New features

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.

There are some more features that you may find useful so check out the video at:
