Course Home pages now display the enrollment end date for the user viewing the course.

Enrollment end date

Wiki

When navigating away from a Wiki, the user will see a prompt to save, discard, or cancel any changes that were made.

Communication

New Announcement

When creating an announcement, teachers can now create the announcement for multiple courses. Before, teachers could create the announcement for all courses or a single course. Now, teachers can select just individual courses to target their communication.

Also, the button to create an announcement is now labeled New Announcement.

Send Mail

Teachers can now Send Mail to multiple courses or enrollments from different courses at the same time. This will help teachers complete their tasks sooner so they can provide more personalized attention to their students.

With this change, some of the wording in the To: field has been changed to better communicate who the mail will be sent to.

General

SSL options

Users can now elect to use https instead of http when using Buzz. Buzz content is safe and secure either way as all data is transferred over https, but this allows for users to determine what works best for their implementation. Note that while using https, any insecure content from third-party sites won't display properly without allowing the content to be displayed through your browser settings.

People

Group by Course

In the People tool, teachers can now select Group by Course in the Options. This allows for teachers to view students from multiple courses but still have them grouped by the course they belong to.

Invalid credentials

Removed the "(click here for details)" message as it was confusing to some users and redundant. Users may still select the error message to view the details.

Style

Dropdown menus

Each dropdown menu now has a consistent white background.
