The beginning of a new school year can be stressful for administrators and teachers. We are now releasing some features meant to reduce the work burden connected to the start of a new school year.
Copying course elements
It is now possible to copy elements between courses without copying participants, answers and submissions. This simplifies the reusing of courses, and teachers no longer have to spend time cleaning up old reused courses. Uncheck the Include answers and submissions box to copy elements without participants, answers and submissions connected to them.
Importing and exporting links
This nifty little feature allows teachers to export and import course links as a bookmarks.html file, thus making it easy to reuse links in different courses, or import bookmarks and favourites from your browser – for example Firefox or Internet Explorer.
Script for end of school year
In order to reduce the end of school year process, a script has been made that stops all SIMS integrations on a site and start them again later. The script breaks all current hierarchy synchronisations and creates a new start hierarchy for the school's synchronisation with SIMS.
