Improved Teacher Profile Navigation

We have made navigating around your Teacher Profile much easier by adding static and dynamic links under the Teacher's profile picture and adding links to the main pages in the Teacher's personal menu at the top of the screen. There are no new pages created, however many of the dynamic links replace the big orange navigation buttons that used to show on certain Teacher Portfolio pages. These are now found in the list of links under the profile picture.

Static & Dynamic Links

 Static links are links that are on every page of the Teacher profiles. These are:

  1. My Profile
  2. My Portfolio 
  3. My Stories

Dynamic links are links that change depending on the page you are on. 

Development Notes and My Documents Sections Added to Teacher Profile Page

There are now two new fields available on the Teacher Profile page: Development Notes and My Documents. Both fields are editable by clicking "Edit Profile".

Development Notes is a space for Teachers to log private notes directly to their profile. Development Notes are not visible to parents.

My Documents allows Teachers to upload documents directly to their profile, such as qualification certificates and appraisals. My Documents are not visible to parents.

The About Me header on the teacher profile has also been changed to read Personal Statement

Upload Videos to Teacher Portfolio Posts

Videos can now be uploaded to Teacher Portfolio posts in the same way they are uploaded to children's learning stories. 

As per learning stories, only one video can be uploaded per post.

Updated "Welcome to Educa" Message Board post

We have removed the out-dated tutorial video on the "Welcome to Educa" Message Board post for all new centres and have fixed the post so it doesn't break out on mobile.

Added branding option "Participants" as Profile Type

A new branding option called "Participants" has been added for users who want to use a more neutral Profile Type for their service.

Plans Not Saving Bug Fix

We have resolved an issue where certain hidden characters in curriculum entries were causing plans to infinitely timeout on save, requiring user's to refresh their browser and lose some of their work.

Microsoft Edge Photo Re-sizing Bug Fix

Educa uses a third party word processing application called TinyMCE for all text boxes on the site. A bug within tinyMCE was stopping photos from being able to be resized on Microsoft Edge. TinyMCE resolved this issue and we updated our version to suit.

Learning Story Printing Extra Question Bug Fix 

We have resolved an issue where bullet points and numbered lists in the Extra Questions boxes on learning stories would not print.
