We have several new updates to iCollege, Webex, and Slido! Some of these are already available, and others will be available starting Friday, April 29th. See below for details, and please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you encounter any problems or have questions.
iCollege – Available April 29th
Advanced Code Editor - Visual Updates
Visual updates have been made to the advanced code editor to increase the readability of tags and text. This update also improves compatibility with screen reader technology.
Group Creation Updates
When creating and saving new group categories, you will now receive a message that “Group creation is in progress.” Once the groups have been created, you will receive an alert in your minibar. This update also adds pages to the groups tool and will allow you to create up to 200 groups.
Intelligent Agents - More Flexible Scheduling
The Intelligent Agent creation interface has been modernized, and new agent frequency options have been added.
- One-Time Run: This new options allows instructors to choose a single date and time for the Intelligent Agent to run.
- Hourly: Instructors can select a date range and time for the intelligent agent to run hourly.
The existing Daily, Weekly, Monthly, and Annually options now have a Scheduled Time setting that allows you to determine what time the agent will run on the scheduled dates.
Webex – Available Now
Improved Toolbar for Shared Content
Webex has made interacting with shared content easier by moving the tools (from a fade-out side bar) into a dedicated toolbar above the stage so you can access it at any time.
You can now see who’s sharing content, zoom in or out, open the annotation tools, and more–without blocking your view of what’s being shared.
Application Window Sharing
This feature optimizes the Webex Meetings content sharing experience while sharing an application. Previously, when you shared applications it would share the entire screen and mask areas outside of the selected application’s window. With this update, the receiving user sees the individual windows of the shared application and not the entire masked desktop screen..
Webex Browser App – Share 1080p Video in Chrome, Firefox and Edge
Users joining from the Webex Meetings web app in the Chrome, Firefox, and Edge browsers can now send up to 1080p video in meetings and webinars.
Slido – Available Now
Visual changes to increase readability and VoiceOver screen reader support have been added to Slido.
