Edit Learning Assignment (LAT) Due Dates and Titles

With this enhancement, administrators can edit the due dates of dynamic learning assignments and the titles of both standard and dynamic assignments, even after the assignments have been submitted. Being able to make minor edits to learning assignments can help administrators save time, as they will not always need to create a whole new assignment to accommodate changes to titles and due dates.
