We’ve made it a lot easier to moderate Posts 🤐➡️💬

It’s now easier for teachers and co-teachers to review moderated Posts. The full content of all pending moderated Posts (including any attachments) now appear in a new moderation queue, accessible from the Class page, where they can quickly be approved or denied by the Teacher. 

  • When there is a new Post to moderate, a button will appear at the top of the Class page displaying the number of pending posts. 
  • Clicking will display all moderated Posts in full, including attachments. Teachers can individually accept or deny the Post. ✅ 
  • Pending moderated Posts will also appear in the notification list.

There are some slight tweaks to the information that is displayed to teachers in Quizzes. 👩🏽‍🏫 

We’ve made the different statuses of Quizzes more clear by adding labels to the information displayed on the Quiz (only teachers see this info). We’ve also made it more obvious what actions a teacher can take from different Quiz versions.

  • New labels let you know if a Quiz has already been assigned or scheduled.
  • More information is shown about the recipients of a Quiz and the due date.
  • There are now clearer instructions in the Quiz preview mode.
  • Now the “Last saved at” timestamp is more visible to let teachers know when Quiz changes are automatically saved.
