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. This release will be applied to our PROD system during the last week of November.
Highlights of this release
Assignments - Rubric Visibility | Updated
In the Assignments tool, rubrics are now positioned at the beginning of the assessment portion for an assignment. Previously, rubrics appeared below the Learning Objectives as part of a large list of rubric links. Now, additional links have been removed and the rubrics are displayed, followed by the assignment’s learning objectives.
Grades - Expansion of grade exemptions work | Updated
This feature is an expansion of grade exemptions work that impacts the Content tool, the Calendar tool, the Course Schedule, and the Updates widget.
Groups and Sections - Improvements | Updated
Previously, section enrollments were incorrectly determined based on the can be auto-enrolled in to groups or access all groups role properties in some areas. This feature includes improvements to section enrollments that are now consistently determined by the can be auto-enrolled in to sections or access all sections role properties.
