Tabula 22 (Titanium)

Tabula version 22 was released on Thursday 20th December 2012. These are the main visible changes:

Student profiles

We have released the first iteration of the Student Profiles module of Tabula. At the moment you will be able to see basic information about any student in your department if you are a member of staff, and your own profile if you are a student. We will continue to iterate on this and include more information over the coming months.

General improvements and fixes

  • The coursework management homepage has been redesigned to show an activity stream of useful events and items for both students and staff
  • Submission names with international characters or multiple spaces no longer appear to be "Not Found" when you click on them as a student
  • The department admin screen has been redesigned to be easier to use in Coursework Management
  • Turnitin reports no longer fail if the student submitting has no email address recorded
  • It should now be possible to perform all administrative tasks on an iPad or other tablet
  • It's now possible to re-include removed users from assignments
  • Links to Turnitin reports are no longer broken in email notifications
  • An issue that caused Internet Explorer to not load some design rules has been fixed
