Changes to Groups

With the latest update of eMargin we’ve made some changes to the way permissions are transferred to a text from a group. This has enabled us to add IMS LTI links, which can be used with many Virtual Learning Environments to enable seamless transition into eMargin.

Previously the link from the group to the text determined the access permissions on that text for all of its members. Now, the access level that a user has in a group will become the access level that a user is assigned in the connected texts (with the possibility to set a maximum level). We have updated the instructions for setting up groups and texts to reflect this [edit: these instructions have been discontinued, please see the user guide instead].
