A round-up of all improvements and changes to the Buzz platform in versions v3.0.209 & v3.0.210 available on January 14, 2021.

Take pictures with the rich text editor!

In this release, we enhanced the Rich text editor to allow a user to take a picture using their web camera as an alternative to uploading an image.


In this release, we also:

  • Improved the Observer app Home screen to display and sort observed users using the Student-name Display option specified in the observer's Settings (the observer must also have teacher or admin permissions).
  • Switched the PDF previewer in the Grade editor from a third-party preview tool to the browser's built-in PDF preview.


In this release, we also:

  • Resolved an Activity grader issue with navigating to next and prior students in alphabetical order after selecting a different group of students.
  • Resolved an announcement scrolling issue in the Communication screen. 
  • Resolved an issue when grading a Practice activity where the question numbers were not always identical to the question numbers displayed to the student.
  • Fixed an issue in the Digital library where a course's domain name would sometimes not display in the breadcrumb.
  • Added URL validation to the custom Menus card in Domain settings.
  • Fixed an issue where a past course opened from the Editor > Syllabus would sometimes fail to show the course title in places where it should (e.g., the Add activity window). 
  • Fixed an issue where inserting audio or video into the grading feedback or dropbox-submission comments could cause any text immediately preceding the media to be deleted. 
  • Resolved a Gradebook issue where sorting options were not retained when toggling to quick-edit grading.


Updates in versions 2021.01.09.5349 and 2021.01.12.5362.

  • General system improvements.
  • DeactivateCourse: Enrollments in a deactivated course can now be updated if only the status is being changed to a non-active status.
  • GetStudentSubmission and GetTeacherResponse: Added a new attribute, inline, that tells the browser to use an inline content disposition.
