Hi everyone, we’ve got some great improvements for you this week! The big news is that we’ve made it a lot less likely that you’ll see multiple student tiles for the same student while teaching your classes. We’ve also made a few things more streamlined, made more improvements to google syncing, and swatted some bugs while we were at it.
New Features & Improvements
Think there should only ever be one tile per student in your class? We agree! And we’ve made a bunch of improvements to how Classwize handles things like students going idle or having connection problems that means you’ll see fewer cases of students with multiple tiles.
When you hit pause on a student’s tile, you won’t need to enter their name in the Pause the Internet screen because it’ll already be there.
Your login experiences should be quicker and smoother if your school uses Azure directory services.
Google Sync will now sync students who’ve been invited to your class but haven’t accepted the invitation yet.
Classes with really, really, really long names will start in a more timely fashion.
Classwize settings for different Group types (Teachers, Restricted, Exceptions, and Substitute) apply correctly to users in nested google groups.
