What's New in Canvas

Canvas and its related products function in an agile environment, meaning new features and updates are released into various environments as often as every week. The purpose of this page is to keep you all informed of the latest updates to Canvas products. Release notes let you know exactly what to expect for a product release.

Typically, updates to UTA's Canvas instance occur on a 3-week cycle. Major updates or impactful changes will be posted on this page. Some months may be excluded if there are no major updates. For a full list of updates, please review the Canvas Release Notes page. Older release information is available in the Release Notes Archive.
