WileyPLUS Release Notes: 2019-November-5th

Version 3

    If you have any questions about the latest release features, please contact your WileyPLUS Customer Success Specialist or send a message to customersuccess@wiley.com.

     

    In this release on November 5th, both instructors and students received improved dashboards for our standalone courses. For instructors, you can now see all Current and Past courses right from your Dashboard. If you have a WileyPLUS Test Drive, or a course not ready to be activated for students, you will find those courses in your new Draft tab. Remember that students cannot register for a Draft course.  Lastly, instructors can now navigate to their Administration area of WileyPLUS by clicking on the Actions dropdown. Instructors can quickly Course Copy, Edit or Add Sections and get their Student Registration Flyer, as well as view their students enrollment status.

     

    Instructors can also now access the WileyPLUS Instructor Academy from the dashboard where they can engage with training lessons and modules to best use the platform.  Additionally, instructors can now access the WIleyPLUS Studio from the dashboard where they can join Wiley’s online community of WileyPLUS instructors to swap best practices with peers, find inspiration, share feedback, and get rewards.

     

    Students also received an improved dashboard. Now students can easily see if they need to upgrade their service for a course, how many days are left to their Free Trial, easily access their Gradebook for each course, and email their instructors.
