Technical updates for the Southern Hemisphere
We have some exciting updates coming soon to Hāpara.
Changes to student privacy settings in Highlights – In order to respect student privacy, we’ve updated the Hāpara Admin Console to better reflect our Ethical Monitoring policy. We’re asking schools to limit the monitoring window for Highlights to ten hours — a typical school day.
Undo Smart Share – Teachers will soon have the ability to undo a Smart Share job. If documents were shared with students accidentally, teachers will be able to click Unshare to remove the files from learners’ Drives. The Unshare button will be active for five minutes after a Smart Share job has been completed.
The updated Workspace interface for teachers offers new ways to organise Workspaces, the option to add cover images to Workspaces and access to the new Discover page, where teachers can find thousands of public Workspaces ready for use.
Right now, teachers can opt in to see these changes — however, the changes will be rolled out to everyone during the July break.
