Hide due date: Instructors may now make the due date for an assignment hidden from students. This is especially helpful in cases where there is no due date for an assignment. An instructor would select a due date far into the future, but select "hide due date from students" effectively making it no due date.
Group submissions: added ability to designate an assignment as a group assignment allowing any member of a group to submit on behalf of the rest of their classmates. Grading is streamlined too; Instructors assign one grade to the group and it gets applied to all members instantly.
Send comments to Gradebook: for any assignments that are linked to a gradebook and have comments, those comments are sent directly to the item in the gradebook when an instructor grades and releases the item.
Turnitin indicator: students will now see an indication for each assignment that is elected for Turnitin review.
Assignment resubmission notification: On assignments where resubmissions are selected, instructors have the option to send automatic notification after a submission is initially graded and returned.
Drag and drop: users now have the ability to drag and drop one or more files into resources. In addition, the Chrome browser supports whole directory uploads. Note: whole directory upload is only available using Chrome at this time, but support for other major browsers is in current development.
Hidden directories with accessible content: in many cases, instructors would like to make resources available to students, but don't want those folders visible in Resources. An added feature now allows the ability to indicate that the directory should be hidden but its contents should be visible to students wherever used.
Web content from existing link: added the ability to quickly create a new web content page from an existing item in Resources.
Complete redesign: Syllabus has been rebuilt from the ground up and now includes many requested features like inline editing, drag and drop reorder of items, open/close dates, visibility controls, Calendar linking and more!
