New Features in Canvas 9/27/2014
Probably the biggest change in this release is that you no longer have the Assignments link at the top of every Canvas page. This means that students need to navigate into a course or see what the Things to do contains, rather than going straight to an assignment without seeing it in the context of the course content.
The Conference tool now allows for recordings, which may be helpful if a group member cannot participate in a synchronized discussion or if you as the faculty member want some evidence that meetings have actually taken place.
You can also now set to show the email of a sender.
