Quizzes now support markdown content in both questions and answers. This allows the quiz to include code snippets, images, etc.
The generation of leaderboard entries can now be controlled, per-course, from the admin interface.
The back button on the New Question page now takes the user back to where they came from (community index, or target details page), instead of always linking to the community index.
The ordering of answers in the community section has been improved; answers with more likes are listed first, and if two have the same number of likes, the newest is preferred.
Fixed a crash which could occur when users uploaded a profile pictures between 2 and 5 megabytes. The form now correctly limits the file size to 5 MB.
Fixed a bug which hid the review button for courses in a coach’s home page under certain conditions.
The student dashboard has been overhauled with a fresh design, and the target details overlay has been upgraded to allow us to present rich documents as content for students to consume. School admins can now author much larger documents as content for targets, freely introducing blocks of markdown, embeds from various sites, images, or files for students to download.
We have a new home landing page for the signed-in user. Users can now see all the courses and communities they belong to in a single page. All course related links are also directly accessed from this page.
The community feature is now live! This new features enables school admins to create multiple communities in a school where students can discuss target and other doubts with their peers. All communities linked to a course can now be directly accessed from the student dashboard. Students who have access to a community can ask question, answer questions from others, and upvote answers. Coaches act as moderators for the community. The author of the community resource, or any coach, can edit or remove said resources. The content of questions, answers, and comments are versioned, to keep track of changes, and Markdown can be used to format the content of questions, answers and comments.
There’s a new customization interface which school admins can use to change various aspects of the school’s appearance, from logos and icons, to links and legal agreements.
Student submissions can now be un-done / deleted right after they are submitted, and directly from the target details overlay. This replaces the old approach of navigating to the student’s profile page to be able to delete a submission. Like before, only un-reviewed submissions can be deleted.
Fixed a bug that prevented the coach review dashboard from loading previously reviewed submissions in some cases.
Coaches can now be added to schools and enrolled to courses or teams using the school administration interface.
The name of reviewer is now mentioned on the coach review dashboard, for submissions that have already been reviewed.
A beta version of a school administration interface is now live - this will allow school admins to control all aspects of the courses they manage through a modern UI.
The weekly leaderboard feature, that shows top active students, has been reinstated with a brand new design.
Improved UX on coach review dashboard - this update allows coaches to search for a student in their list, and to load previous submissions from students when the filter is active. Messaging in these screens has also been improved.
Targets which can be completed by visiting a link now actually complete when the link is visited.
Improved the coach dashboard UI by splitting into pending and completed tabs
We have a new and flexible grading system! Course admins will now be able to configure how they want to review student submissions. A sleek grade bar will be visible on both the student and coach dashboards.
We’ve tweaked the behavior of the target overlay on the student dashboard, for students who go through a course as a team. With this update, students can now see which team members still have to complete targets that they have to tackle independently. It’s cleaner than the earlier approach of displaying the status for every student in the team.
Coaches can now be assigned directly to multiple courses so that they can review submissions from all students taking the course. Previously they had to be individually assigned to students (or teams) to gain review access.
Auto-verified targets now behave correctly when they’re also team targets (completed together as group). The platform used to assume that such targets were always individually completed.
The primary component from the team profile page - the timeline of students’ activity has been moved into the student profile page, and the team profile page has been shut down.
Happy new year, folks! :-)
