Canvas icon with update bannerCanvas Update: Status Check on New Quizzes

As a friendly reminder, you can still use Classic Quizzes through June 2024, at which point we will switch fully to New Quizzes.

The slow transition has been bumpy (and not just for us at Messiah). In response to these issues, Canvas has created a page titled Transparency into Quizzes Planning, where you can see what they’re working on and when.

If you’ve decided to try out New Quizzes early, feel free to reach out to us with questions and/or feedback.

Canvas Feature Request IconFeature Request:Set Multiple Due Dates for Discussions

If you use Canvas discussion forums in online or hybrid courses, you probably prefer to set a due date for initial posts and another due date for replies to peers. Unfortunately, Canvas only allows one due date per discussion. Let’s get them to fix this!

Please give this feature request a five star rating.

Note: You’ll need to first hit “Log in” in the upper right corner and use your Messiah credentials.
