July 2018 Release

Assignments – An assignment folder can be set up to receive a block of text instead of a file.  Instructors set whether a file is required or whether text can be submitted.

Course admin – Courses can be sorted and filtered by semester and the users role in them.

Homepages – Widgets will look different and will appear as cards on the homepage.

Quizzes – Question pools now support a preview where the instructor can hit refresh and see a random question pulled from the pool.

Quizzes – Image and text information will no longer be supported.  These items will be converted to section text.

Turnitin – The date issues of the past will hopefully be resolved.  Feedback for group assignments can be available to all members of the group and not just the user who submitted the file.   Turnitin scores can be auto-transferred to Brightspace assignments as a draft and then published.
