Anyone clicking on an old 1.1 integration Assignment Builder link in a D2L course after this date will arrive at this error message:

You may also see some older warning messages that have been hanging around for a while.  On June 6th, 2022 the new version of the VoiceThread integration was added to D2L.  If you are using old VoiceThread integration links in your course, you may notice a red warning message in the description field of your VoiceThread content topics.  If you see the warning message, you will need to remove and replace the link in your course with a link to the new VoiceThread integration.  The warning message will not appear if you already use custom descriptions on your VoiceThread content topics so just because you don't see the error, does not necessarily mean the links are 1.3.  A good way to double-check is to remove your custom description and see if the warning message below appears.

Here is a preview of the error message:

Please refer to this article and/or this video for information on how to swap an old VoiceThread link for a new one using the new integration.

The D2L and InTech Consulting Team strongly recommends that you update your VoiceThread links to links using the new integration as soon as possible.  If you are teaching a live course, it's best not to update the links until the course has completed, but before copying the course forward.  If you copy forward each semester from "master courses", these changes should be made in the master.  It's a good idea to check the UA Tools -> VoiceThread menu item as well.  If this takes you to a configuration page with only 3 VoiceThread options instead of 4 including Assignment Builder, the UA Tools link should be replaced as well.  Please refer to this article for replacing your UA Tools -> VoiceThread links.
