02/17/2020: Canvas Community Feedback Recommendations

Florida State University understands that there is room for improvement within Canvas. Listed here are some notable ideas being proposed for Canvas integration. Please browse through each idea, and Vote Up if you feel it will be of use for teaching purposes.

  • Announcement Settings
    Places a settings gear on the announcements page to allow users to modify announcement settings more easily.
  • Grades in the Teacher App
    Proposes to expand the gradebook in the Teacher app to allow instructors to enter grades for multiple students from one screen (similar to the gradebook in the browser).
  • In Permissions, Separate Manage (add/edit/delete) courses into 3 permissions
    Separates the setting which allows users to add, edit, and delete courses into three different settings, so that sub-account managers and other roles can be provided with only the neccesary administrative access.  
  • Identify Hidden Grades in Grades and SpeedGrader
    As the Grade Posting Policy does not always apply to every grade for an assignment (depending on when the policy is specified), this idea suggests that Canvas add indicators beside each grade that is currently being hidden in the gradebook and speedgrader. 

Also, take a moment to review the previous recommendation list.

Keep checking in! There are always many ideas ready for voting.
