Writelike now saves student writing automatically
Big quality of life improvement! Writelike now saves student writing in the browser until they click Complete Page, after which the response will be published for peers & teacher. It means students can close their browser with draft content and come back to find it still there.
The old system has been bugging everyone for ages, so we're glad to have fixed it!
New export features in Frankenstories
Students can copy just their own replies
By popular demand, we've added a button that lets students download only their own replies from a game.
If your students open a game they've played, they can click Copy text > Copy my replies then paste the text into a document.
Teacher export is now grouped by student
We've also changed the teacher's export report to group replies by student rather than round:
The teacher export still comes as a file that you can open in Excel or Sheets, so you can sort it however you like, but we've been getting the sense that most teachers want to see the replies grouped by student rather than by round, so we made that the default.
And Frankenstories round instructions now appear earlier!
Another quality of life improvement: if a Frankenstories game has round instructions, students will get a preview of all the instructions at once while waiting in the lobby.
This lets players see where the game is headed and pace themselves better.
Also, during the game, the instruction for the upcoming round will appear earlier, during the awarding phase, giving students more time to think about what they want to write next.
