February 2018 Update

My Course Widget

The My Courses widget no longer automatically pins future courses; rather, the widget displays results by current enrollments or last activity in a non-pinned state. Users can continue to manually pin courses as appropriate for their purposes.

If there are less than 50 total enrollments, they are sorted as follows:

- The My Courses widget shows manually pinned courses followed by current enrollments, then future enrollments (if they are available or visible to the user) for a total of 12 enrollments. Note that more than 12 if all the course enrollments might appear if they are all manually pinned. - The Course Selector drop-down menu shows manually pinned courses, followed by current enrollments, then future enrollments (if they are available and visible to the user), and finally, past enrollments (if they are visible to the user). - The View All Courses navigation drills down into the courses by showing manually pinned courses, followed by current enrollments, then future enrollments (if available and visible to the user), then past enrollments (if available or visible to the user) as the default sort. If the user changes the sort order, the filter does not separate pinned courses from other courses based on sort order, filters, and search terms.

If there are more than 50 total enrollments, they are sorted as follows:

- The My Courses widget shows manually pinned courses followed by up to 12 last-accessed courses. Note that more than 12 courses might appear in the widget if they are all manually pinned. - The Course Selector drop-down menu shows manually pinned courses, followed by up to 12 last-accessed courses, followed by all remaining courses available to the user. - The View all Courses area shows manually pinned courses followed by up to 12 last-accessed courses, followed by all remaining courses available or visible to the user as the sort order. If the user changes the sort order, the filter does not separate pinned courses from other courses based on the sort order, filters, and search terms.

In addition, there are interface improvements, including:

- Pinned courses now have a visible pin icon on the course title in the My Courses widget, similar to the Course Selector visible state. - The Course Starts message now includes a time as well as a date. In addition, the Course Starts lang term has been updated to Opens On, and the Course Ends lang term has been updated to Closed to better reflect discrepancies between course dates and LMS availability. - Newly-pinned courses are added to the bottom of the pinned list.

Quizzes

There will be a new experience opt-in for quizzes feature as of February 21. This feature allows instructors to see how the Quizzing tool will function in the future. This opt-in allows users to choose when to adopt this new workflow and visual overhaul. We expect the transition to the new quizzing experience to take place sometime later this year.

Additionally, when using the new experience, you will notice significant differences when constructing questions within the tool. The workflow has been updated and streamlined, to allow for faster question creation.

All existing features that were question related, but not the question itself, were set under a drop down menu, under Options.

When creating a question for the first time, you can toggle between new experience (the new default) and the previous layout by simply clicking the down facing arrow in the top right hand corner. Then from the window shade, select Leave It On, to continue with the new experience, or Turn It Off to return to the previous visual layout.

Also with quizzes, 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.
