TritonEd features that have received an improved mobile experience include:

  • Content Areas
  • Tests
  • Tabs and Modules
  • Discussion Board
  • Course Menu

 

Announcements

When creating an announcement, the Not Date Restricted duration is now selected by default, ensuring the announcement is displayed indefinitely. To limit when the announcement is displayed and hidden, use the Date Restricted option.

Tip: Click Send a copy of this announcement immediately to ensure every student receives an immediate copy of the announcement in their email.

Removal of 'Total Column'

The Total Column has now been removed from the Full Grade Center to ensure students are seeing their accurate grades. 

The Weighted Total Column is now the default external grade, and will not calculate a grade until it is configured.

See how to add a total column to add the calculated column back to your Full Grade Center.

TritonEd sites will now have a color palette that is consistent with UC San Diego branding and compliant with accessible design standards. Course themes and color palettes such as "Coral” and “Flame” are no longer supported.
