Changelog: Cosign, Subscribing and Reviews

On November 26, UM.Lessons underwent some necessary maintenance.

The apache httpd server was upgraded, and now includes support for the cosign: community sign on authentication system. This will eliminate multiple logins when moving among cosign services (Webmail, Online Directory, CTNG). It also means that non-umich guests can authenticate to Lessons using UM's new Friends account.

  • You can now unsubscribe from a unit, which effectively removes it from your workspace (see Unit > Access).
  • When you delete a lesson, it's squirreled away in case you change your mind. Now, however, you can create a new unit with the same name.
  • The respondant presentation has been tweaked so it's more obvious when a lesson is being reviewed --- users should no longer see radio buttons/check boxes that don't do anything.
  • The Publish panel has been revised for this release:
    • the link to take (vs. preview) the lesson has been removed
    • the sequence for taking lessons offline has been streamlined
  • There is now a report for getting the label that respondants chose for multiple choice/multiple response questions (e.g. B). We'll be adding support for the opinion scale questions in a subsequent update.
  • Uploading Flash (.swf) media via the QuickTime content type will produce the correct embed tags.

Numerous minor updates to the engine to improve maintenability.
