10.7 Video Features Guide

D2L will be unavailable from June 14th at 10:00 PM to July 15th at 10:00 AM. During this time the system will be upgraded to version 10.7. Overall this upgrade will have little impact on the most commonly used D2L tools. The following is a list of changes available in the new version.

Small Group Discussions

 Features Include:
  • Ability to view multiple small group discussions in one topic
  • Ability to associate small group topic to grade item for easier assessment.

Intelligent Agents

Features Include:
  • Ability to modify sender name and reply-to address 
  • Ability to run in practice mode
  • History of messages sent, including who received the message, when it was sent and what it said.
  • New replace string for {LastCourseAccessDate} and {LastLoginDate}


Features Include:
  • Ability to Exempt students from participating in a grade item.  The student who is exempt does not receive points for an assignment, but it does not hurt their final grade either. 
  • Class Progress screens now display weight earned and exemption status on student grades.
  • Grade Information can be viewed for withdrawn students.

Other Improvements

  • User Progress has been renamed Class Progress
  • Number of attempts has been added to special access options in Quizzes.
  • The window style of rubrics has been changed.  This will make it easier to view a students dropbox submission and the associated rubric at the same time.
