    We resolved a novel issue that caused the nightly Course Catalog update to fail to complete. Due to the online winter-term we saw the first case of an undergrad winter term section being cross-listed with an online schools-abroad section. The catalog hadn’t expected that it might need to pull together sections from two programs in that way and hit an exception.

    We launched a new website for the Anderson Freeman Resource Center.

    There’s a new PDF button in the WYSIWYG editor on our Drupal 8 sites. To upload and/or link to a PDF, highlight the text you want to use for the link and click the button with the PDF icon. You can then start typing the name of a PDF and find it in the content that’s been uploaded to the site, or click the Upload a PDF button to add new one. This is the first of our multimedia integrations using the new core Drupal 8 Media Library dialog which we’ll be rolling out for images, video, and audio soon.

    We are happy to announce that the Course Hub has gained a new feature: profiles for users with the ability to record your name pronunciation in both audio and text. Further detailed in the ITS wiki, this feature will present name pronunciation and preferred pronouns to instructors in the Course Hub’s class-rosters. Likewise, instructor name pronunciation will be shown to students on course-overview pages.

    As previously announced, we have now switched WordPress (sites.middlebury.edu and sites.miis.edu) over to using encrypted https:// connections for all browsing.

    The Directory will now display students’ Dean assignment in place of their old Commons assignment. This can be viewed in the rightmost column where Department is displayed for faculty and staff records, or on individual listings. The Dean assignment is only shown when using the Directory on campus, over the VPN, or if you log in to the Directory using the “Log In” link at the top right.
