As part of our continued effort to make the management of Teacher Dashboard easier, we have added the ability for Administrators to grant Teachers permission to manage their own classes as well as a number of other improvements:
Allow teachers to create, join and manage their classes
One of the most requested features has been the ability for Administrators to give Teachers the rights to create, join and manage their own classes. Due to the security implications, we recommend you read the Teacher Permissions support documentation and the Bulk assign the role of teacher article to ensure that your users are protected before you apply any of these permissions.
General TD and SD design improvements
Your feedback from the 'Tile view' on Teacher Dashboard assignments was so positive that we have now added it to Student Dashboard as well. It looks great on smartphones and tablets! We've also made various improvements to the other pages to make them quicker and easier to use.
Profile pictures are now pulled through from Office 365 into Teacher Dashboard, making it quicker for teachers to identify their students' work.
Improved CSV import options
Now you can decide what you want to happen when you import a new CSV file. By default, the CSV will keep all existing classes and only add or update ones that are in the import file. You can also choose specific information to ignore, or remove all previously imported classes and import a start again. Read our import tools support documentation for more information.
Rich text on Q & A for both teachers and students
After adding rich text to your assignment instructions in the previous release, students and teachers can now ask and response to questions with rich text too.
Teacher Dashboard is now available in Norwegian. If your language is not supported yet, please get in touch with us on firstname.lastname@example.org to request that it is added.
