This morning, I had a faculty member point out that Pearson has changed their MyLabs and Mastery widget. The old one was green. The new one is much more muted and smaller. This does not change any functionality.
D2L does monthly updates. Most of the items they update are bug fixes and small quality of life changes. Recently, however, they have started to incorporate larger changes as part of their monthly updates. So, I'm going to share some of the highlights here.
