A round-up of all improvements and changes to the Buzz platform in versions v3.0.258 available on November 18, 2021.
Coming soon to Buzz!
We announce significant upcoming features and changes in a standalone Coming soon article that appears at the top of the What's new section.
Students can personalize due dates for Continuous enrollment courses!
If enabled by admins, students can now specify which days of the week they want automatically generated due dates to fall on in Continuous enrollments courses.
Admins can enable this feature (it is disabled by default).
Drag and drop course ordering
Teachers and students can now use drag and drop functionality to reorder their courses for their Home page.
Simply click anywhere on the course and drag it to where you want it.
Additional viewing time required icon
We've added a status-bar icon to the Activity player that indicates when activities with a required viewing time are incomplete.
The icon disappears once the student has spent the required time, and a green checkmark appears next to the activity icon.
Updated Activity and Assessment password hints
In this release, we also:
- Fixed a timing issue where Excused activities were sometimes not displayed in the Activity list after refreshing the browser in the Course Home or Folder Home pages.
- Updated the options in the Multiple answer question editor. We removed the Show as drop down menu checkbox, and retained the Show inline checkbox.
Updates in version 2021.11.18.6676.
Additions, Removal, or Changes:
Questionschema: Added new attributes,
maxwords, to specify the expected word count for
essayquestions. These words are suggestions and are not enforced.
PutTeacherResponses: Fixed an issue where a response may not record correctly if some of the response was identical to the previous response version.
