Highlights

Reports

User Activity

The User Activity report has been enhanced in various ways to improve domain reporting for audits and evaluations.

  • Admins can now export Users without Activity. This report shows all users (i.e., students, teachers, admins, observers) that have not logged into the system during the specified time. Users must have active and current enrollments to be included.
  • The Enrollment Activity Details (User) export now displays Time Spent in seconds instead of minutes. This allows for more granular details and better options for calculating in spreadsheet software.
  • The Login & Logout Times (User and Domain) export now includes a Time in System (seconds) column. This column calculates how many seconds the user was logged into the system for the particular session.
  • The Enrollment Activity Summary (Domain) export now includes a Time in Course (seconds) column. This column calculates how many seconds the student enrollment spent in the course for the specified date range.

Other Updates

Activities

Assessment

When printing an Assessment, questions are now always displayed on the same page as the available answers. Previously, if a question appeared toward the end of one page, the answers could have been displayed on the next page.

Discussion

Discussion activities now have pagination for more than 20 top-level threads. For each 20 threads, a page is added. Users can navigate through the pages at the top or bottom of the activity. This change along with some other enhancements allow discussion activities to load faster and perform better.

Sidebar Navigation

Users can now select the activity icon to navigate to the activity or open the folder.

Clipboard

Checkboxes

We've enlarged the clickable area of the checkboxes used for adding students to the Clipboard to increase usability, especially on touch devices.

General

Forms

Required fields in a form are highlighted with your theme color.

Home

To-do List

Similar to the Announcements, students can now collapse the To-do List. This allows for better navigation of course activities while temporarily hiding the activities that are due soon.

  • The Groups participated in: field in the Grade Details of a Discussion activity would sometimes not be aligned properly.

Reports
