Instructor Support for Educational Systems

May 2022 - 20/05/2022

Updated on

The new Brightspace release is available from 20 May 2022 10:00.


This feature implements a new and improved context link menu in the HTML editor. The new menu has the same functionality as before – enabling users to highlight text and create a link, edit the link, remove the link, and preview the link – but now also enables support for the previewing of quicklinks that contain replace strings while editing their HTML. The new formatting context menu continues to allow users to highlight text within the editor and apply formatting or create links.

Previously, when a user created a new quicklink within the editor that contains a replace string, this proved not replaceable by the context menu. Clicking to preview the link resulted in a 404 Error. This bug has been resolved from today on.

Manage Files –Improved error message when invalid files are uploaded

When a file is uploaded containing one or more illegal characters in the file name, this message explains to the user the reason why the upload failed.

Previously, the message was "Oops! Your file could not be uploaded", which did not explain the reason the file upload failed.
