The festive season is almost here, which means 2018 is coming to a close! Before we reflect on what a year it has been, we would first like to thank you, our community, for your support and continuous inspiration for Schoolbox’s product direction. It has been a big year for the Schoolbox team, so we would like to take a moment to reflect on some of the most memorable moments. Two big releases This year, we introduced v18 and v18.1 of Schoolbox. With these releases came some really exciting new features, including assessment differentiation, student self-reflection and self-assessment, and the Atlas course importer, among many more. We also completely redesigned our News system and rubrics, adding several innovative new functions. We unveiled our new website Our new website includes plenty of features we know schools will love, such as the ability to subscribe to receive resources like case studies, videos, and white papers, straight in your inbox. We re-branded We re-branded Schoolbox with a new tag line, which better emphasises our strength as a market-leading portal and learning management system: Because learners thrive in a connected community. We got social! Schoolbox got Instagram! There is now another platform where you can get your dose of product updates and what’s happening with the team. To keep up-to-date, follow us at @schoolbox. As well as all this, we still found time to welcome 6 new staff members to the team. Wow! It has been quite the year. See you in 2019! The Schoolbox office will be closed from the 21st of December, but we’ll be back in action on the 2nd of January. Our servers will be closely monitored during the break, and you can still direct any urgent calls to our legendary Support team. If you miss us too much during this time, you can follow us on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Instagram for your Schoolbox fix. Thank you again for guiding our product direction and helping us to continue to grow and improve Schoolbox. We can’t wait to see you in the new year!
