  • Groups Page Updates — The Groups page design has been redesigned to incorporate the styles used in the Dashboard. The page displays all group details in a column format for easier readability. You can view this change when the new UI is turned on May 20.

  • Enrollment Invitations and Restricted Start Dates — When a student is manually invited to a course where students are restricted from accessing the course before the start date, students do not receive an enrollment invitation until the course is available as part of the course start date.

  • Concluded and Inactive Enrollment Setting Persistence — When an instructor enables or disables the setting to view concluded and/or inactive enrollments for a course Gradebook, the enrollments view persists between Canvas sessions and browsers. Gradebook settings are set on a course-by-course basis.

Classic Archive

Kansas State University relied on Classic for more than 15 years as the learning management system for K-State Online. While we have continuously improved this system, circumstances make it no longer feasible for us to continue to do so. K-State Online Classic is now in read-only mode for export and archiving of any needed historical data.
