Canvas Release: Course availability date enhancements (April 17, 2021)

In the April 17, 2021 Canvas Release, the changes below are slated to become part of the main Canvas environment.  

  • Course Availability Date Enhancements: In a credit-earning Canvas course, instructors can now choose to use term or course start and end dates via a dropdown in the course settings. Term dates specified by the institution are now visible in this same location. 

Additional features included in this update but not currently applicable to the ISU environment include: 

  • Multiple Attempts First Score Option: The Multiple Attempts menu includes an option to retain the first score for grading when multiple submission attempts are allowed.
