Updates in the 9-17-16 Production Release

Updates in the 9-17-16 Production Release
Canvas releases changes to its production environment every 3 weeks, including new features, updates to existing features, and bug fixes.

Instructors can now view an alert in the Gradebook if an assignment receives an excessive amount of points and can also search for students by name when moderating a quiz. For all users, the Notifications page includes some interface updates, and Twitter and SMS notification preferences have been simplified; users who have been using those notifications may need to reconfigure their preferences. Additionally, colors are brighter throughout Canvas and also include grayscale options.

For more information, including a short video overview, see the release notes.
