the Assignments Quizzes, and Discussions will change slightly in Canvas on March 9th. The result is an even more intuitive interface.  Additionally, the date settings for Discussions is now consistent with Quizzes and Assignments.  You can now pre-program a specific start and end date on Discussions.
