New Features in Canvas 1/5/2015

Note:  this feature is not available at Auburn yet, but coming soon.  The Assignment tool can now be set up to differentiate between sections, allowing for better use of crosslisted courses. You can now set up an assignment for one section that will not be available for other sections, and that will not be reflected across the entire gradebook.

The Student Groups view has changed to make it easier for students to see what groups are available to them.

The Files tool has been redesigned -- in order to enable this redesign, go into your Course Settings, Feature Options, and turn on Better Files Browsing.  The Files tool is now designed for better display on smaller screens, allows for easier use of publishing, moving, deleting, and renaming of files.

The Grades tool allows for easier sorting by name -- again, this is a feature you will need to enable under Course Settings, Feature Options.

The Android app has received an update, focusing in particular on User Navigation and Course Navigation.
