In this episode we unveil several of the new free updates available to teachers using OnCourse, including an updated OnCourse Connect user interface, content partners, assignment grader, printed assessment features, and more.
OnCourse Connect has a brand new look! Class tiles are now beautifully colored and assignments are color-coded to match their respective classes. Assignments, resources, and messages are now centrally located on the new Class page. There’s lots more too.
Hey teachers, we realize that it's a bit annoying having your district's benchmark tests mixed in with your OnCourse Classroom assessments. So, we thought we'd clean things up a bit. From now on, district-wide tests will no longer be visible in OnCourse Classroom, they will have their very own tab, the Assessment tab.
Our new Classroom partner videos make it super easy for teachers to learn about these amazing classroom tools so they can easily make assignments more engaging for students. When you're creating an assignment in OnCourse Classroom, you'll see links to our new content partners. Each partner has a bank of classroom resources coupled with fun and unique ways to create lessons.
That's right teachers, OnCourse Classroom now automatically grades assignments for you, saving you time and effort! Grades are automatically calculated as students complete your interactive assessments and post to your gradebook. And not to worry, you have the ability to override the grade if necessary.
These are just a few of the tons of upgrades released during this summer alone! If you want a full run-down of new features, make sure to check the Update Feed (you'll have to log-in to access OnCourse University).
