There was a brief Canvas outage on April 28 beginning at 7:55 p.m. through 8:10 p.m. During this time, Canvas was slow or non-responsive while technicians from Instructure worked to resolve this problem.
On Monday, May 20, Instructure released a new gradebook for Canvas that will have many new features. Although many of the core gradebook features will remain the same, some functions will move to a different location or change the look of the icons.
Please note that users of Turnitin may have been unable to make/view submissions and experienced delays to Similarity Report generation, as a result of a service outage that lasted from 4/7/2019 at 10:00pm until 4/8/2019 at 5:20am. The situation has been resolved.
Canvas now includes an option to view all course tasks in a List View for students. In addition to displaying automatically populated items from assignments, the List View allows instructors and students to add non-graded items to the To-Do list.
New features are added to Respondus Monitor almost monthly. Features added in February include facial detection before the exam, facial detection alerts during an exam, and pre-exam tips for a successful exam session.
Turnitin users are continuing to experiencing slow submission/report generation times and some users may be unable to submit larger files. Turnitin engineers are working hard to resolve this for all our users.
