My students have followed the enrollment process both from the link I have sent them and the URL I have.  SOME are able to connect to the course and begin using the site immediately.  Many others get one of 2 messages: username and password is incorrect OR they are in Coursesites but NOT my course.  I have searched the help sections and attempted… (Show more)

I just tried it moments ago (December 26, 2018 1:30pm CST) and it's not working. A students tells me it wasn't working yesterday (December 25, 2018), either. I know - it's… (Show more)

Is anyone else frustrated by the lack of Journals and certain question types in Ultra?  I use these extensively in my existing courses, and so am not able to change to Ultra.  Are there any plans to add these features soon?
