We have successfully pushed an update to all YuJa Engage Student Response System instances residing in the United States, Canada, and the European Union. This release provides our users with Blackboard Ultra LTI 1.3 integration, Gradebook integration for Blackboard Ultra and Canvas, an improved UI design for viewing published polls, and overall improvements to the platform.
- Blackboard Ultra LTI 1.3 Integration for Student Response System
Blackboard Ultra admins may integrate YuJa Engage for their institution to allow polls and surveys to be created and published directly to desired courses. Students may then access YuJa Engage, participate in polls and surveys, and have their grades synced to the LMS Gradebook. To learn more about our Blackboard Ultra integration, please visit our support guide on Integrating the YuJa Engage Platform for Blackboard Ultra LTI 1.3.
- Polls Can Now be Synced with Blackboard Ultra and Canvas Gradebooks
YuJa Engage now offers Gradebook synchronization for Blackboard Ultra and Canvas users. Instructors can publish polls directly to courses for students to take within the LMS and then view the results for each student within their LMS Gradebook. To learn more about this feature, please visit our guide for Blackboard Ultra or Canvas Gradebook synchronization.
- Enhanced User Experience for Published Polls
We have updated the UI to provide a modern look for instructors to view published polls results. Instructors can simply select the desired poll and view a list of questions and their corresponding poll results, as well as a Participant Summary.
- 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:
- The Support Center panel in the Creator dashboard now offers additional options to contact tech support.
- Resolved an issue for users not being able to be added by their phone number.
- Enhanced the mobile browser responsiveness for Poll participants.
- Updated UI responsiveness for images being inserted into Polls.
