by Information Technology ServicesK-State Online Info graphic

Updates to Canvas were released on July 16. 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 July 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:

  • Customized Help icon — The look of the Help icon on the Global Navigation Menu has changed.
  • Sidebar assignment links — When an instructor created a new discussion or quiz, the page sidebar included links to create a new assignment, discussion, or quiz, respectively. These links have been removed from Discussions and Quizzes creation pages.
  • Send Individual Messages checkbox — In the message composition page, the Send Individual Messages checkbox option no longer includes an information icon. This icon previously explained the purpose of the checkbox, which has now been added to the checkbox description. This change improves accessibility for keyboard users.
