We are excited to release our latest and greatest to you! Our teams have been working hard to enhance our existing feature set and fix bugs in 2018.

Our updates roll out on a rotating schedule so expect the next one in January of 2019.

New Features

  • Teacher Course Manager

    • Teachers can now add courses to one or several classes directly from the Course Manager. Easily access the lessons and assessments for a specific class and create assignments. To access this feature, click on the new "Add to Class" button on the top right of your screen. This feature feeds information to the student course manager released last month.
