Canvas – Template Changes 05/28/19 - Complete

Posted: 16:58:58, Monday, May 13, 2019   Expiration: 16:58:58, Saturday, Jun 15, 2019  

The Canvas Course Template workstream has completed testing and the following changes will be made to Canvas on May 28, 2019.

In response to multiple change requests, the template workstream has implemented the following behavior to match the default Canvas navigation, better align with Canvas documentation, and allow more flexibility in course design:
  • All navigation items except Conferences and Files can now be enabled as flexible, meaning that instructors will be able to turn them on or off in the course navigation.
  • Announcements on the Home page are still on by default, but instructors and designers can choose how many to display (between one and fifteen).
