New Release: Subtext 1.5

Posted October 9, 2012 under New Features

We work every day to make Subtext a better service for you and your students—and to better understand the challenges and nuances of classroom reading and teaching. We watch usage patterns in Subtext, read articles on trends in learning and technology, follow blogs on language arts and so on. But we get our best ideas from teachers in the field like you. So we’re excited to announce a free update to Subtext that includes several of the most requested features from teachers using Subtext—most notably, highlighting and text to speech. Get the update today and let us know what you think!

What’s New in 1.5:

• Highlighting & Tagging: Teachers and students can highlight text, color code it and tag it as an example of a literary device or with a unique label like ‘Morality in Shakespeare.’ Notes can be marked as private as students read or study, shared with teachers in response to an assignment, or shared with a class or project group.

• Text to Speech: Students can read any digital book or document with text to speech enabled. The voiceover maps to the text so students can make connections between the words they’re hearing and seeing—and even pauses when they read or add a note. More Info »

• Filtering for Discussions/Student Activity: Now we give you more control over the notes you see in your Discussions Stream and when you view a student’s activity in Subtext. Only want to read a student’s Book Blog or quiz responses? No problem! More Info »
