Canvas Update – October 27, 2018

Filed in Canvas, updates by on October 25, 2018

Every 3 weeks, Canvas releases new features, updates to existing features, and bug fixes to our platform. In this Canvas release (October 27), the List View Dashboard displays a summary for course events, and course links within the Grades menu direct to the Grades page instead of the home page.

Additionally, in the Card View and Recent Activity Dashboard sidebars and the Course Home Page sidebar, the Coming Up section has been removed for students. In both the dashboards and sidebars, the Pages icon has been updated.

Feature Options

  • For institutions using Anonymous Grading, student names do not display in the Gradebook History if an assignment was graded anonymously.
  • For institutions using the New Gradebook, the search filter supports searching by SIS ID.
  • For institutions using Moderated Grading, graders can access SpeedGrader in a read-only state after the maximum number of graders for a moderated assignment has been reached.
  • For institutions using Student Context Cards, cards display initials for students without profile pictures.

External Tools (LTI)

  • For institutions using the Google Apps and Microsoft Office 365 LTIs, students and instructors can view the status of assignment submission file uploads.
