Canvas Updates

Canvas's core functionality is continuously updated throughout the year. Here are some of the more notable changes you should be aware of.

FAS Course Template Changes

Through collaboration with the the FAS Deans, ITS, and the Poorvu Center, the FAS Canvas course template has been updated to include the Feedback & Accessibility Barriers tool in the course navigation as "enabled" by default for new courses.

The Feedback & Accessibility Barriers tool was recently updated in Summer 2022 to expand the use case for the inclusion of reporting accessibility barriers found in a course to the instructors of the course. Assistance is available in remediating reported accessibility barriers as needed through the Poorvu Center for Teaching and Learning. For more information on the Feedback & Accessibility Barriers tool, please see our support article.
