January 2018 Release Notes (10.7.9)
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.
Exemptions - Improvements | Updated
This feature introduces an Exemptions Log Data Set and an option on the View Statistics page that allows instructors to either include or exclude exempted users in quiz statistics.
Intelligent Agents - Links to Intelligent Agents | New
This feature introduces a system navbar link to the existing Agent List page that users can add to their navbars and a link to the Intelligent Agents tool from the Class Progress tool.
Quizzes - Removal of confirmation buttons to start and submit a quiz | Updated
This feature updates the quizzing experience and now when learners click Start on the quiz instruction screen, they are taken directly to the quiz and do not have to click OK to commence the quiz.
When learners complete the quiz and click Go to Submit Quiz, they are taken to the Quiz Submission Confirmation screen where they can either submit the quiz or return to one of the quiz questions using the Quiz Info menu.
This feature implements PIE item D228.
