Highlights: Buzz's new visibility options are perfect for Lesson Guides

In this release, we have added new visibility options for activities (managed in the Navigation tab of the activity editors).

Content authors can now set activities to be visible to:

  • Students, teachers, and observers: This is the default setting for activities intended for students to complete.
  • Teachers and observers only: This setting works well for Lesson Guide materials that observers like parents, mentors, etc. need access to. A map icon appears next to these activities in the Activities pages for teachers and observers.
  • Teachers only: This setting works well for Lesson Guide materials that only teachers need. A map icon appears next to these activities in the teacher Activities page.

    Hi,

    Friday morning onward, the Performance display "Options" resets after logout. Usually once we select a display option in the Performance it retains it for a specific login ID. Is this a desired outcome of your update? Has this happened across the Buzz system?

    Thanks!

    Hey Juanita,

    We aren't able to reproduce any issues with the Performance display options being reset on logout in our testing. One possible cause is the local browser is clearing out the cached data which is resetting the options locally.
