From Yoshi on MM:

With the UI updates that have taken place the right arrow at the top was disabled at the last assignment in a folder. I’m now using WL from a student perspective again and I find it impacts the flow quite a bit. For some courses the assignments for 1 week are divided over multiple folders. In order to continue from one folder to the next I now need to move to the folder overview, into the next folder, and then to the first assignment. Previously it was just 1 button to continue to the next assignment. Maybe you could consider readding that option, or at least move to the next folder, so people can continue working more easily? Though maybe as explicitly as ‘Continue to [next folder title]’, so it’s less surprising than the old behaviour


so it’s less surprising than the old behaviour

That was indeed the reason why we disabled the “next” option when you’re at the last assignment of a folder.

The Submit/Continue buttons displayed at the last assignment have changed to “Continue & Return to Folder Overview”, so students are aware that they’ve worked on the last assignment, and by directing them to the folder overview they can see their progress within the folder (are all assignments “completed”?), before deciding to continue working on the next assignment (folder).

What about a popup modal (or dropdown) with 2 options: “Return to Folder Overview” and “Continue to [next folder title]” when clicking the right arrow at the last assignment? This way, you can choose to jump to the next parent’s sibling assignment (folder) or check out your progress first in the current folder overview.


Yep, I think that could work. Besides that, I think these buttons could also use a “(Re)Submit & continue to [next folder title]” option:
For programming assignments i’m not sure where to put it, as Mark Completed has an automatic redirect already…
