We have successfully pushed an update to all YuJa Engage Student Response System instances residing in the United States, Canada, Australia, and the European Union. This release provides our users with a new poll activation workflow, SSO and LMS dual integration, LMS gradebook sync when sharing questions individually, download poll results, removed time limit for Surveys, and overall improvements to the platform.
- Improved Poll Activation Workflow
We have implemented a revised workflow that offers a complete list of Polls within the Engage dashboard. This enables instructors to access their saved Polls easily, decide if they would like to activate them in a course, and select how they would like to release the Poll (i.e. choose to release individual questions or release all questions together).
- Enhanced Panel Layout for the Poll Activation Dashboard
As part of our ongoing efforts to enhance the user interface and improve the overall experience for instructors, we have made adjustments to the panel sizes on the Poll activation dashboard. This update aims to prioritize Poll questions and ensure their clear visibility while displaying essential information, including responses, attempt breakdowns, and participant activity feed.
- Support for SAML-Based Single Sign-On Integration
We are pleased to announce that our YuJa Engage integration has been enhanced to support SAML-based single-sign-on integration. The integration will link the usernames and emails to a Single Sign-On (SSO) and Learning Management System (LMS). As a result, the Engage platform can now identify individual users regardless of whether they access the system using their SSO or LMS login credentials.
- LMS Gradebook Sync for Each Question
Building upon our gradebook sync integration for Polls, instructors can now seamlessly share individual questions with their students and receive real-time updates on the LMS gradebook. Results automatically sync to the gradebook as students complete each individual question, safeguarding their responses against any network errors that may arise during usage on mobile devices.
- Downloadable Results for Polls
In providing a comprehensive offline viewing of Poll results, instructors can download an XLSX file containing a list of students, the overall result for each student, the IP address for the student’s device, and individual responses to questions.
- Removed Time Limit from Surveys
We have removed the option to add a time limit when creating a survey. Instead, instructors can end the survey and view the results whenever they choose.
- Bug Fixes and Optimizations
We have optimized the performance of YuJa Engage and made several bug fixes to improve the user experience. Highlighting some of these optimizations and fixes are:
- Enhanced responsiveness of the student dashboard across multiple screen sizes.
- Fixed an issue that prevented Poll responses from updating dynamically.
- Refined layout for certain UI items across the platform.
