Learning Management Platform monthly update: April 2023

A new global navigation system was implemented that cohesively links all components of the platform. The new navigation system simplifies the user experience. It provides a consistent and intuitive way to access different platform components through a unified sidebar menu. The quick navigation between components enhances users’ productivity and enables them to seamlessly interact with various functions of the platform. This also speeds up content management workflows, assignments definition and processing, and administrative tasks implementation.

User, group and organization unit management

New UI for managing users, groups, roles and organization units was implemented.

Groups can now be organized hierarchically.

Administrators now can manage organization charts and organization units. When a user is added, it can be added to groups and primary organization units, their roles can be defined and reviewed. Administrators can define group managers to manage groups and units, add group and unit instructors with the permissions to see user data only in groups and units that they instruct.

Permissions and roles

Each platform component now defines a comprehensive set of fine-grained permissions for working with its entities. A new UI for managing permissions and roles was introduced. The preconfigured roles include Administrator, Author, Instructor, and Learner. Administrators can also create custom roles by specifying specific sets of permissions required for performing certain tasks.

This feature allows administrators to have granular control over permissions and roles in the platform. The ability to create custom roles ensures that access permissions align with specific needs and responsibilities. By defining fine-grained permissions, users can precisely manage access at the entity level. This enhances security and helps to tailor user experiences.
