Extempore is launching an updated version of the Content Management System aimed at simplifying the instructor experience. New features include:
1.- “View as student” button
Going forward, you won’t need to create a student in order to view your oral assignments. Clicking on the “View Class as Student” link will create a new student user for you and will open the Extempore Student Web Experience in a new tab. This new user’s name will be your instructor user name with “-student” added at the end and it will have the same password as your instructor user.
You can of course use this user both on the web and on the app at no cost.
2.- Simplified Assessment Creation Page
The assessment pages have been re-written to facilitate the assessment creation process. For those who just want a simple speaking practice activity, a “collapsed” view will allow you to create an assessment with a simple click of a button.
If you are are looking to create a more complex assessment, such an oral exam, expanding the parameters will give you access to the full power of Extempore. Additionally, explanation videos are now available in every page, in case you need a refresher.
We hope these changes will continue to make your experience easier and more enjoyable, but as always, if you have questions or comments, feel free to email them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
