April 2020 Release

On April 2, 2020, the Learn SaaS v3800.6.0 was released to production environments. Highlights of the release include: 

Ultra Base Navigation and Ultra Course View:

  • Adjust first day of the week in the calendar – Blackboard calendars will now display the most common convention for the first day of the week based on a user's selected language. 

Ultra Course View:

  • Rich text editor gets even better – Improvements include moving the file attachment function so it's quicker to access, adding a strikethrough font option, and changes that make the editor easier to read.

  • Course-level group self-enrollment – Instructors can now create self-enrollment course groups for any graded content within a course. Instructors can add a description for the group set, specify the start and end times of an enrollment period, and set the maximum members per group.

  • Auto-archive on course deletion – When a course is deleted, a complete archive package will now be automatically created.

  • LTI Preview User role – Third-party integrated tools in a course using the LTI Advantage standard from IMS Global can now distinguish between student and student preview users. This allows them the flexibility to handle instructors navigating the course as student preview users differently than standard student users.
