The November 21 update includes the ability for instructors to enable the “All Grading Periods” option when using Multiple Grading periods in order to display total grades including assignment group totals. The update also allows instructors to assign “nicknames” to courses in order to better organize their Canvas Dashboard when using the new User Interface.  As a reminder, USF will begin using the New Canvas User Interface on December 16, 2015.  Finally, the updated features will allow students to view whether or not an instructor has graded their submission in anonymous view.  There are other small updates to Assignments and Settings. As always this release includes updates to existing Canvas features and fixed bugs.
