In addition to the regularly scheduled monthly release, Canvas has released weekly feature options designed to provide immediate solutions to institutions facing COVID-19. This document will summarize the features from the release that UW-System will implement.

New and Enhanced Features

Students are notified when comments have been added in DocViewer. This change helps students know when their instructor or TA has added comments in a DocViewer-supported document.

User Course Access Log
User Role: Admin

The Reports page includes the User Course Access Log report. This change provides a basic account-level report that provides admins with key usage data in monitoring and reporting student online engagement.
