CloudDeakin June Release (24/6/22)

  1. Manage Files: Now, the New File and Edit File options in Manage Files open in a new tab in the user's browser in order to support more efficient editing. By allowing the editor to open in a new tab, the advanced code editor dialog now opens fully.
  2. Rubrics: If teaching staff change the status of a rubric to Archived, now, there are no effects on the alignment of rubrics to any assessment activities or previous evaluations that were completed using the rubric. The Archived rubrics continue to display and can be used for evaluation. The Archived tag appears under the Rubric title.
    The Rubric selection dialog window now includes the first two rows of the rubric description to enable teaching staff to better identify the version of a rubric when its name is being reused for a current rubric.

    • A modernised user interface. This is a visual upgrade and does not impact functionality.
    • Scheduling options have been moved to the top of the page.
    • The ability to expand/collapse each section on the agent creation page (Scheduling, Criteria, Actions) to improve usability.
    • Two new agent frequency options: One-Time Run and Hourly.
    • The existing Daily, Weekly, Monthly and Annually options all now have a Scheduled Time option that users complete to determine what time that the agent will run on the dates scheduled for the agent to run.
    • The Subject line of the agents' emails now supports up to 128 characters. This brings it inline with the Email tool. Previously, the character limit was 100 characters.

    • Firefox 91 (released in August 2021)

The Today and Now buttons only appear when a date and time are required. The Today, Now, and Clear buttons are center-aligned in the date and time picker.
  3. Discussions - To make the Discussion evaluation consistent with the Assignments evaluation, this feature adds the Grading Rubric drop-down to the sidebar menu. This allows the teaching staff to choose a grading rubric when evaluating a discussion.
