The December 2019 update (6.2) will be released on Thursday, December 5th. During the upgrade, your sites will be unavailable for a few minutes at 5:00 pm local time. A maintenance notice will be displayed to logged-in users at noon PST.

Portfolio Video Compression

When large video files are uploaded to a portfolio, the server will now compress the videos in the background to reduce server space and increase compatibility with devices. Students and teachers no longer require the app in order to ensure that the videos are a reasonable size and can be played back on all devices.
