A round-up of all improvements and changes to the Buzz platform in version 2.0.109, available on June 29, 2017.


Course Metadata

Admins now have the ability to create custom Course Metadata fields where users can record and track additional information about a course. These fields can be made visible to Admins and Teachers, or just Admins.

Clipboard Activity Metadata

Admins can now give teachers, course authors, etc. the ability to provide metadata for activities they create using the Clipboard. Admins enable the feature in Domain Settings > Course Options, and the metadata fields then appear in the Clipboard and Gradebook Settings.

Fixed issues

In this release, we:

  • [Accessibility] Updated badge images to display ALT text.
  • Fixed an issue that would cause quizzes to auto submit immediately after a student started if the quiz existed in a Continuous course with a Master Course that was not Continuous and had a due date that has passed.
  • Fixed an issue where an observer of a user would only appear in the "Observers" screen if the observed user had enrollments. The Observers screen now shows a row whose "Course" column has the value "All courses" when another user is observing the current user.
  • [IE11] Fixed an issue that would cause an unnecessary scroll bar to display while viewing a Google document in activity player.
  • [IE and Firefox] Fixed an issue that kept the Self-Assessment's tooltip values from being displayed in IE and Firefox.
  • Fixed spacing between the Title and Content fields in the Add rich text activity dialogue in the Clipboard.
  • Added additional spacing between Preview and Cancel buttons where they appear next to each other.
  • Fixed an issue that would display the the All [courses] option when a user selected a custom menu item that required the user to choose a single course.
  • Updated the score displayed in the Activity Grader's footer to refresh/updated when the user returns grades.
  • Fixed an issue that would cause checkmarks to remain in the Performance > Options menu when users clicked Cancel.
