The newest release of the itslearning (opens in new tab) learning management system (LMS) has improved the workflow for OneDrive and G Suite users, added more security features such as password protection for tests, and made text easier to read. It also adds new functionality for communication and for viewing event details.
The update improves users’ work experience with OneDrive by making the OneDrive file picker clearer and more accessible. In addition, the file picker now works better on larger and smaller devices, including mobile phones.
Users can now use the Google Single Sign-On from Google Apps or on a Chromebook, if it is enabled for the site. Users logged in to their Google account can access the LMS by going to the Google app drawer in their browser and clicking the itslearning icon.
Test 2.0 customers now have the added security option of using passwords to access tests, which means that a test can be embargoed until the password is shared. This will help districts, schools or organizations better manage centralized tests. This feature will be added to other versions of the test tool in the near future.
The new update enables students to start a conversation with group members directly from a group assignment. A new profile setting also allows administrators to have increased control of bulletin comments, prohibiting them whenever appropriate such as during online tests. It is now possible to prevent a single user, multiple users, hierarchy or a whole profile from adding new comments to bulletins in any course.
