Follow @CoursePlus on Twitter!

We try to post here on the CTL Blog on a regular basis, and many of the posts are about new features and changes to CoursePlus. We only post to the CTL Blog once a week — maybe twice if there's a lot going on. If you want more up-to-date information about what's new or different in CoursePlus or information about known issues or problems in CoursePlus, you can follow @CoursePlus on Twitter for more timely information. 

Some of the information in the @CoursePlus feed will be posted on the CTL Blog, but on Twitter, we'll include lots of extra, small things that aren't being blogged about as well as problems we find and when those problems are resolved. Please note that we won't be offering technical support via Twitter. You'll still need to contact CTL Help for that.

Schedule Course Announcements

We've added two new small, but helpful, features to the Announcements tool in CoursePlus.

First, you can now schedule announcements in advance. You can set a date in the future for the announcement and the announcement will not appear on your class website until the date and time you've selected. Previously, all announcements would appear immediately, as soon as you created them.

Second, you can now select the number of days for which you want the announcement to appear. Announcements can appear for 1 to 7 days. (An announcement that needs to appear for more than 7 days should really be added as a class email or go into the Discussion Forum.)

Hopefully these small improvements make announcements more useful for you in your classes!

Update Your Flash Player to Fix the Problem with LiveTalk Crashing When You Adjust Your Sound

A release of the Flash Player in early October introduced a bug that caused the Flash Player, which powers LiveTalks, to crash on the Mac OS any time you adjusted your sound volume on your computer. This was hugely annoying to many students, and rightfully so.

Adobe just released an update to the Flash Player which fixes this problem. If you do not install this update and you are on the Mac OS, you will continue to have crashes any time you adjust your spealer volume during the LiveTalk. Go get the updated Flash Player now!
