In June, we released localized student environments in Lt!
You can also use the new Lesson Menu in the Schedule View to unpublish modules and lessons, commit/uncommit lessons and sections, and reset student progress. Not only that, but you will better understand student activity via the new student progress bar.
Finally, new features in the Grading Environment will let you keep track of grading progress across lesson revisions and student sections. Let's dive in and learn more about the new features.
Make learning easier with a localized student environment
Students using Lt can now view their lesson environments in German, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Japanese, or English!
Once in a lesson, your students can simply select the desired language in the account drop-down menu, improving their learning experience.
Selecting a language reloads the lesson environment with all titles, messages, and tooltips translated.
Alternatively, if students already have their internet browser language set to one of the available options, Lt will detect this language and automatically display it.
Students can then change to another language in the drop-down if they desire. This selection will be remembered for future use.
Streamline administrative tasks via the Schedule View
You might have already adopted the new Schedule View, which improves upon our legacy workflow for making content available to students.
In June, we added a Lesson Menu Button to all published items in the Schedule View.
Using this menu, you can exert more control over your courses by:
- Unpublishing modules and (standalone) lessons
- Committing and uncommitting lessons and sections
- Resetting progress for all students in lessons and sections
Track student progress with a glance
A new Student Progress Bar has been added to each lesson and section in the Schedule View. This Progress Bar lets you quickly and easily see how many students:
- Have not started the lesson
- Are in progress
- Have committed
- Have been granted extensions
No more searching for student progress in individual lesson cards!
Keep track of grading across revisions
It can be difficult to keep track of different lesson revisions and to know how many questions have been graded across all revisions of a lesson.
To address this, those Lt users with grading permissions can now use a new Revision Selector to switch between lesson revisions when grading.
The new progress circle shows total grading progress for the current section (i.e. the proportion of questions that have been graded, expressed as a percentage), and also expands to show the proportion of questions graded in the current section/all sections.
Note that the progress circle in the image above has two colored progress indicators:
- The light blue indicator summarizes how many questions have been graded in committed student work across all sections for which the lesson is available (all revisions).
- The dark blue indicator summarizes how many questions have been graded in committed student work in the current section you are grading (all revisions).
