The ability to upload various types of content to a module has been updated and improved to provide a more seamless experience:

  • The ability to take HTML code and embed items into a module will now only be available from the Embed pill.
  • The Document pill option will now handle the ability to:
    • Attach a document to a module as a downloadable resource OR
    • Attach ONLY a PDF document to a module to be rendered and viewed live within the module (i.e. without the need to download the PDF).
  • The Video and Image pill will no longer have the option to embed.

The Embed pill remains the same with a few minor tweaks to inform the user of browser security restrictions

  • When selecting the New Embed pill, the admin user is notified via a red warning message that attempting to embed any content from the Wisetail LMS media library will not work since new browser restrictions forbid the loading of unknown URL information within a webpage.
  • Furthermore, if the “Embedded Content” field were to detect any mention of content from the Wisetail LMS media library, the “Save” option will remain disabled until the mention of the URL for the Wisetail LMS media library is removed from the “Embedded Content” field.

The Document pill has been updated to provide more concise messaging as well as filtered viewing and rendering of PDFs within a module.

  • Downloadable Document – where the admin user can choose any document to link as a downloadable attachment to the module.
    • Upload Document – This sub-option will allow the admin user to navigate the local drive of their device to upload and attach an appropriate document to the module.
    • Select from Library – This sub-option will allow the admin user to navigate their Wisetail LMS media library to attach an appropriate document to the module.

    • PDF Upload – This sub-option will allow the admin user to navigate the local drive of their device to upload and attach a PDF document to the module. The file browser selection view will be filtered to show PDF items only.
    • Select from Library – This sub-option will allow the admin user to navigate their Wisetail LMS media library to attach a PDF document to the module. The library selection view will be filtered to show PDF items only.
