We are happy to announce a new batch of features and fixes for the SuiteC collaboration tools:
While we had initially planned to retire the SuiteC Whiteboard tool, it had a lot of fans, so we’ve brought it back! Users can once again collaborate on Whiteboards directly from SuiteC, and publish them to the Asset Library. Whiteboards can be enabled in all bCourses sites under Settings > Navigation. See this knowledge base article for more detailed instructions:...
When we re-built the SuiteC tools earlier this year, we prioritized the popular Asset Library and Engagement Index tools and made the decision to retire the native whiteboard tool and support use of the many available third party whiteboard tools. Our first major update to SuiteC includes a number of ways to make it easier to bring these external whiteboards into the Asset Library.
Starting January 6, 2021, at 8 am, whenever any campus member uses their UC Berkeley Zoom account to host a meeting that is recorded to the Zoom Cloud, the resulting recording will be automatically copied to UC Berkeley’s campus video management system, Kaltura. One of two things will happen:
If the Zoom account owner has no Kaltura account, the recording will be deleted from Kaltura within 24 hours (this does not affect the Zoom Cloud recording, which will still be available in Zoom for 30 days). It will never be shared with anybody else.
In-between Spring and Summer instruction, we will upgrade the Turnitin academic integrity integration available inside bCourses: On May 23rd, we will enable a new Turnitin integration, and turn off the legacy integration.
Turnitin Similarity Reports generated before 5/23/21 will no longer be accessible by instructors in bCourses after that date.
We scheduled this upgrade in-between semesters to minimize the impact of this change, but understand that some instructors may need to access reports generated from the legacy integration, and we will have options available...
The Asset Library and Engagement Index tools are being rebuilt, and new versions will be available in the fall, while Whiteboards and Impact Studio are being retired.
The SuiteC tool set was developed as part of a grant-funded project and first piloted in 2015. Over time, technologies have modernized, class sizes have increased, and the performance of SuiteC has fallen behind, ultimately leading to the need to retire the current toolset.
