Coming Soon! 3200.2.0 Ultra Highlights
- Test randomization
To support practice/drilling activities as well helping to avoid academic dishonesty, instructors will change the order that test questions are displayed to individual students. This capability will permit this randomization of the order of questions within a test. In a future release, we will provide an option to randomize the order of question answers as well.
- Attachments in Discussions, Questions, Feedback, and Comments
Faculty and students want the ability to include images, files, and other content when making submissions, creating assignments, and interacting within Discussions, questions, feedback, and conversations on object. Inserting multimedia allows students and faculty to engage in richer communication and expression within Ultra.
- Discussion Forum Insights
Instructors want to understand the contribution—or sometimes lack of contribution!—of students in a discussion to encourage participation and help assess student contribution for a grade. The Discussion forum insights provide a top-down window in to the activity happening within a discussion. Information available includes: word count, top participating students, top activity, and average grade (if a graded discussion).
- LTI 2.0 Technical Preview
Partners, customers, and Blackboard can use the LTI 2.0 specification to create solution integrations that are accessible from various access points in both the Ultra and Original experiences. Specifically, the LTI 2 registration (tool proxy) services are supported along with the results service for returning scores to the gradebook. Other LTI services and specifications including Content Item messages and Gradebook services (formerly Rich Outcomes) are not supported at this time.
