A round-up of all improvements and changes to the Buzz platform in versions v3.0.244 available on August 12, 2021.
Coming soon to Buzz!
We announce significant upcoming features and changes in a standalone Coming soon article that appears at the top of the What's new section.
Next week: Next step in email and phone verifications
As previous announced, we have been introducing measures to encourage Buzz users to verify their email addresses and phone numbers to improve security. The next step in this process will take place on August 19, 2021:
- After this date, if a message is sent from Buzz to an unverified account, the user will be given two weeks to verify their information before Buzz begins blocking messages. During this grace period, a banner will be visible directing users how to verify their information, and users will receive an automated message from Buzz prompting them to verify their information along with the first message they receive during this time.
Enhanced Remediation assessment retries
To better personalize learning and help students gain proficiency in the learning objective, we have enhanced Remediation assessments to automatically grant a student a retry on any gradable activities that are aligned to objectives if the student failed to show mastery in the Remediation assessment.
As a part of this, we also updated the Activity stream to inform learners of activity retry opportunities and recommendations that are initiated by this change.
