The best things we’ve clicked on lately


1
Two scholars argue that the syllabus is an overlooked way to reimagine teaching.

2
A video journey to the end of time.

3
This map miraculously resolves the opposing design philosophies of Massimo Vignelli & Michael Hertz,” wrote graphic designer Michael Bierut upon seeing the new [NYC subway] map, “in a way that I suspect would please both of them.”

4
A handy list of human words. It's written from a UI copy perspective, but my mind runs wild thinking of how to apply this to writing for learners (which you're probably doing a great job at already) and my own teammates.

5
It's a cat with a bongo, cowbell, and more, just waiting for your keyboard's direction.

 
Show & Tell

My teammate Laurie (you may know her from Support conversations) published a thorough guide to Assessments in our Help Center last week. She walks through the types, use cases, when to use autograding vs. manual grading, and tons more. If you've been looking to get question-y, this is the best place to start.

 
News from HQ

For the past few months we've been working on a set of calendar features. You'll soon get a concise way to view when things are due, plus the power to send due dates automatically to your own calendar. This calendar view will make planning simpler for you and tracking a cinch for your learners. More on this soon.

Did you know we offer free demos you can schedule yourself and time to talk about interesting problems in education (shoot Christian an email)? See how things work with us. You don't have to find the optimal approach on your own.

We had power outages around here at HQ last week. I'd forgotten how much I love reading on my Kindle in the dark. Hopefully your power's on and you're safe wherever you are. It's going to be interesting out there for a while, my friends. Here's to finding your path, even in the weirdness.
