What's New?

Category: Assignments

Feature: Assignments available to students by direct URL.

Description: When an assignment is published, a URL is provided for students to access the assignment directly (without having to navigate to a site's Assignments tool). This appears in the email notification to students (if sent) and within the event description posted in the Schedule tool. The URL is also available to instructors in the Settings page, if they want to copy it and distribute it another way.

Category: Messages

Feature: Email notification displays sender's name in From field.

Description: In the email notification of a message, the From field has changed to display the sender's name instead of 'CourseWork 5' so that recipients will be more likely to read their messages. The email address in the From field, however, remains a no-reply address, to encourage people to reply within the Messages tool instead of responding directly in their email clients.
