When users select a folder from the sidebar navigation in the Activities tool, a folder landing page now appears in the main window. The landing content includes any thumbnail assigned to the folder, the folder name, list of the activities in the folder, a description, and any metadata that is made visible to students.

User Menu

Registration Code

Users can now Enter Registration Code for courses that belong in a parent domain. This allows a district to create a professional development course in a district domain, generate a registration code, and share it with users in school domains to self-register for the course. This makes training and enrollment management much easier.
