Changes for Admins
Set default enrolment length
Courses now have an option to set a default enrolment length (in weeks):
If set, all new learners will have their course expiry date automatically set when starting the course. This is especially useful if you are running repeated cohorts on the same course instance each year.
Note: This feature will not retroactively change any existing enrolments. If you need to limit enrolment lengths then add an expiry default before enrolling users.
Scheduled emails (beta):
New in this release is the ability to schedule an email to be sent to all course members. After customising an email in the email template section of Curatr, you can then trigger the email based on Course dates or Level start dates (if applicable). For example, here's a Scheduled Email which would send an email 14 days before the course starts:
Behind the scenes, a scheduled email script runs every five minutes and checks for any emails that meet the criteria you set that need to be sent out. The time used to determine this will be the time set in the course. So, if your course starts at 09:02 on Monday and you set a scheduled email to go out 1 day later, it will be sent at 09:05 on Tuesday.
The beta release of this feature is so we can take into account user feedback before refining the functionality and interface further. If you like what you see and have any thoughts for future development please send us your thoughts.
Changes for All
Progress bar for Courses
Learners can now see at a glance how much total progress they have made within a course. The progress bar shows how many points have been earned out of the maximum available, and displays a message when the course has been completed.
Note: The XP shown on the course progress bar is based on the minimum amount of XP required to complete each level in a Curatr course.
A 'logged out' page for Single Sign On (SSO) users
This change only affects organisations with a single sign-on integration. The new release allows users to log out of Curatr without fully logging out of their Identity Provider (IdP).
