One of the things I have come to appreciate about Canvas is how often I discover new ways to make learning more effective for our students. Recently, I came across a number of ways to save time grading, which really made me see how much Canvas’ SpeedGrader really lives up to its name.

Canvas Teacher App Gets an Update
I’m also excited about some of the recent updates to the Canvas Teacher App.
We can now leave video or audio feedback for students, without having to return to our computers to do so.
There is a limit of 60 seconds, which is not the case when recording feedback for students on your computer. Still, this allows us to be more mobile with our grading and leave richer feedback for our students.
See what else is new in this 1.1 release of the Canvas Teacher app on their release notes.
