All Treats, no Tricks in this bag of Canvas Updates
Canvas on the Go!
The new Canvas Teacher mobile app is now available for iOS and Android phones and tablets, and replaces the old SpeedGrader app. The app allows instructors to grade submissions, communicate with students, and update some course content from a mobile device. Mobile guides for the Canvas Teacher app are available.
Media Upload Assignments
Do you want to create an assignment to which your students upload an audio or video file that you can easily review in SpeedGrader? We have created a guide for instructors to create the media upload assignment and for students to submit a media file. This is the method instructors should use going forward, as the Flash-based "Webcam Recording" button will no longer be supported as of Dec. 31, 2017.
Enhanced Gradebook Features
Many of you have been waiting for gradebook enhancements and the first of several changes has been released! The Gradebook History page now has multiple filters, improved performance, and displays all grade changes in the course, removing the previous 2000 grade change limit. Upcoming gradebook changes can be found on the Canvas Community Gradebook Enhancements page.
