Don’t be caught by surprise when school starts! DE Streaming has been made bigger and better than ever, but it doesn’t come without some twists and turns along the way.
First of all, there are a LOT of videos that were added from shows you love. For instance, the new, just-completed show “When We Left Earth” has many video segments added to DE Streaming. In addition, the quality of the videos has improved (even older videos have new compression settings).
Second, there is now a classroom management area in the Teacher Center. For the first time, your kids have access to DE Streaming through their own personal log-in! Now, instead of assigning a code to every builder you create, your builders are stored in classrooms for kids with one log-in code to access them all. Much smoother!
There are other improvements, but I’m not going to tackle them just yet. For now, you may find parts of DE Streaming not cooperating with you. Sit back. Take a deep breath. The tech department is aware of several bugs and glitches, and they are working hard to get them straightened out.
I will post some video tutorials a little later to this blog (when everthing seems to be working smoother). In the meantime, there are some webinars scheduled hosted by Mike Bryant of Discovery. You can check out his blog and webinar schedule here.
Let us know what you think of the changes!
