Changes & Technical Notes

We have added a few more enhancements and improvements to ensure a great start to the new school year:

  • SIS Student Syncing - When new students from your Student Information System are added to your class site, we will automatically create a Student Blog, Student Portfolio or Shared Document folder (if the features are activated). As before, adding individual students to your class does the same thing.
  • Start Page - On classes and groups, you can now select any feature to be your home page, or even disable the home page entirely.
  • Parent subscriptions - Now available from the settings area of any class site (when Student Portfolios and SIS Data Sync are enabled).
  • Settings 2.0 Refinements - Various refinements to make managing class, group and public sites more intuitive.
  • System Dashboard - Various refinements and fixes. The new simplified people finder from class and group sites is now used in the Access tab.

Ready for September?

Check out all the great features we've added this summer, such as the new assignment summary, parent summary emails or printable calendars. Don't forget to try out the the new mobile app which lets you upload videos faster and adds audio capture for student portfolios.

The mobile app requires your school district to use ADFS authentication. Not using ADFS yet? Get in touch to learn how it works with the mobile app. ADFS also allows you to integrate email and other tools like Office 365 for Education, OneDrive, or G Suite for Education.
