Changes often force us to adapt in ways we’ve never experienced, which can be a major driver of personal (and even professional) growth and development.

Request a Feature via Instructure.com

Canvas LMS is manged by Instructure. Canvas is not something Cal Poly can edit or change. Instructure's process for changes is for you to request that Instructure add features to Canvas. From the HELP menu, click on Submit a Feature Idea

Submit a Feature Idea

You will login with your Cal Poly account.
Search to make sure that there isn't already a Feature Idea requested. If there is, you can vote/rate it. The more votes/ratings, the better chance it will be added. Please see the Canvas site for more help

Current Feature Ideas to Vote Up/Rate

After you submit your Feature Idea with Canvas, send the info to canvassupport@calpoly.edu so I can add it to the list below to help share the link for others to vote up/rate. Rating is how you demonstrate just how important an idea conversation is to you. To rate a conversation, click the number of stars, with 1 being low and 5 being the highest importance.
