We will move from 10.6.2 to 10.6.3 on July 22, 2016.
None of the fixed issues in 10.6.3 were affecting LHU
Assignment Grader App - New Display
Brightspace Assignment Grader now has a display option
that allows users to view only those courses that have at least one
associated Assignment submission folder. The option is called Hide
Courses with no Assignments and when selected, allows instructors
to find courses with assginment submission more quickly and easily.
Discussions - Copy Discussion Thread
Instructors can now optionally select discussion thread
replies when copying a discussion thread from one discussion topic
to another. This ability comes in handy if you accidentally create
a discussion topic under the wrong forum, and students have already
replied to the incorrectly-located topic.
Discussions - Show Forum Description
in Child Topics
Instructors now have the ability to display the forum
description within a discussion topic description. Some instructors
add assignment instructions as the description of the discussion forum,
but this information is not available within the discussion topics,
only on the discussions list page. Allowing the discussion forum description
to appear within discussion topics helps avoid duplicated effort by
the instructors who might post common instructions in each discussion
topic's description as well. This is especially helpful in group discussions,
where the topic description is usually duplicated (manually) for each
discussion topic. This is simply a new checkbox under Edit Forum.
Video Note 2.0/Audio Note 2.0 - No
Video Note 2.0 has removed dependencies on Flash technology
and now uses HTML5. It does revert to Flash when it detects an older
browser without HTML5 support. Audio Note 2.0 replaces Audio Recorder
in Brightspace. Audio Note 2.0 creates MP3 files instead of WAV files,
and Flash technology is no longer required.
