(This list is not all-inclusive. It only shows those changes that will impact faculty the most. The date the updates will take place changes from month to month. You can expect the following updates to be in place by the end of the month.)
Copy Course Components – improved copy content settings
The Content Display Settings copy the settings controlled by course configuration, including Content Arrangement and Navigation display options, and completion status tracking. You can access these settings from the Content > Settings popup window. Previously, if you selected Content display settings from the Copy Selected Components workflow, these items were not properly copied. This update ensures that the Content Settings are all copied as expected when you use the Copy Course Components option.
The middle part of this dialog (Content Authoring) contains user settings that are not included in a course copy.
QuickLinks tool no longer inserts http:// by default
The URL field in the Quicklinks tool no longer has http:// automatically inserted to assist users in forming URLs with correct syntax. The field is now blank before you enter a URL.
User Progress – Identify when learners access their courses
In the User Progress tool, instructors can now easily identify when learners access their courses. From the new Course Access indicator, instructors can view detailed course access information such as when a learner last accessed the course and the total number of days they accessed the course.
User Progress – Identify if learners download content
In the User Progress tool, instructors can now identify if learners download content at the topic, module, or table of contents level. Instructors can view download metrics from the Summary and Content indicators for a specific course. When combined with other content access metrics, this provides instructors with a more detailed picture of learner engagement.
