Since our first All New Design release in August 2021, we are excited to share our second Design update encompassing Reviews & Progress, Unit Planners, Study Mode, Weekly Planner, Engagement Analytics & more.
Plus, be sure to check out our latest ManageBac on Mobile update and a preview of what’s next for Gradebook & Reporting.
Reviews & Progress
Improving the Approval & Reviews process for Coordinators across Project-based Learning (EE, ToK, MYP Interdisciplinary) and Service Learning (CAS, SA):
- At-a-glance Tiles and Latest Activity Feed
- Faster, One-Click Approval Process
- Improved Usability and Mobile & Tablet Friendly
Class > Unit Planners
“Less is More” Unit Planning:
- Improving every step of your curriculum planning experience
- Timely & relevant IB Guidance tailored for each section
- Redesigned “Look & Feel” with improved readability & icons
- Maximum focus when editing (full-screen) with minimised unit outline
- QuickAdd for adding lesson plans & online Zoom lessons
On the Dashboard, we have shortened the ‘Upcoming’ section to show the next 5 assessment tasks, deadlines and online lessons. Below under Classes, you will find the new Weekly Planner, which provides greater clarity of focus by showing your current week’s Lessons.
With a scroll and one-click [Study Mode Blue Button], you can launch your Lessons or review your progress at-a-glance.
Across both your Dashboard and Tasks & Units within Classes, the new Weekly Planner view has been set as the default. You can also easily toggle between our List views or jump to previous & future Lessons.
W4 Oct – W1 Nov
Simplifying navigation and reducing clicks has been our top priority, so you can launch your Lessons in Study Mode with one-click, or you can click any Stream & Resource item. Browse Units > At-a-Glance from within Study Mode (simplifying your views), easily join online lessons directly, and ask teacher questions.
Dive deeper into your Student Engagement with our one-click rolled up Assessment & Coursework Submission status across Classes.
We are looking forward to December, stay tuned for our All New Design Part III, and share your feedback directly with our Product Team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
