Canvas: Student View Button, Rich Content Editor, Minor Visual Improvements, Quiz Previews

Implementation Date: February 17, 2021

This Canvas Deploy addresses the following issues: 

  • The Student View button now includes the text ‘Student View’, has been removed from the Course Settings page, and is now visible in smaller screen sizes, including browsers on mobile devices. 
  • The Rich Content Editor will now display embedded iframes inline and a download icon next to a file link. 
  • The People and Syllabus pages receive some minor visual changes to improve accessibility. 
  • Instructors’ quiz previews are no longer treated as student submissions and the option to lock questions after answering does not affect the quiz previews. 

Visit the Canvas Deploy Notes website for a full description of changes.
