CANVAS CORNER

Did you know…  A new highly requested feature, “Draft State” has been added to Canvas. Draft State allows content in Assignments, Quizzes, Modules, Pages, and Discussions to exist in an unpublished (draft) state. Unpublished content is invisible to students and excluded from grade calculations. Draft State is a Course-level feature option, and will be available on a course-to-course basis. The default is set to OFF. Since this feature can have a significant impact on your course, we suggest you initially only turn it on for a practice/development course, but not a currently published course. Draft State affects nearly every part of Canvas and is not designed for toggle functionality. Look for training dates to come out soon for the month of April.
