Licencing support in development

At the request of clients, we will soon be implementing the support for users to attach a licencing type when they upload material to the learning platform.

This means that any files which you add to them system can use any of the popular licencing types, specifically with regard to Creative Commons licencing.

This allows you to protect and/or limit your files with regard to how they are used by other people on the system. We expect support for this feature to be released by the end of May 2010. The upgrade will be applied to all deployments, and will not be mandatory.

The platform now has an abuse reporting feature which can be made optionally available to students.

Users can click the "Report Abuse" button and are then guided through a series of options and ways to report potential or suspected abuse; including links to the government CEOP site.

There are also options to send a message to the school administrator, and visit the CEOP website.

This update has been applied to all existing clients in Build 210.61
