Press Release: Odysseyware improves student experience with enhanced Notes feature
Update created in response to customer feedback
(CHANDLER, Ariz.) April 16, 2014 — Just months after unveiling their new user interface, which includes a highly anticipated Notes feature, Odysseyware has added even more refinement to their online curriculum platform.
“Our product development team put in long hours to make sure our improved Notes feature is as sleek and user-friendly as possible,” said Beth TeGrotenhuis, the president and COO of Odysseyware’s parent company, Glynlyon. “We’re thrilled with the results, and I hope our customers will be too.”
The previous version of Odysseyware allowed teachers to write notes in an individual box on lessons. Although customers appreciated this ability, teachers asked for a way to leave multiple notes in a single assignment. They also wanted to extend this function to students. Responding to this user feedback, Odysseyware gave customers what they asked for.
With the redesigned Notes feature, both students and teachers can now write multiple notes directly in the margins of every assignment. This allows teachers to create more context-specific notes, and saves students the hassle of flipping between tabs to study more effectively. For intuitive organization, teachers’ notes appear in red while students can choose from a variety of note colors. All notes can also be printed for offline learning.
“The feedback we receive from customers is valuable to everyone at Odysseyware. It helps us make our content even more student-friendly,” said TeGrotenhuis. “We always welcome ideas to enhance Odysseyware, and the Notes feature is just the latest example.”
