Dear Chapman Instructors,

Did you know Canvas has some exciting changes coming to the Discussions tool? These changes are planned to take effect on July 20, 2024. Canvas created a short but informative video highlighting the new features that come with the Discussion Redesign.



We hope you found this video helpful in what to expect from the Discussion Redesign. We encourage you all to also check out this two-page overview created by Canvas and our previous blog post on Discussions and Announcements Redesign. If you can’t wait for these changes to happen, look for the option to enable Discussions/Announcements Redesign in your Course Settings. If you have any questions about using the new Discussions or Announcements, please contact us at
