News & Updates
Course Management Dashboard Redesign
The course management dashboard has been redesigned! After interviewing instructors and doing a lot of research, we’ve revamped the dashboard to make it more user-friendly. This is still in beta, so please feel free to give us feedback. Read the blog post here.
Early Access Beta Program
In this beta program, we hope to understand student expectations by giving them the opportunity to review courses. They’re given limited access to the courses, and will be giving detailed feedback for instructors based on the content and teaching style. Please note that during this beta period, the Quality Review process will continue as normal. Read the blog post here.
