Schoology Release Notes: July 2015

New Feature: Course Section Linking (Enterprise)

Instructors in Schoology Enterprise schools now have the ability to link together multiple sections of any course they administer. Linked sections share the same materials and grade setup, so you can set the course up once, and then teach multiple sections from that initial layout.

Your System Administrator must enable this feature for you, after which you can link sections when you first make a new course, or edit an existing course to add additional linked sections.

Linking Sections from a New Course

Linking Sections from an Existing Course

When you link sections, the course materials and grade setup are the same, but you can customize other aspects of each section by toggling among the sections; from example, from your course gradebook.

Linking sections is a powerful way to manage your Schoology courses more efficiently. For more information, see the Help Center and the Schoology Blog.

Managing Parent Accounts

System Administrators now have greater control over parent accounts, including the ability to:

  • Set the accounts to inactive of all parents who no longer have children at their school.
  • More easily reset Parent Access Codes for their students.

Additionally, the parents of children with no active Schoology courses are automatically opted out of receiving the daily or weekly parent digest email.

Bugfixes

  • Fixed an issue in which some parents were unable to sign up for Schoology with provided Parent Access Codes.
  • Fixed an issue in which some System Admins were incorrectly seeing a Delete link above user comments in their Updates list.
  • Fixed an issue in which rubrics were not being copied correctly when moving content to a course from the Schoology Resources area.
  • Fixed an issue in which some deactivated user accounts were not being included in the Inactive list of a course's Members area.
  • Fixed an issue in which comments in some students' report cards were displaying in the wrong column when the instructor hid the overall grade for the course.
  • Fixed an issue in which some users required multiple attempts to log in to Schoology using their LDAP credentials.
