  • This release updates the course Progress page to improve the accessibility of the page for learners who use screen readers. This page now has a logical and meaningful HTML structure, and heading levels and indentation are now consistently applied. (AC-582)
  • Course team members who use the bulk email feature can now review details for the messages they send by selecting Instructor, Email, Email Task History, and then Show Sent Email History. Previously, the message did not open as expected in a dialog box. (TNL-5840)
  • When you view your course as a student, custom pages that you defined to be hidden from students no longer appear in the LMS. (OSPR-1528)
