Coming in Fall 2011, iLearn will have some feature enhancements to the gradebook, drag and drop, backup, restore and import, and an exciting new way to gain access to eReserve material.

Gradebook enhancements

One of the most requested features for the iLearn gradebook is the ability for grades to automatically be saved as soon as they are entered. We have made this possible in the gradebook, and manually entered grades will now save automatically as you enter them. Letter grades will now also be visible on the main grader report for both the course total and for any category totals you have in your courses. These features will be rolled out during maintenance builds before the Fall 2011 semester begins.

eReserves

Materials that instructors have scanned into eReserves will now be available directly in iLearn. Students will be able to access these materials directly in their classes as soon as they are added to eReserves.

HTML editor

Pages with multiple HTML editors will no longer show HTML code when not being actively edited. Selecting the next editable field with then display the HTML editor for that editable region.

 
 

Course import

Course import no longer has a limit on file size. Before this change, imported courses could be no larger than 200MB. This will enable courses with large numbers of files to be able be imported without intervention from the Academic Technology HelpDesk.

Programs and Organizations

The Programs and Organizations sites in iLearn are being renamed to Collaborative Sites. The PROG/ORG block will reflect this, and be renamed to Collaborative Sites/

i<Clicker integration

Users of i<Clicker will now be able to register their clicker devices directly in iLearn and instructors will be able to import grades directly from the clicker software into the iLearn gradebook. This change will be rolled out in a maintenance build before the Fall 2011 semester begins.
