September 2018 Release

Content – Print/Download Function added to Overview | New

Users can now download and print an uploaded syllabus from the Course Overview area of Content . Note that if the d2l.System.Services.DocumentConversion.IsEnabled configuration variable is enabled, all document types except PDF will display the Download and Print options (PDF will only display the Download button). If the configuration variable is not enabled, only GIF, JPEB, JPG, JPE, PNG, BMP, TXT, HTML, CSS, and HTM file types will display both the Download and Print options.

Discussions – Create groups and section threads in existing topics | New

Administrators and instructors can now associate existing discussion topics to a new group or section during the group or section creation process. In addition, users can associate existing discussion topics to groups or sections not associated with any other discussion topic. Note that users can only choose existing discussion topics that have no existing discussion posts for association. This feature is useful for creating groups or sections after copying a course, or if discussion topics are accidentally created before groups or sections.

HTML Editor – Add quicklinks to content modules, submodules and course overview | New

Users can now link directly to content modules, submodules, and course overviews (if available) directly from the Insert Quicklink option in the HTML editor. This change allows users to insert quicklinks directly to specific portions of course content within any tool with the HTML Editor. Previously, only a link to the Content tool was available from the Insert Quicklink option in the HTML editor.

HTML Editor – Chemistry equation writing function available in the equation editor | New

A chemistry equation writing function is now available in the HTML Editor. Users can select this feature directly within the equation editor.
