I was hoping to get a follow-up on the problem of frequent email notices from Canvas notifications prompted by the Webwork LTI connection.
Currently a few, but not all students are getting 30-40 Canvas email notifications for updated HW scores that have not been caused by the student. That is the student has completed the webwork assignment days or weeks ago but the LTI connection is prompting the student that their score has been updated when no such change has taken place.
This issue was raised two years ago by me and Brian Walton responded that he was working on a solution in the Forum pages. Brian's progress can be seen here:
Unfortunately there has been no follow-up on this issue since and the problem still persists.
Also recommended in the Forum page was to update the course.conf file
With the following lines of code to minimize the frequent updates.
(Even though this action would be taken for the sake of a few annoyed students, not the entire class which is not being notified incessantly)
$LTIGradeOnSubmit = 0; # don't immediately update
$LTIMassUpdateInterval = 86400; #update once a day
Before I go experimenting with my course.conf file could anyone please let me know if there has been any other updates with this issue. And has this issue been addressed in the upcoming update with Version 2.15?
