UClass has just rolled out 2 new features on its platform! Take a look at what we’ve added to make searching and sharing resources even snappier.
Search “My Resources”
If your UClass file system is full of resources and you’re having trouble keeping track of your own authored materials–don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! As part of advanced search, UClass users can narrow search results to their own created resources. Simply select “My Resources” as the source in the left-most advanced search dropdown!
“Request Access” to Shared Folders
We’re taking folder sharing and collaboration a step further with our newly added folder dropdown option. Say hello to the new “Request Access” option! For a shared folder to which you have view-only access, you can now ask the folder’s owner for editing permissions. Once you are granted editing capabilities, feel free to adjust the shared folder’s contents. Just remember, all changes made to the shared folder will also appear for all other recipients.
Today, UClass released the newest version of Analytics! Get excited because along with this updated version of UClass come tons of new metric-centered features. Hooray, they made it here just in time for the holidays! Our team is dedicated to providing you with the most comprehensive curriculum assessment tool out there. Check out what we’ve added:
Here, you get a bird’s-eye view of which standards have been covered. This data informs teachers and administrators of gaps in content and of areas to better invest in instruction and attention. Click into your coverage chart to navigate deeper into your covered subjects.
If your network includes multiple user groups, compare them all in one comprehensive graph. We now track downloads as well as views under the “Usage” category.
Metric-Integrated Info View
We pulled in valuable metrics directly into folder and resource info options! For all of your shared items, you can see who they have been shared with and the percentage of users who have viewed them.
Admin Panel Analytics
Our admin panel now displays basic user metrics, which you can use to filter and sort search results. Identify your most active users within your network.
Individual User Report
Individual reports provide an in-depth analysis of how users within your district use UClass. Identify user behavioral trends with custom time range graphs.
We’ve added an additional function for district and county administrators on UClass! UClass has recently released a new administrative control panel for managing district platform users. Administrators can now manage their district or county’s teacher information and grant administrative permission all on one page. If you’re an administrator, take a higher-level view of your district and check out your admin panel for yourself!
UClass is introducing four major feature updates that will take your curriculum planning to the next level. Take a peek at what the new and improved UClass has to offer!
Resource Privacy Capability
Don’t want anyone else to access your files while searching through the resource database? Just edit your file’s privacy to keep that file only available to you. Click on the drop down next to your file, select “Edit” and uncheck the “public” setting.
Clickable Activity Feed
Check out the resources that teachers in your network are uploading. Our activity feed is now interactive! If you notice a resource that interests you on the activity feed, you can click and immediately access it for yourself.
Direct File Upload
No need to navigate to a separate upload page anymore–now you can manage all of your resources directly from the files page! You can now upload files with a browser window, add a link, and utilize our Google Drive integration to migrate files over. See the menu at the top right just under the search bar.
Reorganize all of your files with the multi-select tool! You can move or delete multiple files and folders at once.
To all of our science teachers out there, feel free to cheer, because UClass has now enabled Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) resource-tagging.
Our dev team has been hard at work and has the updated standards functionality to prove it! In addition to the NGSS and CCSS, administrators can also assign their districts access to Universal Design for Learning (UDL) standards. For California districts, this new update includes California Content Standards for science and history-social science (CACSS and CACSHSS) as well.
