Upcoming Canvas User Interface Changes

There is a new layout coming to Canvas in the Summer I 2016 semester.  Canvas Dashboard and Global Navigation menus will have an updated look and feel with improved navigation.  Improvements include:

  • Left navigational menus
  • Collapsable menus to maximize content
  • Course Cards with activity icons
  • Customizable Course Names and Color Preference
  • Responsive mobile-friendly design

Although changes have been made to the interface, no other changes have been made to the system. Course Navigation menus remain the same.

Below is a preview of the new interface.  More detailed information provided at Dashboard and Navigation. This 6 minute video provides a complete overview of all changes.  Contact engr-canvas@umd.edu with any questions.
