Improvements on the allocations dialog

Teachers are now able to do a number of new things with regard to allocations. Firstly, teachers can now switch the sorting order. Previously students and groups were sorted alphabetically. Now they can adjust this to their liking. Secondly, teachers can now search and allocate students or group names. Thirdly, teachers are now also able to search within the dropdowns. And finally, the teachers now have a wider window for the allocations, there are now three more allocation columns visible. The dialog now fits almost three allocation columns and goes full screen on smaller screens.

Filters on contributions in Interactive Study Material

A “Filter on” drop-down has been added on the sidebar of Interactive Study Material. This allows users to see only teacher or only student contributions.

Group synchronization option in Microsoft Teams

Group synchronizations can now be turned off for a tenant. Groups can be created manually instead of using private channels for groups when API is enabled.

Student Preview available in Brightspace (with LTI 1.3.)
