Canvas Updates – October 17th, 2020

Filed in Canvas, updates by on October 7, 2020

Every month, Canvas releases new features, updates to existing features, and bug fixes to our platform. In this Canvas release (Oct 17th), users can view a list of recently visited pages in the Global Navigation Menu. Additionally, the user-level and course-level notification pages have been updated for design simplification in managing notifications in each location.

Recent History Icon

We’re getting a new Global Navigation icon, “History” which will show users a list of recently visited pages in Canvas.

Notification Preferences Interface Updates

The user-level Notifications page has been updated to match the design of the course-level Notifications page. This page includes a banner reminding users that account-level notifications apply to all courses.

MathJax Equation Improvements 

The MathJax JS library has been improved to render equations in a more accessible format and promote ease of use. Math equations created anywhere in Canvas will be rendered as MathML.
