MyLO Updates – Semester 2, 2023

We hope you have a good start to the Semester, and following are some reminders and new features to assist:

Quizes in MyLO have changed

Improvements have been made to Quizzes including:

  • Simpler Quiz setup and the New Quiz Creation Experience is now on by default
  • Improvments to the Quiz Results View
  • Automatic Quiz Submission
  • Timer Improvements for Students
  • Synchronous Quizes

An overview of these changes together with more detailed information is available in our MyLO Staff Help Guides

Echo360 changes to Unit Sections

  • If you have chosen to allow it, students can now view their own reports/answers when they have already submitted an H5P activity
  • Image Choice can now be used in several different H5P content types such as Course Presentation and and Interactive Book


  • FeedbackFruits have added the ability for staff and students to record audio, video or screen directly within their tool
  • Live analytics are now available in their team based learning tool and all analytics can now be viewed in full screen mode
  • You can now choose to mute notifications for specific activities
  • Discussions on topics can now be free form (can choose not to allocate students to discussion prompts, whilst still choosing the number of required posts)



PebblePad have released a number of accessibility and workflow enhancements in the first half of the year

In addition the following features have been released:

  • Minimimum evidence criteria can now be set on capability blocks

PebblePad’s main release this year will be their new LTI 1.3 integration with D2L, which we believe will offer increased security and an enhanced set of features


Respondus have advised they are releasing a number of improvements over the 2nd half of the year

The first of these has now been released – units that have been approved to use Respondus for online invigilated assessments now have the option to record a student’s screen in addition to using LockDown Browser and Respondus Monitor
