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 the option to pre-schedule Poll releases, filtering options for locating Polls and Surveys, and overall enhancements to the platform through element redesigns and bug fixes.
- Ability to Pre-Schedule Poll Releases
We’re enhancing the way Creators can initiate Polls by introducing the option to schedule active Polls. This enables Creators to provide asynchronous Polls that participants can complete within a specified timeframe with the option for gradebook synchronization. To learn more about this feature, please visit our guide on Scheduling Polls for YuJa Engage.
- More In-Depth Engagement Analytics
When sharing polls, Creators can now access the Average Engagement analytic, which displays the percentage of participants who have attempted to answer questions. Furthermore, the Participants Platform panel offers a detailed breakdown of how users access the poll, including their choice of browsers and platforms, such as Windows, Mac, or Mobile.
- New Filtering Options for Locating Polls and Surveys
IT Managers and Creators now have greater precision when locating Polls and Surveys with the help of new filtering options. These options allow users to specify their preferences, such as choosing whether to view Polls or Surveys and selecting whether they are active.
- Require Names When Participants Join Anonymously
Previously, participants joining anonymously were not required to enter a name. In this update, we introduced a setting allowing IT managers and Creators to require participants to enter a name.
- Enhanced Design Elements and Text Across the Platform
To enhance the user experience, we have taken a step toward updating areas of improvement through incremental design elements and text adjustments that can help facilitate ease of navigation across the platform. We encourage IT Managers and Creators to take a look at our new design spacing, buttons, messages, and more. We thank you for your valuable feedback as we continue to roll out even more enhancements to the platform.
- 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:
- Resolved issues with SSO and LTI linkage.
- Resolved issues with Polls having blank titles.
- Resolved issues that prevented Poll questions from being shared individually.
