Changes

Announcements

When you create an announcement you can now select the Display Author Information option. When you turn this feature on, your name will appear next to the publication date of the Annoucement. Students will then know who published the Announcement.

Chat feature

From now on it is possible to add a chat feature to Content. After you have activated this tool with Course Admin, you can add it to a Module in your Content with Existing Activities.

When you use this feature you can start a live chat session with your students. You can use this session, for example, to answer questions about a (digital) seminar.

Student notifications

Students will no longer receive notifications when new topics have been added to Content. Did you add a topic to Content they must know about? Then create an Announcement with a link to the topic concerned.
