Indicates the new features, changes, and defect fixes included in the Bongo 1.9 release, deployed to all production regions on Thursday, February 28th.
iOS Support for Q&A via Safari
Completion of Q&A assignments is now possible via Safari on an iOS device with no need to download an additional application. The workflow is now the same as a user on a desktop would have. If Bongo is embedded in another application, the user will be prompted to launch the Q&A in another tab.
The legacy Q&A Application for iOS is no longer supported and has been removed from the store with the 1.9 release.
Users accessing a Q&A assignment via Chrome or Firefox for iOS will be asked to open the Q&A assignment in Safari.
In rare instances, iOS users with Bluetooth headsets may have difficulties getting the recorder to recognize audio. If this happens to you, please try refreshing the page. If the issue persists, please try using your device’s built in microphone.
Mobile Video Workflow
The mobile video adding process has been improved in multiple ways.
- Drag and Drop portion of UI was removed in mobile view as it didn’t make sense from a mobile device.
- Add Video option will now filter out unsupported file types. (Photos in particular)
- Record Video option will now automatically launch the device camera and will choose the front camera if possible.
The ‘play’ icon on videos was updated to have better contrast with lighter video thumbnails.
During assignment creation, required fields are now highlighted in red if they are not filled out, making it more clear which fields still need to be filled out.
During assignment creation, users are now warned if attempting to set a due date in the past.
When in a group project, users are now warned if attempting to set a milestone due date in the past.
Individual projects can now be deleted if they have no learner content in them.
A defect which caused an error if the first or last name provided by an LMS was too long has been fixed.
