Canvas is updated every three weeks. Each update typically includes a variety of small fixes and minor improvements, but occasionally there are more substantial updates to specific tools, or new features added.
Highlights in the 2016-12-10 Release Notes:
- Course Auto-Favorites (Dashboard)
- Manage Rubrics Menu Placement (Outcomes)
For users who have customized their Courses list, Canvas automatically adds all new enrollments as a favorite. This change helps Canvas users locate new courses in the Dashboard and the Global Navigation Courses menu. Customizing a course list means a user has clicked the All Courses link in the Courses menu and manually favorited at least one course in the Courses list.
Canvas Community contributions: add newly accept course to course menu by default
Manage Rubrics Menu Placement
In both the account- and course-level Outcomes pages, the Manage Rubrics button has been moved inside an Outcomes menu. This menu will be used to add additional features in a future Canvas release.
