Update: With the beta release of 05. 15, the issue of Classic Quiz to New Quiz migration has been fixed.

In my
latest blog post about the Rich Content Editor (RCE), I promised to keep you updated about the timeline for re-enabling RCE in New Quizzes. As per our latest update, we have completed all the necessary work on the previous issues around RCE and are conducted rigorous testing to ensure that it functions smoothly.

We are going to re-enable RCE in the Beta environment on April 17th. While we are excited to roll out this update to all our customers, we understand that many of our customers may have finals during May, which is why we have decided to hold the production release until June 17th.

In December last year, when the RCE was originally released, copying a New Quiz with Course Copy or syncing a New Quiz with Blueprint made some of the content not editable or viewable. Those issues are now resolved. 

Known issues

There are still some known issues with RCE in New Quizzes when it comes to moving content. Please note that most of the issues also exist with the current RCE.

  • If a user migrates a Classic Quiz to New Quiz (clicks on a Classic Quiz’s kebab menu and selects ‘Migrate’ option):
    • Images within the quiz lose copyright and permission information if they were set.
    • Course content attached to the quiz is duplicated.
    • Course audio and video attached to the quiz can’t be edited. The user would need to delete those contents from the quiz rich content and re-add them.
    • User audio and video attached to the quiz are not rendering properly and can’t be edited. The user would need to delete those contents from the quiz rich content and re-add them.
    • Course Documents and Links attached to the quiz are not rendering properly. The user would need to delete those contents from the quiz rich content and re-add them.
  • If a user copies or sends a quiz (by clicking on a New Quiz’s kebab menu and selecting ‘Copy to’ or ‘Send to’ options): Course images and Files might be not editable and viewable or different Images/Files may be shown.

We are already working on a solution for most of the migration problems so that you can migrate all your quizzes with any type of content.
