At Foliotek, we work hard to provide the best assessment and portfolio software possible.  To do that, we make changes every week.  Sometimes we fix things that don't work, other times we release new features to improve your experience.  Below you will find a description of the changes we have made this month.

 

5.20.2019

What's new

We released some new features and upgrades this week:

  • We made another infrastructure update.  You shouldn't notice any difference in the way Foliotek works, we just want you to know it is more efficient now.
  • Instructors now have the ability to set assignment due dates in Canvas.  Instructors can set a due date for assignments in Canvas and Foliotek will automatically submit a student's work once the due date passes.

What we fixed

These issues were fixed this past week:

  • Moderators who attempted to edit a community portfolio template were getting an error message.
  • We added a notification in Internet Explorer 11 explaining that Foliotek no longer supports that browser.

What we're working on

Watch for these items to be released in the next few weeks:

  • A couple of new administrative reports are being created.  The Badge Report allows administrators, and moderators to pull information on a specific badge for a program and/or a community.  We are also adding a Registration report for administrators.  This report will allow you to pull registration data on your programs.

5.13.2019

What's new

We released some new features and upgrades this week:

  • The Career Success: Tech & Trade component will now appear on the User Activity report, if a program has chosen to use it.

What we fixed

These issues were fixed this past week:

  • The Program filter for moderators when running a User Activity report was not filtering the results correctly.

What we're working on

Watch for these items to be released in the next few weeks:

  • Some more infrastructure and security updates and improvements are on the way.
  • We are finishing up work on the ability to set assignment due dates in Canvas.  This will allow instructors to set a due date for assignments and Foliotek will automatically submit a student's work once the due date passes.

5.6.2019

What's new

We released some new features and upgrades this week:

  • A new report is available for administrators and moderators.  The Users at Risk Report uses a specially designed algorithm combining number of logins, last login date, id page completion, projects created, activities completed, and time on task to identify students who are at risk of not being successful.

What we fixed

These issues were fixed this past week:

  • Students who were given moderator status for a Presentation community, were not being properly assigned that role when viewing the community.
  • The My Assessments tab in Foliotek Presentation was optimized to load more quickly and better display submitted dates for evaluations.
  • We made some modifications to Foliotek that will improve the way it looks and performs when it is loaded in an iFrame.  This is important for course management system users who wish to load Foliotek directly in the browser window rather than in a separate tab.

Foliotek in an iFrame

  • If a moderator attempts to run a report on a community that contains no users, a new alert will appear letting them know there are no users in the community.

What we're working on

Watch for these items to be released in the next few weeks:

  • Some more infrastructure and security updates and improvements are on the way.
  • We are finishing up work on the ability to set assignment due dates in Canvas.  This will allow instructors to set a due date for assignments and Foliotek will automatically submit a student's work once the due date passes.
  • A new column is being added to the User Activity Report.  The Career Success: Tech & Trade component will soon appear on this report, if it is being utilized.
