THE WEEK IN ILIOS
No release this week, but we continue apace on our work with new reporting capapbilities and general system updates. We are now midway through the AAMC Curriculum Inventory upload season; if you haven't already started to make progress on your upload plans, we encourage you to do so. And if you need any assistance, please just let us know
: we are here to help!
DID YOU KNOW
Did you know that Ilios allows you to create, manage, and report on keyword tagging throughout your curriculum? Using the Vocabulary tools you can create any number of controlled tag vocabularies, which can include both simple and complex (hierachical, nested) terms. School Administrators can add, manage, and update these vocabularies for the tagging of courses, sessions, and objectives to provide robust theming and tracking of longitudinal and spiral threads of topics and activity, as well as flagging of specific activities, milestones, and other issues within your Ilios data.
More information can be found in the User Guide here: https://iliosproject.gitbook.io/ilios-user-guide/schools/vocabularies
and here: https://iliosproject.gitbook.io/ilios-user-guide/courses-and-sessions/sessions/edit-session#manage-terms
CURRENT RELEASE: v3.89.2

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.
