Improvements

This release sees a WebLearn move to a brand new source of course and unit groups. This new service ('Group Store') has a better naming scheme and more accurate membership.  This has been a major piece of work.

For course groups it partitions (non-rusticated) suspended students into a separate group - you will notice that when you add a course group, a certain proportion of the students will be given the 'suspended' role. Every WebLearn site contains the 'suspended' role and the rights that these students are assigned have been set up in collaboration with the Education Committee.

Unit groups are now more granular and there are groups for a unit's staff and also for students.

We have spent many hours comparing the membership of groups between the old and new systems and are convinced that the new groups are correct, however, would ask that you take time to check that groups on your sites appear to be correct. Please let us know if you have concerns.
