New Features in Canvas 11/14/2014

In this round of Canvas improvements, I thought the following may be of interest to you:

1.  Group leaders:  if you are using the group function in Canvas, you may have noticed that you can set Group Leaders.  Note that a group leader change only becomes effective if you make another change in the group, eg, add a person.  Group leaders can help manage a group in Canvas

2.  If you are doing quizzes through Canvas and have the problem that students leave the quiz page without submitting the quiz, Canvas just made your life a little easier as you can now select all outstanding submissions at once on the Moderate Quiz page rather than having to submit each quiz manually.

3.  Improved Tracking of student activity:  You can now see in the access report of an individual student when and how many times they have viewed the Course Home Page, Course Modules, and Course Outcomes pages.
