Updates to Canvas were released on June 4. Canvas operates on a monthly release cycle through which features are added or updated on the third weekend of the month. To see all the new features and fixed bugs, view the complete June Release Notes. In addition to the Canvas release, Information Technology Services releases updates to services and integrations with K-State Online through the month as necessary.
The following updates have been made in K-State Online:
- Inactive Enrollment Notice — SpeedGrader shows a notification when instructors view inactive student submissions. This change helps instructors know if a submission was assigned to a student whose enrollment status became inactive. Inactive student submissions can still be graded in SpeedGrader, but students do not receive any notifications about their assignment and cannot view course grades.
- Excused Assignments Grade Changes — The Grade Change log displays grade changes for excused assignments. When an instructor excuses an assignment for a student, admins can view the excused assignment as part of the log.
- Moderated Grading Add Reviewer Button — When an instructor moderates an assignment for grading, the Add Reviewer button is disabled until at least one student is selected for moderation review.
