Content creation improvements
- Do you need more formatting options than Atto text editor currently provides? Did you know that you can turn on the previous TinyMCE editor from the My profile settings. Our Atto guidance has been updated with instructions on how to do this.
- If you would like to display the content of a folder on a module homepage have a look at the updated guidance on creating a folder.
- The Quiz guidance has been updated to reflect the changes to the Quiz activity.
- If your students submit their assignments as PDF you can mark directly on the PDF without downloading the assignment. The guidance on adding grades and feedback has been updated to include this.
