What's new with Prodigies Academy?

2021

Manage your connected accounts inside settings.

Here you can view a quick summary of which third-parties you're currently integrated with, and if any of them require action on your behalf. If you're having issues syncing content to a third-party, we recommend refreshing your account on this page (found in Settings → Connected Accounts) first.

We improved our Canvas integration (re-login with Canvas required).

We made some improvements to the stability of our Canvas integration. Because of this, you'll likely need to re-authenticate with Canvas (and will be asked to do so the next time you sync content). Your district may need to enable additional scopes. If it does, you will be presented with a message that shows what scopes are missing.

Friendlier to Chromebooks, and a faster grading experience.

In this small update, we released a few visual tweaks and a few performance improvements. Notably, Chromebook users aught to have a friendlier experience as we've tweaked a few parts of the interface to give Chromebook users a bit more space.

The grades table now loads all assignments by default, and loads in grades as you scroll. No more scrolling, waiting, scrolling, and waiting! View all of your assignments at once and quickly scroll to the assignment you're looking for.

New schedule / sync indicators, and quicker access to assignment sync.

Inside the outline view, teachers now have access to a quick summary of the current locked status, scheduled date, and sync status of a piece of content (directly to the left of the enable switch).

Teachers can now also sync assignments directly from the outline view. Just hover over a piece of content, click the three dots that appear, and then click Sync with... when it pops up.

A more modern video player, with settings for allowing skipping.

We've just revamped the design of the video player for all video content, and added a volume control.

Additionally, teachers now have a setting inside Class Settings to configure whether or not students should be allowed to skip through videos if they haven't watched the whole video at least once. By default, students are not allowed to skip through videos until they watch it all the way through at least once.

Configure default assignment settings per class.

Instead of revealing answers on every assignment individually, teachers can now set default settings at the class-level for revealing answers and excluding assignments from the gradebook. These settings apply to newly-created assignments, so no need to keep manually updating them!
