Deleting student contributions as a teacher
Within all tools it is now possible, in case this is needed, for a teacher to delete (feedback) comments made by students. This is done by clicking the three dots in the upper right corner of the specific comment.
Allowing teachers to edit contributions from teachers that are no longer enrolled in this learning activity
You can now edit the work of your colleagues at all times. This makes using copies of assignments and courses more user-friendly as it is easier to edit and improve the learning activities that were initially created by colleagues. This is done by clicking the three dots in the upper right corner of the specific teacher-activity.
Improvement in communication of supported filetypes
By clicking or some other file, a list is shown to you what file types we support. This accounts for all plugins that support uploading files.
