The June 2015 update (4.9) will be deployed on Tuesday, 30th of June.

Look for the megaphone! We've highlighted important class site changes worthy of communicating to end users or support staff. 

 Assignments 2.0

We've taken assignments back to the drawing board and created something we think is magical! Check out the video below and share it with your teachers in preparation for September:

We've created an experience which resembles a process teachers are already familiar with, and then incorporated tools to support both blended and formative approaches to learning.

Existing assignments will be migrated. Existing student submissions will be archived, you'll find them in Site Contents (in the Settings Cog).

Thumbnails now also include a preview for posts which contain PDF, DOCX, PPTX or XLSX files.

Usage Metrics

As an ongoing effort to help customers get the most out of their portal we are adding additional usage monitoring. This data provides deeper insight into adoption and usage, this ultimately helps to direct effort to the most important areas. As per existing analytics, no personally identifiable information is included in the data. The information is available to you, and includes data such as site visits, size and modification dates.
