A Slew of CoursePlus Changes for Third Term

February 03, 2015 | 1 Minute Read

In addition to the many updates to CoursePlus we've been blogging about in the past few weeks, a slew of smaller changes that don't quite deserve their own blog post have been made. These include:

  • Courses in the upcoming academic year are hidden on your "My Courses" page by default until the last week of May.
  • If an online course lecture has additional sections following the one currently displayed, a "Next Section" link is displayed below the lecture video.
  • The name of the person who entered a grade for each graded item is now shown in the Excel export of the Gradebook.
  • A reminder to upload slides for a LiveTalk is included for faculty, TAs, and instructional designers on the daily course notification email message on the day that there is a LiveTalk in their course.
  • Faculty and TAs can now see a list of all students in the class and the wiki(s) to which each student is assigned.
  • The self-reported city and state of the student is shown next to each student name in the faculty list of all students and their course groups.
  • Linking multiple files to multiple class sessions when you upload the files now works as expected. Previously, you could only link to multiple class sessions if you uploaded a single file at a time.
  • The "Files from the Online Library" section is not displayed if the CoursePlus site has not been set up for that course.
