Canvas Release Highlights for June 2021

Pen writing on ruled paper

Instructure will release updates to Canvas on Saturday June 19, 2021.

Highlights in this release are:

  • Teachers and other graders can save comments to reuse in SpeedGrader submission comments. Comments will form a library for the grader who saves them. All graders can reuse their own comments in any course or assignment within SpeedGrader. 
  • Teachers in courses with the New Quizzes feature on will see a new Item Banks link in the course navigation menu. New Quizzes item banks are associated with courses and include new sharing options. 

We do not plan to activate optional new features (Discussions Redesign, Release Notes by Role in Help menu) this month.
