Do you have a desire to view some of the new features that will be coming soon to Springboard (D2L)? We are installing version 9.2 on our TEST system today. You will be able to try out the new features beginning tomorrow. Beginning tomorrow, login at springboardtest.uakron.edu from a campus network or VPN client.

We will install the new features on our PRODUCTION environment on May 11th, 2011. We are looking forward to the following enhancements:

  • The ability to post to discussions from a mobile device
  • Dramatic improvements to Rubrics
  • Integrated audio recording from within multiple areas of the Learning Environment and ePortfolio
  • Enhancements to the Pager
  • New release conditions, including user enrollment dates and rubric scores;

We will test heavily to verify all is ready for the May 11th upgrade and we hope you will take a peek and let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
