Invercargill – 26th February 2018

kuraCloud Invercargill is a major release with a number of improvements and bug fixes.

The big stuff

  • Copy an entire course! You can now easily duplicate a course, along with all the lessons and staff, making semester rollover super efficient. Need a tutorial?
  • The improved Scope Panel makes it much simpler for students to focus on scientific analysis. Students can now hide, delete or view traces individually (“solo”). Need a tutorial?

The smaller stuff

  • Format the text in your summary pop-ups just like any other text panel.
  • For our European friends, we’ve added the purple colour of academia to your Instance theme colours - check it out under “eggplant”.
  • If you have pop-ups linking to other pop-ups, students can use the new “back” button to navigate backwards, just like regular pages.
  • In the Background Page, we added a new “return to lesson” button to make navigation easier for students.
  • Improved layout of the buttons on the Data Sampling Panel.
  • Improved the Annotation Panel question icon to be more internationally recognisable.

  • Manage sections. Filter students by section, move students between sections, rename, add and delete sections, make your lessons available by section. Need a tutorial?
  • Beautiful new student progress dashboard for course administrators. Quick, at-a-glance data of your class. See progress by lesson, student or section, see lessons with grades released, and invitations accepted. Need a tutorial?

The smaller stuff
