Canvas Update – May 15, 2021

Filed in Canvas by on May 11, 2021

Every month, Canvas releases new features, updates to existing features, and bug fixes to our platform. In this Canvas release (May 15), instructors can use an annotated assignment type to upload a file for students to annotate and submit directly in Canvas. This change allows instructors to provide a file as an assignment and allow students to annotate the file directly in Canvas. Currently students have to either print the file and take a photo to submit, or use a third-party tool to complete the submission.

Feature Options

The Auto-Show Closed Captions feature option allows users to enable captions to show by default in all Canvas videos.
