THIS WEEK IN ILIOS
Yes, it's one of those weeks when no news is good news: no major bugs, no major changes: nothing to worry about, and lots of good things on the horizon as we are able to focus on our work.
No release this week, but some of the things we will be adding to Ilios in the next few weeks include:
- Ability to set/modify the start and display time for ILMs
- Personalized checklists for learners to track study progress
We'll share more about these features in the coming cycle(s) when they launch. In the meantime, as always: if you have questions please don't hesitate to send us a note at email@example.com
CURRENT VERSION: v3.87.5
NEXT SCHEDULED RELEASE: 5/28/2021
The latest code and the complete changelog for this release, as always, are available for download here:
You can now plug the Ilios events & calendar dashboard, as well as the course manager, directly into your LTI-compatible LMS pages. It's as easy as clicking your mouse (two or three times). In order to deploy, you will need to be provided with a secure access key. Please email us for complete instructions at firstname.lastname@example.org
: Are you interested in getting a focused training for your power Ilios users and managers in your school or institution? We can do that for you: 1.5 - 2 days of focused training on the most effective ways to leverage Ilios as power users, and deliver information to your students and faculty in the best way possible, custom-tailored for your needs and methodologies. Please contact us
if you are interested.
How to Update Your Frontend:
The Ilios frontend is always up-to-date on our content-delivery servers at Amazon S3, but you will need to regularly run a console command on your backend instance in order ensure that your users are seeing the latest version and that they are getting all the latest features and bugfixes. To make sure you users are receiving the latest frontend code at all times, just follow the steps described here:
Though you will probably never need to deploy the Ilios 3 Frontend on your own servers, the source for the frontend code can always be found at https://github.com/ilios/frontend/releases.
The changelog for updates specific to the frontend can be viewed here.
