We all know that a picture is worth a thousand words. But did you know that you have the power to tweak your course's pictures at your fingertips?
You can make simple edits to images in your webpage tasks at the same time that you're updating the course content.
After uploading the image to a webpage task, just right-click on the file in the File Manager window and select Edit Image.
You'll have the tools to rotate, resize, and crop the image -- all without ever having to launch another app!
Unless you need more advanced capabilities, SmarterU's image editor is a no-frills alternative for fine tuning your images.

This month's release is chock-full of updates that are guaranteed to give you greater control of your courses while improving your user's experience.
With our beefed-up tools, you're in charge of how and when learners can access your course:
- Prevent learners from accessing your course from more than the maximum number of IP addresses that you specify.
- Decide if and for how long learners will be able to access your course after they've completed it.
- Define a due date for courses.
Accidentally enroll a user in a course? Or maybe the user changed their mind after self-enrolling? Whatever the reason, it's now possible to unenroll learners from a course.
Restore previously archived groups with the new Unarchive Group functionality.
Account administrators can now respond to requests to reset passwords and other basic user information.
Assign a course to multiple users in no time with a new checkbox that lets you select all users who meet your filter.
We've redesigned the task icons so a quick glance tells you exactly what they do.
Intuitive labels like those on the new Save Notes button and Start button clarifies what will happen when users the click them.
You can learn more about these and other new features by checking out the release notes in our online help system.

I wish you could just show me. How many times have you thought this while troubleshooting a user's issue?
With SmarterU's Login as User button, you can step into the user's shoes with just one click.
By logging in as the user, you'll see the menus and options that they'll have access to and have the peace of mind that they have what they need to get up and running.
You will also be able to confirm their permission settings – what they do and don’t have access to.
Keep in mind that this functionality is only available to SmarterU administrators and that the system prevents you from logging in as another admin.
The Login as User button makes getting to the root of the issue faster and easier!

Course Completion Notification
You can now send completion notification emails when learners complete a course in a group.
Simply enter the email addresses of people to notify in the Send Course Completion Notification To field for a group.
SmarterU's new Allow Self Enroll option allows you to decide if group users will be allowed to enroll themselves in a course.
If you don't want group users to be able to self-enroll in a course, uncheck the Allow Self Enroll option.
