Course Delivery Enhancements

Assessment Fill-in-the-Blank Question Enhancement

Fill in the Blank and Fill in Multiple Blanks questions now offer contains and pattern match (using regular expressions) as grading options for answers. Instructors no longer have to rely only on exact match for grading and manually enter every possible correct answer. Instructors can also make the answers case sensitive.

To learn more, see Fill in the Blank Questions.

Delete Course Files with Course Delete

Users are now allowed to delete all course files when they delete their courses. This option eliminates orphaned content for courses. Without orphaned content in the course's home folder, reusing courseIDs is more efficient since you don't first have to use the orphaned content report to delete the course's home folder.

To learn more, see About Administering Course Files and Course Files.

360° View Report Enhancement

A new column indicating if a file or subfolder is linked to course content, and if a subfolder contains files that are linked to course content has been added to the 360° View Report.
