Providing information about supported learning technologies at uWaterloo. Our primary learning system, Waterloo LEARN, receives monthly system updates from our vendor, D2L. Highlights of those updates will be posted here.
The following are changes that were brought to Waterloo LEARN with the December 2015 D2L update:
Dropboxes can now be setup with a Turnitin exemption for individual students. If a student has opted-out of using Turnitin for their assignments, an instructor can add an exemption for them within the course. Their assignments will not be submitted to Turnitin, even if Turnitin has been enabled for the Dropbox.
The following are changes that were brought to Waterloo LEARN with the October 2015 D2L update:
The TA Level-1.5, TA Level-2, and TA Level-3 role rights have been restored to their pre-August settings. A change in D2L's August 2015 update made it necessary to allow these TA levels to edit dropbox folders, as a temporary workaround to ensure they could continue to grade student submissions. A fix was applied with this update to allow the elevated rights to be removed.
