What's coming to Canvas in the Spring 2018 Semester?

New Gradebook: Instructors are able to opt-in to a revised gradebook in Canvas. The new gradebook design is based on several years of instructor feedback and features new options for sorting, filtering, and organizing your course's grade information. To enable the feature, go to your course's settings and turn on "New Gradebook" in the Feature Options tab. This article explains the new gradebook in greater detail: https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-13333-canvas-release-new-gradebook.

TechSmith Relay Canvas Integration: The TechSmith Relay Canvas integration will be enabled in all courses starting in the Spring Semester. TechSmith Relay is the university's new video platform designed for desktop lecture capture, video hosting, and interactive quizzing. You can learn more about TechSmith Relay at this year's CU Online Winter Web Camp, by attending one of our trainings next Semester, or visiting the TechSmith support site: https://www.techsmith.com/tutorial-techsmith-relay.html.

Updated Zoom Integration: While the official Zoom web conferencing tool has been deployed in Canvas for several months, we will be deprecating the legacy "Web Meeting" tool that was built several years ago before Zoom's official LTI tool. Going forward, instructors can use the Zoom integration to schedule web conferences and push notifications to students. The instructions for using the integration can be found here: https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/115004519146. Please note that our Zoom plan does not include cloud recordings, so the last part of this document should be ignored.
