  • --Update--

    We forgot to mention that instructors can also receive quiz attempt notifications. It works just like the Assignment Submission email notifications highlighted in the video. 

  • These are so great! I am so excited, especially with the 'exempt' feature. I hate seeing all those blank spaces in the gradebook for group discussions! I am also excited to be able to link to my announcements when sending out a class email. 

    Thank you for sharing these and for always keeping us informed of the latest and greatest!

  • The Class Engagement tool looks like a great addition with lots of versatility. Im wondering if the gradebook has a display for students who submit an assignment after the due date/time? I think I-Learn 2 had a marker for late assignments. Does IL3 do the same?

    • IL3 does display/notify if an assignment has been turned in late. However, it is only displayed for assignments, not quizzes or discussions. It is displayed for teachers in the Assignment tool while grading, not in gradebook. 

      • So if we have a late policy for assignments - then there is not a simple way to see a late submission in the gradebook. We would have to go into the assignment as if we were actually grading the assignment. Any other suggestions for easily keeping an eye on late submissions that would get a reduction in points?

        • In the video we explain that you can be notified via email whenever a student submits an assignment late. Since assignments can't be auto graded, it's a nice way to be notified when your attention is needed. 

          As for quizzes, there is no notification or any other type of signal when a quiz is completed late. 

  • I have discovered that when you are editing restrictions on students to allow late work, you can choose more than one student at a time.

  • Excellent, I especially like the class engagement tools.  Will help us keep tabs on our struggling students!

  • Thank you! I love the email option to receive notifications when a student has submitted an assignment after the submissions have been graded. Also, the class engagement tool is glorious! 

  • Love these new features!  So will the "exempt" option be the best way to "excuse" students from Pathway Gatherings as needed?
