This post summarises our latest platform release logs. Alongside improving our platform regularly, this month’s release focuses on our group feature and third-party apps integration. 

#Features

  • New: Enable a list of external providers to appear and be selectable for 3rd party integration tools to be usable in course creation.
  • New look and interactions for groups as we migrate old groups to include new group’s features and functionality. Same, same but different!
  • New: Allow institution admins to add and self-manage their integration services at the institution level.
  • Create empty Text widget with customisable text for users to use as a space placeholder.
  • Creating capability for SSO for Moodle admins to launch an OL course via a launch link to help set up classes in their courses.
  • Creating SSO credentials for 3rd party integration on the institution level rather than within a cohort level for ease of use.
  • Allow users to customise columns by renaming column names, re-ordering columns and hiding columns for Export Page Data.
  • Images on the page are exportable as attachments.
  • Survey results can be exported Updated groups permissions for “Conditional display” rules for contents and completion rules.

#Fixes

  • Fixed Assessment student names listing pagination now works for pages two and upwards.
  • Fixed 3rd party integration widget so it only appears when enabled.
  • Fixed unnamed widgets from crashing the page (although you should name them, future-you will appreciate it!).
  • Fixed admin and write permissions for admins creating groups: now you can delegate, share and collaborate with the other teacher about the groups you created in the same course.
  • Default progress setting on post widgets updated from “progress on scroll to 100%” to “progress on view” in order to right the wrongs done to the masses of hard-working students with missing progress.
  • Fixed notifications model to pop up and display when comments and posts are made on user’s subscribed pages.
  • Fixed completion rate showing 98% instead of 100%, now everyone can properly celebrate having completed their course!
  • Assessment Progress Page: Investigate and fix the missing Assess Me Now button.
  • Downloadable links not working for some students.
  • Fixed Completion for Any Interaction for MCQ Submits.
  • Fixed UI for cohort scheduling when cohorts changed from scheduled to non-scheduled.
  • Usability and UI update to Page Edit by making the Page View/Edit Toolbar sticky.
  • Fixed % completion on Analytics page Table and content missing from Course Setup Wizard “Promote Your Page”

#Operational

  • Tech task related to data linkage required for new course discovery page to work.
  • Improvement: Performance Upgrade with Elastic Search
  • Performance improvement by stopping loading of all enrolled users summaries unnecessarily on cohort/groups page.

Hi -I oversee the technical capabilities of our platform here at OpenLearning. I believe in continuously improving our technology to reflect that of our educational learning philosophy. If and when not at our HQ you are likely to bump into me at a local Cafe, jogging around town listening to a podcast, zenned out as a yogi, snowboarding or catching up with friends and family.
