  • Updated:

A round-up of all improvements and changes to the Buzz platform in version 2.0.96, available on March 30, 2017.


In this release, we:

  • Changed interval at which content activity is recorded for performance purposes.
  • Added the ability to provide Accommodations content when creating a new user in Admin UI.

Fixed issues

In this release, we:

  • Made many updates to the Teacher and Admin apps to improve accessibility for users with a visual impairment. While many of the updates were under-the-hood, users may notice improved keyboard navigation throughout multiple tools and slight style changes to selected and focused buttons and menu options.
  • Added alt text to activity type icons for improved accessibility.
  • Updated the Admin app to correctly display 'defaultPage.'
  • [IE11, Edge] Fixed an issue that would cause scrollbars in the Final Grades screen to blink when sorting by the Accommodations column.
  • [IE11, Firefox] Fixed an issue that prevented users from filtering by dates in the teacher view of the For Me screen. In all browsers now you can popup a calendar to choose the date to filter by (formerly you could pop it open only on Chrome.)
  • Fixed an issue that caused some content to be lost when pulling gradable items from the Digital Library using the Clipboard.
  • Fixed an issue that would cancel current edits to objectives when importing them to a Multi-Outcome Scoring course.
  • Fixed an issue that would cause the student list in the Performance > Gradebook screen to disappear after making changes to the screen's footer until refresh.
  • Updated the Status column in the Performance > For Me screen, so that clicking an entry in the column opens the Grade Editor.
  • Fixed an issue that would cause analytics reports from the teacher Performance > Activity Grader to export as .csv files even when the user selected .txt.


Updates in version 2017.3.30.2378. Learn more.
  • GetUserActivityStream: A new attribute, types, to filter the type of entries returned in the request.
  • CopyItems: Items newly copied will begin to have a sourceid and sourceitemid if the course was copied from one course to another. This allows an item to be traced to where it came from.
  • GetDomainSetttings: The response now includes domainid.
