We are excited to share new and upcoming enhancements inside the Canvas interface. Full details regarding these features are available in the Canvas Community.

New Features in Canvas Coming March 20th

Assignment Submissions Using Webcam – Students now have the option to use their webcam in the Assignment file upload tab. This update aligns the Canvas web version with the Canvas student app. Instructors can see this submission type in the Canvas SpeedGrader.

Adding New Quizzes to Modules – Instructors can now add New Quizzes assignments directly from the Module page. New Quizzes must first be enabled using the course featured options.

SpeedGrader Submission Reassignment - In SpeedGrader, instructors can reassign an assignment with a due date to an individual student and ask them to redo their submission. This update allows instructors to provide feedback and reassign the assignment to complete. Please note that some restrictions apply to this feature. Full details on those restrictions are available on the Canvas Community.
