Microsoft Office 365 Cloud Integration

Are you using or planning to use Microsoft Office 365? Our new Office 365 integration offers a simple, easy to use workflow that brings together itslearning tools with your OneDrive resources and Office 365 apps (Word, Excel and PowerPoint).

In the task tool you can now:

  • Create a collaboration with your students: Let your students co-author Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents. All changes are visible in real-time, and the participants can see everyone’s changes as they happen. Use it for process-oriented writing or let your students comment on each other’s work. The possibilities are endless.
  • Link to a file from OneDrive: Grab a file from you OneDrive and link to it. When you update the file in OneDrive, your students will instantly see the updates.
  • Upload from OneDrive: Create a copy from a file in your OneDrive. Uploaded files will not change for your students when you make changes in OneDrive.

Those who have file or folder can:

  • Link to a file from OneDrive
  • Upload from OneDrive

The Microsoft Office 365 Cloud Integration can be enabled from Admin > Edit global settings > Cloud services. Note that a Microsoft account is required to use the features.

Assessment record

The assessment record has been updated with the following changes.

Category row
When there are no categories in a course, we have removed the category row (previously a row was shown with the label ‘Uncategorised’.

Exempts
To keep the assessment record easy on the eye, we’ve removed the yellow background on exempts. Exempted grades are now shown as struck-through.

Assignments

Teachers can now submit an assignment on behalf of a student in a group assignment.

We’ve also introduced different colours for the submission statuses: blue for ‘submitted’, orange when the action lies with the student and grey when completed.
