Every month, updates and new features are released by Canvas. To minimize the impact of changes on our students and instructors during this unusual semester, the new features released in April will not be turned on in Canvas. New features are currently under consideration for the summer semester.
The Automatic Course Creation for summer and fall 2020 is now complete. Course shells (except 900-level courses) have been created in Canvas. Student rosters will automatically be kept in sync with KSIS, with student drop/adds happening in near real-time. Changes to the course in KSIS will be reflected in the K-State Online course. To have a 900-level course created, contact the IT Help Desk.
