A round-up of all improvements and changes to the Buzz platform in version 2.0.29, available on December 17, 2015.

Table of Contents

Highlights

General

Main Menu redesign

The Main Menu has been redesigned to improve the user experience and customization options for admins. The menu icons display persistently on the left side, allowing for quicker navigation and orientation in the app. You can select the menu button in the top left to expand the icons and see their names, as well.

Along with this change, we have updated a few of the tool icons (Performance, Curriculum Map, Configure) to better identify what the function of the tool is and reduce confusion between other tool icons. Learn more.

People

New Filter options

Two new filters are available for teachers to view their students on the People page. You can now filter by score and progress allowing you to quickly identify students that may need help and encouragement. Just adjust the sliders and see the listed students change instantly.

Reports

Export User Activity

A new report is available for Admins: the User Activity Report. It exports data about user login times and time spent in courses. Admins can either run reports for a specific user or for an entire domain. This report is designed to meet different state reporting standards. Learn more.

Other Updates

Clipboard

Student List

Students added to the Clipboard now remain in the Student List until the user logs into Buzz again via the Sign-in screen. Previously, students would be cleared from the list with a page refresh. This allows a teacher to refresh the page or switch to another app (i.e., Student, Admin) without losing those students previously added.

Curriculum Map

Custom Activity: Completion status

SCO activities can now record their own completion status independent of the Buzz completion trigger.

Custom Activity: Fit content

Authors can now set SCO activities to fit the content to the available size.

General

Proxy

When a user does not have permission to proxy as a particular individual, the error message now provides better details as to why the user cannot proxy.

Fixed Issues

Activities

  • Back quotes would display sometimes in rendered math equations.
  • Custom Questions would sometimes not display correctly.
  • Upon saving (not submitting) an Assessment, the button to resume the activity read "Start" instead of "Continue."
  • Videos would sometimes not display full screen when selected.

Curriculum Map

  • The button to edit the course title was misaligned when the title was too long.

Home

  • Parents/observers could not view a student's Announcements.
