February 2019 Release Notes (10.8.10)
Each month, Brightspace publishes release notes with the upcoming changes to the LMS. I present here the changes that will impact our community. The full release notes are available on the Brightspace Community.
Assignments - Edit Evaluation Properties permission added | New
To support permissions for the Evaluator role, the Edit Evaluation Properties permission has been added to Assignments. Previously, the See and Manage , and Add/Edit permissions were required to modify most properties of assignments. Now institutions can implement the separation of responsibility to give specific permission to Evaluators to have control over evaluation properties of an assignment, and to restrict facilitators, educators, and content creators from modifying the evaluation properties within assignments.
All roles with the Add/Edit permission are automatically assigned the Edit Evaluation Properties permission. If a user doesn't have the Edit Evaluation Properties permission, Activity Feed still allows the user to modify assignment grading properties from Activity Feed.
Brightspace Insights – New visualization added to the Insights Portal Adoption Dashboard – Update
There is a new embedded Adoption Dashboard available in the Insights Portal that enables you to clearly understand how Brightspace is being used at your institution. This dashboard includes a new visualization:
- Tool Usage Comparison
In addition, there are improvements to the user experience and the release of the Adoption Dashboard in Canada.
