For private courses, administrators are now able to set a visible start and end date for the course website and all associated events. Learners will only be given access to course materials at a defined time.  

Improved Discussions Experience

Threaded discussion pages are now available in Communities. Learners and Faculty may now reply to a reply.

Improved Evaluation Privacy and Security
Contributed by the Elentra Corp.

Individual completed evaluation tasks may now be restricted. This function may be turned on using new optional database setting. Organizations can optionally allow specific users to view completed individual evaluation tasks by adding them to a database field.

Improved Visibility of Tasks Awaiting Completion
Contributed by the Northern Ontario School of Medicine

In recognition of the frequent request by learners to view tasks they have initiated but are not yet completed by an assessor, NOSM built a view to display this information. Currently, learners will not be able to send reminders for these tasks, nor will they be able to view the task data (since it is in draft mode), but they can feel confident that the task has been generated and is awaiting action from the assessor.

A new integration is available that will support Respondus LockDown Browser as a security option for exam posts.
