March 2018 Release Notes (10.7.11)
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.
Brightspace Daylight Experience – Ability to override system icons on the navbar | New
Administrators and instructors with appropriate permissions can override the icons associated with system links on the navbar. Clients using icon-based navigation can replace system icons with more age- or brand-appropriate options, or can match system icons to the look and feel of their brand and custom icons.
This feature implements PIE item D2133.
Grades – Bulk Grades Feedback | Updated
All remaining non-daylight icons in the Gradebook are now consistent with Daylight. The Enter Grades and Enter Final Grades pages include the following improvements:
- Column widths are adjusted to better match information within them
- Event log column is removed, and the event log can now be found under the context menu next to each user’s name
- Feedback column has been re-designed to indicate if feedback has not been entered, and includes a small preview of entered feedback for a user
Manage Dates – Manage due dates | Updated
Instructors can now edit due dates in the Manage Dates tool.
Due Dates are available for Content topics, Assignments, and Quizzes. A Due Date filter is available under ‘advanced filtering’. Due dates can be edited on an individual basis, in bulk across multiple items, and through bulk offset.
This update corresponds with PIE item D227.
Quizzes - LaTeX editor added to the HTML Editor | Updated
This feature adds the LaTeX editor to the HTML Editor in the new quizzing experience and in the Lessons tool. The LaTeX editor existed in the old quizzing experience.
This feature implements PIE item D4072.
