K-State Online Updates
Updates to Canvas were released on April 23. Canvas operates on a monthly release cycle through which features are added or updated on the third weekend of the month. To see all the new features and fixed bugs, view the complete April Release Notes. In addition to the Canvas release, Information Technology Services releases updates to services and integrations with K-State Online through the month as necessary.
Subaccount Global Announcements — Admins and subaccount admins can create global announcements at the subaccount level. This feature allows subaccount global announcements to be shown to all subaccount admins and users enrolled in courses within the subaccount.
Wrapped Assignments and Event Titles — The Calendar Month view supports text wrapping for events and assignment titles with long names. When this feature is enabled, a calendar item name longer than the width of the date wraps the content to the next line. Some events may create additional white space between shorter events on the same week as days with longer events because the Calendar infrastructure enforces a table grid for the entire row.
Courses Page Updates — The Courses page design has been redesigned to incorporate the styles used in the Dashboard. The page displays all course details in a column format for easier readability.
Scantron View — The Scantron tools for K-State Online continue to be refined based on feedback from faculty and staff. View the Scantron webpage for the latest information and most current step-by-step instructions. We are acting on feedback for improved quiz/answer key creation, more Print paper version options, better bad card/unmatched student resolution experience and a smoother workflow. We appreciate your feedback and support.
