December 2016 Release

Coming December 27, 2016! Changes: Announcements, Class, Progress, DropBox, Grades, and Quiz tool.

Announcements (tool change, look and feel, organization wide)

  • Link directly to announcements using quicklinks in any HTML Editor

Class Progress (look and feel, organization wide)

  • Dropped grades and weighted grade details appear on summary and grades tabs in class progress. This is more informative to learners as they can’t see the grade book settings behind their scores.
  • Exempted grades show in class progress. (read more about exemptions below)

Dropbox / Assignments (look and feel, organization wide)

  • Dropbox renamed to assignments throughout your course – menu will remain the same for now
  • optional email notification now available when students submit assignments

Grades (tool change, global change, workflow)

  • Exemption grades now available.  You can optionally exempt certain students from grade items.
  • Exemption grades can be exported and can be displayed in class progress

Quizzes (tool change, look and feel, global change)

  • True False questions now have preview mode to the right of the question design screen.  Similar to change in multiple choice questions in November 2016.  Question workflow remains unchanged.
