September 2021 Updates for UCalgary Learning Technologies
Here are some of the updates to our Learning Technologies that happened during September.
August 2021 Updates for UCalgary Learning Technologies
Here are some of the changes and updates for learning technology that may be helpful for instructors to know about.
Changes to the D2L Assignment Experience
D2L has made some changes to the was assignments work in Brightspace, particularly to how assignments are created and evaluated. Both of these new experiences are intended to streamline how we create and grade assignments by making sure that most of the things we have to do are now all found in the same place, rather than having to click through multiple tabs. 
The New Brightspace Editor
The text editor in Brightspace/D2L is changing. The new editor modernizes a few things, makes the editor a easier to use and makes sure that the editors in all the areas of D2L work the same way (for students and instructors) and will be turned on August 20.
