Resources for the new Discussion interface
As you know, the Academy’s new online discussion interface launched last semester. Lots of resources are available to help you and your students get up to speed.
A new way to critique images
A new tool called "Notes" lets you annotate students’ images by adding callouts, along with text, audio, or video commentary. And you can do all this from your smartphone or tablet! (Or your computer, of course.)
This new tool is a first step toward replacing the existing Flash-based whiteboard, which will continue to be available in the meantime.

Notifications for students
A new notifications tool lets students know when their online instructor has taken an action that affects them directly. This includes:
- Making a new post
- Posting a comment the student's post
- Marking up an image the student has posted
- Grading an assignment
- Posting progress, midterm or final grades
- Adding an Instructor Update to an assignment
Notifications can be viewed by clicking the bell icon on the main toolbar at the top of any page in the LMS.
