  1. This is the guidance we have issued to staff: Guidance.docx
  2. We have a bit of an organic approach - which can at times be confusing for students. Given school closures and 'remote learning' it has become far more important that this is clear and easy to get. Most of that is down to us as a school to get our guidance right, however, there may be things that could be changed/improved that would also help. Currently our staff are using a mixture of: The feedback application (which more people would use if it more reliably converted documents or allowed line breaks in comments) but when it does work the stickers are great and audio feedback is supported! Feedback in this way get's flagged in lots of places with the "Purple pen icon". The message wall on the assignment - this is good for two way dialog but could do with more space to type and a message delete button. It does support line breaks in the messages! Feedback in this way get's flagged in some places with the "blue number icon". The comments box on the bottom of the assignment - when a comment is written in this box it doesn't get flagged (a real benefit of the first two). Staff need to tell students to look or students need to look in every assignment. In addition I don't think we have pushed the assignments app enough (not since current assignments were introduced into the frog bar), so a lot of students fall at the first hurdle when trying to find their feedback. The assignments calendar widget helps a bit with this, but it only has flags for feedback via #1 above. The assignments app has flags for #1&2 above, but the tabbed layout (open, handed in, closed) - which really helps staff organise their assignments - again gets in the way of finding feedback for some students. The ideal for me would be: something like the assignment calendar widget with a month view or list view which flags all three methods of feedback above (or at the very least the first two to bring it in line with the assignments app) has a filter that can be set to only show assignments with one or more of these types of feedback Thoughts? Also why is there sometimes no feedback button on uploaded documents with the purple pen icon? Take this as an example... Clicking on Trigonometry... Gives me feedback buttons to press, But clicking on 'First task'... No feedback button. Student has to go into assignments app, find the assignment in hundreds of others in the 'handed in' tab and then they can press the feedback button!

    Permissions change?

    Yes, we are, but you shouldn't need the file extension. Try taking the extension off your example - it should still work! @adamw I tried with my admin account and it still gave me the permission error.

    Permissions change?

    We have some direct links to files that have been uploaded as site assets. e.g. we upload a word document and use a text widget to serve it via its link: https://froglearn.backwellschool.net/app/file/resource/15F2D9232003061952ADCF6034A2C9046E21F56CFF133428 In the past this has allowed us to quickly put lots of files up into a site. Despite this working for years and despite users having the correct view permissions to the site they have been uploaded to, the links no longer work. We get a you are not authorised to access this page message. Is this a result of a recent change? Many hours of work would be lost of we needed to re-upload these files individually into file link widgets.
  5. I'd like to hear from people about their 'remote learning' strategies. Assuming your strategy has frog at it's center, what have you done about: expectations around frequency of work set - does this differ for different year groups? what will students hand in (if anything) what are your expectations around feedback? have you prescribed how this should be done by staff? what other software/platforms are you using with frog? Teams? Google? Office 365? how are you monitoring all of this from staff and students perspectives? Is this through assignment monitor or is there a more useful report we could ask frog to think about? Thanks

    Exam Timetables?

    When i paste this into an Exam Timetable widget i don't get the same as what is shown in your video. The Code and Seat columns show "undefined". Which is the same as the pdf error message, which I can now replicate. In the data above 'ClassCode' should be 'CompCode' and 'Seat Number' should be 'Seat'. Also the duration's need to be treated like text. This means they need to be wrapped in quotation marks, Once i make these changes the pdf is produced despite the seats being blank!

    Exam Timetables?

    Interesting. Can you paste a small sample of the data pasted into the widget? (Maybe the first student will be enough - you can change the upn to keep it anonymous). Still think it is to do with the seat....
  8. Go the whole way @Graham Quince and allow items to be dragged and dropped into a bespoke order!

    Exam Timetables?

    @pdurber I can't replicate this issue. At first I thought it might be related to not having seats in the imported data, but i tried it on my platform with no seats and the pdf was created as expected. What error messages are in the console window? In Chrome click on the three dots top right --> more tools --> developer tools. Switch to the console tab. Click the pdf button and then post a screen shot of any message(s) that appear.
  10. The console would normally be blank. Unless there is a problem and then there could be a red error message

    Picture Series

    Not AWOL, just OFSTED. Anyway frogcode is bust at the moment so waiting for that fix first!
  12. I can't replicate this - the most recent set of reports we did was 23/01/20 and these are appearing for parents. There have been some weird things happening since the patch last week - have you done any reports since then? Are there any error messages in the console (right click -> inspect --> console tab) that could shed any light? Even if the problem was obvious, FrogCode was broken last Wednesday, so I don't even have a way of fixing the issue!

    FDP oAuth Question

    So how would i/could i go about using frog authentication for an external app?
  14. Is the information in the FDP docs (circled in red below) up to date? My frog server doesn't seem to have the urls mentioned and there is talk of a toolkit which makes me think of frog3!
