Updates to Canvas were released on Aug. 25. 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:

  • Scheduler External Feed Appointment Details — For instructors using the Scheduler tool in the Calendar, the Calendar Feed link includes Scheduler appointment details in the calendar feed export. Appointment details include scheduled student appointments, the associated course, and any student comments. This change allows instructors to view all appointment details for a Scheduler appointment group without having to access Canvas.

  • Learning Mastery Gradebook Filter Options — The Learning Mastery Gradebook includes filters to hide outcomes with no results and hide students with no results. Selected filters persist for the course within the same browser. This change allows instructors to filter outcomes and students within the Learning Mastery Gradebook.

  • Anonymous Assignment Hidden Submission Details — When an assignment is anonymous, SpeedGrader does not display submission details until after the assignment is unmuted. This change helps enforce student anonymity for assignment submissions.
