Messages and Notifications
New messages and notifications are highlighted in the messaging and notifications menu located next to your username. Users also have the ability to view messages and notifications and configure their preferences from the respective dropdowns.
Lock Moodlerooms Forums
Moodlerooms Forum posts can now be locked after a predetermined amount of time so students can no longer add replies. Students still have the ability to start new discussion posts but will receive the message "This discussion has been locked so you can no longer reply to it" when viewing a locked discussion post.
Assignment Deadline Overrides for Individuals or Groups
Much like the Quiz activity, an Assignment Activity deadline date & time can be overridden for an individual student or group.
Allow Faculty to Make a Selection for Students Within the Choice Activity
Faculty can now make a selection for students using the Choice Activity.
Allow Faculty to Toggle to Student View in the Gradebook
Faculty can toggle between what a student sees in their user report vs what the faculty sees in the user report.
User Interface Updates
The Grades button is now located in the Navigation Block. While in your Moodlerooms course locate the Navigation Block. The Grades button is located beneath the Participants link.
The Advanced Forum activity has been renamed Moodlerooms Forum. All functionality has been maintained.
Joule Grader is now known as Moodlerooms Grader and can be found under the Course Administration Block.
Activity Chooser On/Off Option
After the Moodlerooms update to 3.2.3 the Activity chooser off/on option has been moved to Preferences>Course Preferences.
When composing a message pressing enter inserts a new line rather than sending the message.
