Updates to myCourses for Saturday June 4th, 2016

June 3, 2016

by Peter Doughty

myCourses by Canvas operates on a three-week release cycle through which features are added or updated. Academic Technology Teaching and Learning Support blogs highlights from myCourses’ production release notes, a link to these notes, and other relevant content in the days surrounding a production release.


Here are the highlights of the 6/4 myCourses Production Release:


Sidebar Button Consolidation in People: The “People”-page sidebar buttons have been consolidated into a drop-down menu at the top of the page.

Old view:


New view:

Syllabus Page Updates: When instructors view the Syllabus page, the Edit button has been moved out of the sidebar, which matches the placement in other myCourses pages. Instructors can also edit it directly from the “Home Page” view (if they have set their Syllabus Page as the Home Page.)
