Moderated Grading Audit Trail Enforcement

Favorites and Downloads Sorting

  • Resource cards display the number of times a resource has been downloaded or imported and the number of times a resource has been favorited. Institution Search Results
  • When viewing the resource Details tab in Commons, users can view filtered search results that only display resources from their specific institution.


Author Search Functionality

  • When viewing the Discussions page, users can use the search field to search for a discussion by title or author.


On-Screen Calculators

  • Instructors can enable an on-screen calculator with basic or scientific functions from the Options menu of any question type.
