by Information Technology ServicesK-State Online Info graphic

Updates to Canvas were released on Aug. 5. 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 August 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:

  • Late and Missing Status Labels — The submission details page, student Grades page, and SpeedGrader display labels for missing submissions. Additionally, areas that already displayed labels for late assignments have been updated to reflect the same styling. Assignments cannot be identified as both missing and late. If an assignment has not been submitted by the due date, the assignment is identified as missing. If the assignment is submitted after the due date, the assignment is identified as late.

    • Submission Details Page — In the submission details page, the label for a late assignment has been updated to reflect the same styling.

    • Student Grades Page — The student Grades page includes a new Status column that displays the labels for late and missing assignments.

    • SpeedGrader In SpeedGrader, late assignments include a label with updated styling but also still include the current styling with the text, which will be removed in a future release. However, if an assignment is re-submitted, the submission information retains the existing styling only.
