We will move from 10.6.7 to 10.6.8 on December 16, 2016.
None of the fixed issues in 10.6.8 were affecting LHU
New Virtual Classroom
Virtual Classroom by YouSeeU will now be available within
the D2L learning environment. This will be *in addition to* Blackboard
Collaborate. The current link to "Online Rooms" under Communications
will be renamed to "Collaborate Rooms" and a new link named
"Virtual Classroom" will be for YouSeeU Virtual Classroom.
Instructors will now be able to link directly to individual
announcements by using the Insert Quicklin button from the HTML Editor.
Assignments - New Email Notifications
of Folder Submissions
When instructors create or edit an assignment submission
folder, they can now fill in a Notification Email field in the Properties
tab. This allows instructors to receive email notification when a
new submission is uploaded, and helps instructors manage folder submissions
and perform grading on recently submitted assignments.
Quizzes - Visual Redesign of the Quizzes
Instructors will notice an improvement to the look and
feel of creating multiple choice and True/False questions.
Grades - Exemptions
Instructors can now use an exemption as a reason why
a learner has not completed a grade item. Previously, a blank grade
could mean the student didn't submit an item, and a zero (0) could
mean either exempt, ungraded, or failure. Instructors cannot exempt
a student from a final calculated grade or final adjusted grade. Release
conditions "Grade value on grade item" and "No grade
received" will respect the exemption, and will not trigger on
the presence of a grade exemption. Grade book import and export will
now include exemptions.
