Canvas Announcements, and Turnitin Maintenance
News for two tools
There are a couple of improvements in Canvas we want you to know about:
The Student View button is now located on the Course Home page. So convenient! (it's still on the Settings page, too)
And - for instructors who delay Announcements, your Announcements page now displays the "Post Until" date and time.
In addition, comments on Announcements are now disabled by default (you can turn commenting on for individual announcements, if needed).
The Turnitin plagiarism prevention tool will be unavailable 8 am – 2 pm PST on Saturday March 17 for scheduled maintenance.
Users will be unable to submit and grade Turnitin assignments during this maintenance window, so please ensure that any submission deadlines in your W2018 assignments are adjusted to fall outside of the maintenance window.
We are anticipating a Turnitin improvement this summer that will make it much easier to set up Turnitin assignments in Canvas and view originality reports.
Stay tuned, and Happy Spring!
