  • The word “Meeting” has been changed to “Event” in the sign-up tool as this was felt to be more appropriate
  • We have removed the huge gaps between paragraphs in the Syllabus tool
  • One is now able to submit .PPTX (PowerPoint) files to Turnitin-enabled Assignments
  • Reading Lists (ORLiMS) – the SOLO ‘pop-up’ window which appears when one opts to search the library catalogue is now wider so there are no sideways scroll bars
  • Non logged in users can no longer see ‘publish (private)’ button on Calendars
  • New REST web service end point added to Hierarchy Service – this allows sub sites of the current site to be returned in JSON format
  • All Hierarchy Tools are now located in the main Tools menu – this is to prepare us for the move to WebLearn 11
  • Site Info now has a ‘search users’ facility (User Voice request)
  • Lessons Tool improvements (as part of the WISE project)
    • added a new component to show the latest Announcements (cf Home page Announcements display)
    • added a new component to display a Twitter Timeline (User Voice request)
    • added a new component to show a site Calendar (cf Home page Calendar display)
    • a Google document can now be embedded on a page within an iFrame
