Welcome To Buzz



Updates Coming to Buzz Summer of 2018

  • On July 12, 2018 Buzz will be switching over to the new interface.

    The New Buzz UI provides:

    1. A more intuitive user experience built with Google's Material Design. Which means the platform is now more mobile and tablet friendly. 

    2. Even more opportunities to customize the tool based on your users' needs and tech literacy.

    3. Opportunities to introduce new powerful features. 

    Changes That Will be Taking Place

    The Google integration that teachers and students have been asking for! 

    Teachers will now be able to provide students with their own copy of a Google Doc. This feature is similar to the “each student gets their own copy” feature that other systems have, making it easier for teachers to interact with students in the platform.

    CBT Alignment: Assessment features are now here! 

    OHM Learning Network is happy to share that the computer-based testing features can now be found within the Buzz system. Highlighter, notes, answer eliminator, bookmarking and reviewing questions can now be turned on within the online assessments in Buzz.
