In this Practice release (March 14), users on mobile browsers are prompted to download or open the Practice mobile app. The Learner Results and the Learner Submission pages display updated layouts. The Configure Exercise tool includes improved scheduling capabilities, the Account Settings page displays expanded time zone options, and the Practice Login page links to a support resource. Additionally, Practice integrates with Bridge, Instructure’s corporate and performance management software.


New Features


Bridge LTI Integration

Practice integrates with Bridge, Instructure’s corporate and performance management software. After the LTI integration is enabled by a Bridge admin, Bridge authors can add Practice exercises as Bridge program objects for learners to complete. Bridge authors can also access Practice submissions from learners within Bridge.


Mobile Banners

When a user accesses Practice in a mobile browser, a banner prompts the user to download or open the Practice application. If the Practice app is not installed, the banner directs the user to download the Practice app. If the Practice app is already installed, the banner directs the user to open the Practice app.





Updated Features


Self Reflection Preview

Learners can view their self reflection in the Learner Results page.  Admins, instructors, and facilitators can view an updated, more streamlined layout in the self reflection section of the Learner Submission page.




Exercise Scheduler Improvements

The Configure Exercise tool features a text input option for scheduling exercise stages. This tool also allows users to copy and paste dates and times directly into the input fields and provides a more accessible user experience.





Other Updates


Expanded Time Zones

In the Account Settings page, the time zone option supports over 500 international time zones.




Login Help

The Practice Login page contains a new link for improved multi-region support. This link assists international users who may need to use a different login address to access Practice.
