What’s New on Brightspace? (February 2018)
Every month, Brightspace will release new features and updates. You can get a comprehensive view of the updates here, but this blog post will give you a quick overview of what’s new on Brightspace!
HTML Editor – Advanced image editing
Users can now edit images in place (including flipping, rotating, and adjusting brightness, sharpness, and color), edit the image description, and edit the size of the image. Users with access to Manage Files can save image edits to the Manage Files area.
Quicklinks – Self-Enrollment groups link
Instructors can now insert a Quicklink to self-enrolling groups. This update provides learners a direct path to sign up for their group and a new Group Self-Enrollment screen.
Quizzes – Due dates available
due dates are available for quizzes. This allows instructors to better communicate when quizzes are due, and better identify when a learner submits a quiz late. Quizzes submitted after the due date are labeled “submitted late.” Quizzes submitted after the time limit is reached are now labeled as “exceeded time limit.”
