- Reviewers can access feedback after the review deadline
- First reviewer feedback (Dotank, beta and feature flagged)
- Overall improvements and bug fixes
Annotation flow smoothing
Due to the annotation flow smoothing, the usability of our tools has been improved. As of now, annotations are highlighted when they are opened in the sidebar of the document and you scroll over them, as shown in Fig. 1 below. Also, when you click on the comment, you jump to the right annotation in the document and it stays highlighted, as you can see in Fig. 2.

Upgraded CSAT surveying
After you stop a presentation, the survey will ask you about your presentation experience straightaway. In addition, the survey will ask you about your learning activity experience after a 40% progress instead of after a 66% progress (former percentage).
Criteria reuse dialog
It is now possible to copy only the criteria from an old assignment, rather than the entire assignment set up, when creating a new one, as shown in Fig. 3 and Fig. 4. With the possibility to preview them before copying, as well as an easy way to discard all criteria when you're editing the assignment (Fig. 5). This to improve, and clean up the copy of existing flow as previously used.
In addition, it is now possible to copy criteria when you do not have the complex rubrics feature flag on. Also, as you can see in Fig. 4, the rubric (beta) is shown inside of a dialog instead of in fullscreen mode. This enables you to stay in the same context flow. Finally, due to improvements in responsiveness, the editing of criteria in LMSs or on mobiles has become easier.

Removal of students who have been unenrolled from the course in the LMS
When students have not contributed anything to a course - no activities or allocations (either incoming or outgoing) - we synchronise the removal of students from a course.
Reviewers can access feedback after the review deadline
The documents and feedback from peers are now clickable after the deadline. Although the feedback can be viewed, no new feedback can be posted and the existing feedback can not be edited as shown in Fig. 7. Teachers can still delete the feedback if they want to.

First Reviewer Feedback (Dotank, beta feature flagged)
This feature is part of the EUR Dotank project. Students are now able to rate the feedback they received from their peers as shown in Fig. 8.
