eLab Release Notes

Our eLab development team’s efforts are driven by customer input and a constantly changing world of technology.Sometimes new features are introduced in a scheduled manner, while other times they are rolled out on short notice due to customer needs and changes in technology. Our release notes reflect this blended approach to software development.

Release Notes (April 3, 2020)

New and Enhanced Features and Tools

  • New Moodle App. Our recently released Moodle app provides the same LTI connectivity to Moodle as to our D2L, Canvas, and Blackboard apps. Instructors can view the Moodle User Guide in the LMS Integration area under Assistants & Tools.
  • LTI 1.3 Upgrade for D2L. Our D2L app has been updated to the latest version of LTI, version 1.3. This provides enhanced security and allows for the transfer of both raw scores and percentage scores. Our new Moodle app also supports LTI 1.3, and we are working on upgrading our Canvas and Blackboard apps to LTI 1.3 as well.
  • Soft Delete Feature (Restore Courses). We’ve added a Restore Courses option that allows you to recover one or more entire courses within 30 days of deletion. If you have more than one course, use the Restore Courses feature by choosing Manage->Restore Courses. You will see the deleted courses listed, which you can then restore.
  • Restore

  • User Guides. The D2L/Blackboard/Canvas/Moodle app-integration, instructor, and student user guides have been updated
  • Terms of Use and Privacy. Terms of Use and Privacy Policy checkboxes have been added to the Learner and Educator Registration page.

    You may have been asked to agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy if you’ve logged in for the first time since their introduction.

Pest Control (Those Annoying Bugs)

Assignment resubmission has been fixed so instructors can set individual resubmission for a student without changing the resubmission date for the entire class or removing the resubmissions from the assignment. - Students are no longer able to duplicate the test page.
