New Features in Canvas: 2/6/2015

Canvas came out with some changes to various tools at the end of January.

The highlights:

Assignments, quizzes and anything else with a due date now have built in that the deadline cannot be set to past the end date of the course.

The Quiz tool now has a Quiz log function that can be viewed by both faculty and student -- this will help troubleshooting when students have problems with the actual tool as it shows what happened when.

If you need to change the overall grade or number of total points for an assignment after you have graded student submissions, you can now do this, and Canvas will adjust the given grades automatically.

Students can now more easily share a link to their private eportfolio pages.
