OCS bug fixes

Filed under: System Development,System Update,Technical — sgswaine @ 3:15 pm

Our new developer, Richard, has been familiarising himself with the current OCS codebase and technical layout to find out how it works and is developed. To test his bedding-in skills, we asked him to make the following changes and amendments to the current Online Coursework Submission system:

  • Fix Bug: Issues with deadlines in week 52; no appropriate warning to users that this could be a bad time to set a deadline.
  • Fix Bug: Where under particular conditions assignments would appear to be duplicated.
  • Enhancement: Create a new “Contact us” form so that users of the system could log queries or problems with the relevant team, the IT Helpdesk, the Learning technology team or the MEFE project team.

The resulting changes to the system have now gone live. All new developments will be forward scheduled so users are aware when things will change.
