New Feature Screencast (2015-01-31) from Canvas LMS on Vimeo.
Canvas operates different than other LMS platforms. Updates are rolled out every three weeks and applied on Saturday morning.
Here is the current schedule for updates:
You can view all of the release notes at releases.instructure.com. You may subscribe to the Canvas Release Notes and have posts sent directly to your email. (How do I subscribe to Canvas Release Notes?)
You can explore new features on our beta server at pittstate.beta.instructure.com. This server is refreshed every week, so please do not create content that you hope to save on this server. This is a great place to experiment with new tools or to try an existing tool that you have never used before.
To learn about new features Canvas is currently developing, please visit their new public site, Canvas Studio.
The CTLT is hosting a monthly Canvas Users Group. All faculty and staff who use Canvas are welcome to attend. We will discuss new tools and share how others are using Canvas on campus. All meetings are in Hartman 332a.
