What feature options are currently available for Canvas courses?

Canvas is continually creating new features to improve your experience. The majority of improvements will be made available as part of our regular release cycle. However, some features may change the workflow for common activities in Canvas during your current term and will be placed in your Course Settings as a Feature Option. After a specified period of time, some Feature Options may become standard features in Canvas. Learn more about Feature Options and how to enable them in the manage new features lesson.

Feature Option Availability

Feature Options are enabled by your institutional admin. The following Feature Options are currently available for your institution as noted in their respective environments (beta or production). If you do not see them available in your Course Settings Feature Options, please contact your admin.

Account-Level Features

Please note that course feature options can be enforced for an entire account instead of being allowed on a course-by-course basis.

Note: Some feature options may not be available in Free-for-Teacher accounts. Please view the Canvas Account Comparisons PDF.
