Release Notes (2019-06-27; v3.0.121)

A round-up of all improvements and changes to the Buzz platform in version v3.0.121 available on June 27, 2019.

Turnitin integration enhancements!

We have enhanced our Turnitin integration to streamline configuration and grading, including:

  • When a student submits a Turnitin LTI activity, Buzz now displays the activity as "needs grading."
  • When a user accesses a Turnitin LTI activity, Buzz now sends the activity's due date, grace period rule, grade release date, and points possible to Turnitin. This significantly reduces a teacher's need to configure the activity directly in Turnitin, allowing them to just adjust the settings in Buzz and have it automatically reflected in Turnitin.

Updates

In this release, we:

  • Updated the Final grades screen to match the new Buzz material design UI. 
  • Updated the Activity Stream for Teachers and Observers to match new Buzz material design UI. 

Fixes

In this release, we:

  • Fixed an issue where modal bars were not using correct color.  
  • Fixed an issue that could prevent a user from receiving a “forgot password” email.
  • Fixed an issue that could display the wrong user's name for the person that deleted a course in the Restore Courses tool.

APIs

Updates in version 2019.06.26.3871.

  • ResetPassword: Fixed an issue that could prevent a user from receiving a “reset password” email.
