New Features in September 2017

Monthly update on what we’ve built

Every month, we implement new features to make online learning as effective as in-person learning. Here’s what we’ve done this month.

The New Altcademy Blue

To kick-start, we introduced a new blue!

No, we didn’t spend millions of dollars in picking this color; nor was it chosen with some scientific methods. We just stumbled upon this color and thought its sharpness fits better into what we do — making our students sharper and smarter.

Here are some real effects on websites and designs.

Freebie courses on Classroom

Freebie courses (Bitcoin 101, Coding 101 and DS 101) have been added to Classroom. These courses were previously delivered through emails only.

Incremental changes were added to Classroom. It’s now showing you more relevant information about your courses.

Assignments Submissions & Instructor Feedback

We are building a centralized platform for you to see and submit assignments. So far, the student engagement rate has already been improved by 10 times.

There’s a timeline of changes for each assignment. You’ll know the deadline. Instructors can send back with comments. And, hopefully, you will pass all assignments!
