Tabula 32 (Germanium) - 5th April 2013 - Release notes

Tabula version 32 was released on Friday 5th April 2013. The main visible improvements and changes are:

General improvements and fixes

New Coursework Management homepage for students
  • We've redesigned the Coursework Management homepage for students, to make it easier to distinguish work in the past and work in the future, and make it clearer what the next action is for each.
  • When students submit an assignment, they are told whether they will be able to re-submit, and whether submissions are allowed after the deadline
  • You can now export the table of submissions and feedback for an assignment into Excel, CSV or XML.
  • It is now possible to collect marks on assignments without collecting submissions

In the next version: re-designed submission and feedback management page

New assignment submission and feedback management page

We've redesigned the submission and feedback management page to give a better high level representation of the current state of each student's participation in the assignment. This is represented as a series of progress bars going from submission, through marking and feedback (depending on which of these stages are enabled for that assignment).

We're currently looking for people to trial the new look with; if you'd like to be involved please get in touch by emailing webteam at warwick dot ac dot uk
