Updates to Canvas were released on July 15. Canvas operates on a monthly release cycle, with features added or updated every three weeks.

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:

  • Assignment Duplication — Assignments can be duplicated in the Assignments index page. The duplication option is located in the Settings menu for every available assignment. When an assignment is copied, the word Copy is added to the end of the assignment name.
  • Pages Duplication — Pages can be duplicated in the Pages index page. The duplication option is located in the Settings menu for every page. When a page is copied, the word Copy is added to the end of the page name. Duplicating a page defaults the copied page to an unpublished status. All items in the page are duplicated including the page name, content, and options.
  • Observer Invitations — Observers can be invited to participate in course conferences with all course members or individually. In the Conferences creation page, the Invite All Course Members default includes observer enrollments. Observers can be individually added or removed from a conference invitation by deselecting the checkbox.
  • Canvas Icon Update — The icons throughout Canvas have been updated with a new Instructure-owned icon library. All new Instructure icons default as line vs solid icons. Icons have been updated throughout Canvas and the base font size has increased to improve readability.
