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.

Removal of image and text information items
As images and text can be included in any type of question using the features of the HTML editor, there is no longer a need for image and text information items. Image and text information items in existing quizzes or question libraries convert into sections, and are still displayed to learners attempting the quiz. One section is created for each existing image or text information item. Once the conversion of existing image and text information items is complete, the ability to create new image and text information items is no longer available.
