Resolved Issues




(IE) The issue in IE browsers where embedded videos with Swedish letters did not display properly was fixed.



The issue where the Kaltura media in the BlackBoard course tools opened up the homepage was resolved. The issue was caused due to an added security feature enhancement presented in the B2 version 5.x.69 (SUP-14538)


(Reach/Captions) Changes were made to add re-sizing support to the player's 'Transcript Widget' that required additional frame size.


The issue where a 'Course Copy' action resulted with the In-Video Quiz grade not synced to the new course gradebook has been fixed.
