The latest update of Ilios is now available for immediate use. This release, v3.54.0,
contains a number of enhancements and improvements to the core application. Notable among them:
Session Instructional Notes
: Similar to Learning Material instructional notes, Sessions now have -- along with the already available Description field - an "instructional note" field. Visible only to authorized users (faculty, admin), this field can be used to identify any ongoing information at the session level which is desirable to be shared among teaching and administrative users. Its content is not displayed to students.
: We have markedly decreased the initial login/load time for users at shibboleth-enabled schools, making it even easier to access the system.
We've improved the iconography across the platform, making it more flexible and better suited to varied mobile and desktop device displays.
