Commons Updatable Resources

 

Updatable resources were introduced in the 2015-06-06 Release Notes. However, it should be emphasized that updating a resource will replace the previous version of the resource. This also applies to updating a course via Commons, which can replace constituent resources within the dependent course, resetting or replacing important settings, course design, and even resources like assignments.
