On Saturday, May 11, 2019, HSC ITS will release our bi-annual SOLE update. This update will include new features and tool enhancements. Please see the update details below. No major service interruptions are expected.
Live Polling (beta) - Pilot SOLE's Live Polling to check comprehension, enhance engagement and facilitate learning during class. Live Polling requires no clickers and can be utilized from the student's phone or laptop to engage in poll questions asked by the instructor. Real-time results can be released by the instructors. Polls can also be graded.
Syllabus Builder (beta) - The new Syllabus Builder takes the standard syllabus format and allows the instructor to complete a form to deliver a fully accessible, html and printable version of the syllabus. Schools or degree programs can request a template to be utilized across their curriculum.
ProctorU LTI - A simple instructor dashboard integration of ProctorU, a remote proctoring platform. Also a new, advanced setting is available to mark an exam as a "ProctorU" exam. Contact SOLE Support to enable this tool and learn more about ProctorU.
Blackboard Collaborate Ultra (beta) - Blackboard Collaborate Ultra will be available alongside Blackboard Collaborate Classic through fall 2019. Blackboard Collaborate Classic will be discontinued at the end of the fall 2019 semester. Contact SOLE Support to learn more about saving previous Collaborate recordings and enabling Blackboard Collaborate Ultra in your course.
Accessibility plugin for SOLE Editor - Click the Check Accessibility icon in the SOLE editor toolbar. Once clicked, Accessibility Checker will check your content. If issues are found, use the Accessibility Checker panel to investigate and fix them - often with one click of a button.
Signup List comments - Signup lists now have the ability to include comments. By default commenting is disabled. You can enable commenting on your Signup list and the ability for users to view registrations/comments from the Signup List Tool's advanced settings.
