Online Learning Improvements

With more and more schools relying on QuickSchools to deliver online learning, we’re introducing a few new features in the coming months, the first of which is the new WYSIWYG toolbar when creating Homework and Lesson Plans:

You’ll also find that when navigating between modules like Homework, Gradebook and Subject-based Lesson Plans, the system will remember the selected subject:

Finally, just to make things a little more obvious for students and parents on their respective portals, we’ve created a dedicated “Homework” tab:

In the near feature, the menu will be enabled by default when the Homework module is enabled.

Feel free to configure these setting before activating a new (and empty) academic term. To learn more about Admin Columns, check out this article.
