Release Notes

Version 2.12 — March 30, 2023


This release introduces enhancements to Class Chat, Recordings, the Class platform APIs, and several other updates and bug fixes across the product for admins, instructors, and participants alike.

Zoom SDK Version: 5.13.5

Note: manual close captions have been disabled in this build based on an issue identified in the latest Zoom SDK. We will re-enable this feature upon resolution of this issue. Automatic closed caption (live transcription) functionality is unaffected by this change.


Below are the improvements that are being made available as part of this release:

  • The Class Chat tool has been updated to improve the auto-scroll experience in sessions where many messages are being sent in rapid succession
  • Instructors who initiate recordings from the macOS app will now be able to capture the Class whiteboard in session recordings
  • Instructors can now use Proctor / Collaboration View and Share Screen at the same time to allow for more fluid collaboration with session participants
  • Participants who are using privacy mode will now have their video feed disabled when session recordings are started to ensure that their video is not captured in the recording
  • Class users can now be required to log in from the Class launch page to limit the need for in-session verification. This configuration is managed from the Class admin portal.
  • Several performance improvements have been made to the macOS Health Check utility tool
  • Class users will now see a dedicated tab for all session recordings, including those that are initiated outside of a scheduled session time, from the Class LTI home screen
  • Several improvements have been made to the Class platform APIs, including better support for scheduling deferred classes, updating classes, and deleting classes. Full details can be found at
