If you haven’t seen the latest in Canvas as of the end of January, then take a quick look at this video. Some of the new features include:
A quick snapshot of a student’s activity and performance with what are called Context Cards. Simply select a name from the people tab and see their snapshot.
Another useful option is the recurring calendar event. In this update you can limit the number of times that a repeating event occurs.
The student’s to-do list for assignments only populates with assignments that are NOT past due. Once an assignment is past-due, the student will not see that assignment in their to-do list. This feature provides less late entries and more accountability.
