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 mobile app for instructors, Single Sign-On support for the student mobile app, the ability to adjust Gradebook results, navigate through Poll questions, and enhanced security for the PowerPoint plugin.
- Mobile App for Instructors
We are pleased to announce the launch of our iOS and Android apps designed for instructors seeking convenient and seamless access to our Poll activation feature. The app allows instructors to activate Polls directly from their smartphones, ensuring they can engage with students and gather valuable insights anytime.
- Student SSO Login for the Mobile App
We are introducing the option for students to conveniently access their accounts by utilizing their Single Sign-On (SSO) credentials. This new feature offers a seamless and streamlined login process while protecting the user’s data and upholding authentication protocols.
- Join Active Polls Instantly
Students can now conveniently choose and participate in Polls by accessing the Active Polls panel directly from their Home Dashboard.
- Manually Adjust Gradebook Results
Instructors now have the ability to manually modify students’ grades through the Gradebook within YuJa Engage. This will allow instructors to seamlessly tailor the grading process to better align with individual student progress and ensure accurate evaluation of their academic performance.
- Manually Override Results for Short Answer Questions
Similar to our override for Gradebooks, instructors can now manually access the Gradebook to override results for short-answer questions.
- Students Can Navigate Through Poll Questions
To provide greater flexibility to students during Polls, we now allow them to navigate through questions and offer an automatic check to ensure all questions have been answered before they submit their Poll.
- Add Clickable Image Questions to PowerPoint Presentations
We have added support to allow Clickable Image question types to be added to PowerPoint presentations.
- PowerPoint Plugin Security Enhancements
The Poll Creator will be required to authenticate themselves by signing in to the YuJa Engage platform before questions can be shared. This enhanced security measure guarantees that only authorized Poll Creators are granted the ability to share Poll questions during presentations.
