New Canvas Feature: Student Dashboard List View

With the August 4th update to our Canvas system, the Dashboard for students includes an enhanced view of the To Do list. The enhancements will help students effectively manage tasks across all their courses. In addition to displaying automatically populated graded To Do items, the List view now:

  • allows instructors to add pages and non-graded discussions to the To Do list
  • allows students to add their own items to the To Do list
  • allows students to view their overall course grades
  • displays all current courses in an agenda view
  • loads incrementally by date
  • includes an alerts menu

Students can enable the Dashboard List View by selecting the List View in the Dashboard options menu (see example below).
