Coursework Management 21 (Scandium)

Coursework Management version 21 was released on Friday 7th December 2012. These are the main visible changes:

  • A new Tabula look-and-feel ahead of the release of Tabula itself.
  • When you enable extension requests from students, you now provide a specific group of users to receive notifications and approve the requests, rather than using module managers or department administrators.
  • When setting up assignments from SITS, you can now click a button to return to step one to add or remove assessment components, without losing your progress so far.
  • The count of how many students have downloaded their feedback so far has been reinstated.
  • On a late submission, you can now hover your mouse pointer over the submission date to see how late it was, eg "4 hours and 20 minutes".
