Changes and updates to be released on April 14, 2014Abhishek
Release rollout date: April 14, 2014
- Enhanced Collection listing for Instructors in “Pick a media” screen – In the “Pick a media” screen, Instructors are able to select a collection before selecting a media object from the collection. Currently Instructors can see only publicly listed collections in the selection interface. With this update, Instructors will be able to see unlisted collections as well, if they have access to at least one media object in the collection that they have view access to and if the object’s visibility is not hidden.
- Hierarchical Collection listing for “Select a source” dropdown menu in LTI tool – Today, when a user wants to a pick a media file from a particular collection, the collection is displayed as flat list under the ‘Select a Source’ option. We realize that the flat listing of collections does not provide the best user experience, especially if the collection structure becomes more complex at each Institution. With this update, when the user clicks on “Pick a collection” from the drop-down menu, the collections are now presented as a tree structure. This hierarchical representation will allow users to easily navigate through institutional collections to select a media file.
- Larger widescreen player in LMS – The media player within Blackboard, Moodle, Sakai and others will now be available in an increased size to improve visibility of the media file and player functionality. Additionally for Canvas users, the instructor has the option to choose a small player (current size) or the widescreen media player.
