UF’s centrally-supported e-Learning platform is Canvas. Instructure, the parent company of Canvas, has scheduled a Canvas release (i.e., a system update) for this Saturday, December 10. This release includes new features and updates to existing features. Among the changes are:
- Group assignments now supports assigning students to a group by section
- Canvas will automatically add all new enrollments as a favorite for those who have customized their course list
- When a user creates a folder or renames a file, the field will now include a check mark to save the folder or filename
Watch the Canvas New Features Screencast for an excellent preview of the changes in this release. UFIT’s e-Learning group is also available to answer any questions you have about the impacts of this upgrade.
