Buzz LMS Updates

  • Spring 2019 Updates to Buzz

    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 Have Taken Place in the Student App

    Students can now see their averages in all of their courses on one screen. When students log into Buzz, they can now go to a universal gradebook to see a list of the courses that they are enrolled in and their grades within those courses. To locate the gradebook students need to click on the three white lines in the upper left corner of their screen and then select "Gradebook."

    Once in this gradebook students will be able to see a listing of all of their courses, their grades in the courses, self-assessments, teachers names, and how far they are in the course.
