The New and Shiny:
SET GPS ATTENDANCE LOCATION BY ADDRESS
To make setting attendance locations easier for classes using GPS, you can now set your pin by entering the address on a map. This is useful for instructors and administrators who need to set attendance locations for classes, clinicals, or externships but are not on site to do so via the previous pin dropping method.
POLL STYLE QUESTIONS
You can now poll your students via CourseKey! Previously, you could leverage a question as a poll by removing correctness points from the grading, but were still required to designate a "correct" answer. We updated the question building functionality so that you can create polls without being forced to assign an answer as "correct." Students and instructors will see in the gradebook results that no correct answer was assigned to polls.
Sort students in the gradebook - Instructors and administrators on a course can sort students alphabetically by first or last name.
Prevent students from dropping courses - Schools can now opt to block students from dropping themselves from courses. This is an update for schools syncing their CourseKey records to their internal systems to preserve data quality upon transfer.
