Content Resizing

If a File or Web Site activity is set to fit the content to the available height and width, the activity will now resize if the browser window is resized.

Modified indicator

If a master course has enabled "Show indicator for edited content in derivative courses" in the Course Settings, users now see a "modified from original" label when viewing an activity that has been changed in a derivative course.

Admins

Licensing

Beginning today, admins will see a new tab in the Domain tool: Licensing. Licensing allows system admins view how many total unique users are logging into the system and what type of permissions they have.

Tips

We are introducing a new help text style to better guide users in effectively using the Buzz platform. These Tips may briefly explain a feature, suggest ways to use it better, and/or link to more information. The first Tip is found when you create or assign a badge, but will begin to appear in other tools.

Manage Courses

Teachers can now better view and manage their courses. In this version, teachers can create, view, and delete courses that they have permission to. Also, when listing the courses, you can visually identify if a course is a derivative of another by its indentation.

Performance

Gradebook

Improved the vertical scrolling performance of the Gradebook when there are less than 50 students in the course.

Fixed Issues

Activities

  • Fixed an issue where printing an Assessment didn't always render every image. Now, when you select to print an Assessment, it generates a preview in a modal and then you select Print from the modal.
  • Fixed an issue where submitting an Assessment could fail if all answers were not provided.

Admins

  • Fixed an issue where no results for a domain selector was mislabeled as "No courses."

Clipboard

  • Fixed an issue where a rubric would not be properly removed from an activity after changing the Score entry dropdown to something other than "rubric".

Curriculum Map

  • Fixed an issue where the course title was not properly encoded.
  • Fixed an issue where a user editing a modal could accidentally close the modal just by clicking off of it.
  • Fixed an issue where some metadata fields would not display.

  • Fixed an issue where some searches would display an "input string" error.

General

  • Fixed an issue where domain or course landing content could overlap dropdown menus or modals.
  • Fixed an issue where math equations would not display in the rich text editor.
  • Fixed an issue where teachers and admins could not use the Registration Code link to enroll in a course.

Performance
