Major upgrade: Better activity management

Tracking your students’ progress as they work on an activity has just become much easier! Now you can see at a glance what stage your students are at and easily get to the comics you need to review.

Activity progress dashboard

All of the activities you’ve assigned to your class appear on the My Activities homepage. Each activity has a new dashboard that shows student progress categorized into 5 very useful sections –

Submitted for review – these students have sent you comics and are waiting for you to approve them or provide feedback.
Unstarted – these students have yet to start their comic.
In progress – these students have saved a draft but not submitted it to you yet.
In revision – these students have received your feedback but have not yet re-submitted their comic to you.
Approved – these students have successfully completed the activity.

Clicking on any of these categories takes you to the relevant list of students. Generally, the one you’ll be most interested in is Submitted for review, since it’s the list of students who require your feedback.

Review comics faster

And giving feedback is easier than ever. Just hit the ‘Return comic for revision’ button above the comic you’re reviewing and add any comments you have. You’ll then automatically move to the next comic in the review queue! That means no extra clicking or guessing which comic to review next.

On the left of any comic you’re reviewing, you’ll see a list showing each student’s progress, and can easily navigate to any of them to see their work so far. Again, this means less clicking and an easier way to get a snapshot of your class’s progress.

We think you’ll find our new system for managing your activities intuitive and easy to use. Now all you need to do is assign an activity!
