Canvas has added a feature to file upload assignments that allows you to attach a document that students can individually annotate. Please see the video overview of this feature for more information. Please note that this is not available with group assignments.

New  - Canvas Rich Content Editor

Rich Content Editor (RCE), a tool for creating and editing your content in Canvas on Announcements, Pages, Syllabus, Assignments, Discussions, and Quizzes now has a new look.  Canvas has rolled out a new interface which is now more intuitive, condensed and easier to use. Related tools are grouped together for easy access and application. You can enable this now in your course by going to Settings>Feature Options and toggling “RCE Enhancements” to “on”.  All courses will have the featured turned on by default after fall semester.
