The July 2017 update (4.20) will be deployed on Tuesday, July 18th. During the update, 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 (sample below).

Assignments 4.0

For the new school year, we have added a new assignments summary view, with the following options:

  • Overview - See the status of each student and assignment (not started, draft, turned-in, assessed), and quickly jump to a specific student submission. Assignments are color coded, so teachers can tell at a glance that whether an assignment is late, turned in, assessed, or in draft form.
  • Student Summary - Select a specific student's name or assignment to access the student's or assignment's summary. Teachers can use the student summary to quickly assess an individual student's progress.
  • Export - Download assessment information for all students and assignments in a spreadsheet.
  • Parent/Guardian Notifications - Send an email to student guardians an assignment progress report or a summary of all assignments for their child. Parent and guardian emails are extracted from your Student Information System. The Scholantis SIS Data Sync feature needs to be enabled for your district.
  • Print - Print assessment information for an individual student or assignment, or for all students and assignments.

iOS & Android App (Beta)

Faster access and persistent login to your portal. Portfolio users can capture video, audio and photos. You'll find media capture more reliable and faster than using the browser.

The 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 and allows you to integrate email and other tools such as Office 365 for Education, including OneDrive, or G Suite for Education.

News 2.0

We've improved the news archive, refreshed the item view, and integrated the document view. The News Archive template now displays thumbnails and includes next and previous buttons if you wish to limit the number of items displayed on a single page.

Printable Calendars

A new printer friendly view when you need to print a calendar. In addition to the event title, the print view includes the start and end date/time, and the event location. You may also choose whether to include days that do not currently contain events, and select between a one-column or two-column view.

System Dashboard

System dashboard is the new place for IT professional and system administrators to get insight into your Scholantis system, identify problems and get help. Right now you can:

  • Access site analytics, review server information including disk space, see up-time reports, access version and licensing information and much more.
  • Find information about site content such as content database status and a breakdown of content usage by site type.
  • We have pre-configured access for system administrators but you can quickly provide access to other staff.

The goal of the dashboard is to provide greater transparency into the state of your Scholantis system and allow easier access to information you need to manage the day to day workings of your site. We plan to continue to enhance the system dashboard but would love to hear your feedback.
