Updates

Accessibility

Many updates were made to the Student and other apps to improve accessibility for users with a visual impairment. While many of the updates were under-the-hood, users may notice improved keyboard navigation throughout multiple tools and slight style changes to selected and focussed buttons and menu options.

Admins

Subscriptions

Removed a redundant "Search all domains" option when adding a subscription to a course or a domain.

Curriculum Map

Folder landing page

If a metadata field is set to be displayed on a folder landing page, a teacher can now delete any content in the field and have the label removed from the students' view.

This feature was suggested in the Agilix Help Center.

Performance

Grade Editor

The grading panel in the Grade Editor now scrolls independently. This allows for a teacher to scroll the student's submission (e.g., assessment, attachment previews) and keep the grading controls and feedback inputs always in view.

In addition, if an image preview is larger than the available space, we will resize it to fit into the view. Users can either toggle the Full Screen button to see the image larger or download the image to have the full size.

This feature was suggested in the Agilix Help Center.
