If you build and operate quizzes or exams in D2L, beginning Friday, September 27, a new question editor D2L called the “New Quiz Builder Experience” will be shown in D2L. This will not be a comprehensive reconstruction of the quiz editor. It will not impact how students see or take a quiz or exam.
As of now, you are
able to opt-out of this new screen. However, it does represent a new, more
practical set of screens that D2L is creating so that quizzes are easier to
build and maintain. Take a look at this short preview video:
If you have any questions about building and operating quizzes in D2L, Email Mark Gallimore, director of the Center for Online Learning and Innovation, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
