Class Contributions page has moved to the Course Feed
The class contributions page, where students, facilitators and course administrators could previously share resources with each other has moved to the Course Feed.
What’s the Course Feed?
Just like on the Class Contributions page, students, facilitators, and administrations looking to share resources and ideas via text, images, video, links or files can do so via the Course Feed. Moreover, it’s the place to see what members of the community have posted in the class, in one spot, and displayed in chronological order. The Course Feed can be found in the side navigation bar in courses.
In the Course Feed, the community can like and comment on posts from the class. To learn more about the capabilities of the Course Feed check out our help article, What can you see in the course feed?
For facilitators, the Course Feed is a really powerful tool for engaging students. To learn strategies for supporting students, have a look at our Learning Hub article, Using OpenLearning Course Feed to facilitate your course.
What changes have been made?
For OL v.1 courses, the Class Contributions page will still be accessible to students, facilitators and teachers. However, for OL v.2 courses, the Class Contributions page will simply provide students, facilitators and teachers with a link to the Course Feed.
Why these changes?
The Class Contributions page was not accessible to all users. Changing this page was one small part of an ongoing effort to make OpenLearning courses accessible to all students.
