K-State Online November updates

by Information Technology ServicesK-State Online Info graphic

Updates to Canvas were released on Nov. 17. 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 November 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:

  • Embedded Image File Uploads — Users can directly upload a file to embed in the Rich Content Editor. This change allows users to upload and embed files without first having to upload the image to Canvas.

  • Screen Reader and Browser Support — Screen reader support has been discontinued for Internet Explorer 11 and Edge browsers. Windows users who rely on screen reader support should use Firefox as their supported browser. For full details about accessibility support, see Accessibility within Canvas.

  • Due and Availability Date Seconds Adjustment — Seconds for due and availability dates are recorded as hh:mm:59 if the minute value is set to 59 (e.g. 11:59 p.m.). However, any due or availability date times manually changed to a non-59 minute value (e.g. 11:30 p.m.) are recorded as hh:mm:00.
