:wave: Hey Educators,

We have recently released a new look for the GitHub Classroom Dashboard!

Please let us know what you think.

Hi, the individual class widgets say “latest assignments” but show the oldest(!) assignments. Kind regards, Thomas

Also, the coloured widget title background introduces a lot of noise and makes class names harder to read.

I like the new look and feel, but the filter/search option seems like it’s not working yet.

I like the new look. Will there be any additional features or enhancements that we can expect coming up?

This looks good

I agree with the comment about a lot of noise.

In the previous iteration it showed the icon for the organization. I was able to use that icon to visually filter out all but the current term. In this iteration its just a lot of classrooms in a list. While its pretty, it is a step back in functionality. My vote is for functional over pretty. Filtering or sorting or something is needed to make this useful.

I agree 100% with Paula. I suppose my new process will be to delete the Classroom once the term is over, perhaps that’s what I was supposed to do all along.

Either way though, I think the organization icon needs to be displayed. I use the same icon in multiple platforms for a given course and it makes switching between Canvas, Github, Travis, and Classroom much cleaner when everything just looks the same.

Nice Initiative

They have added a search feature. Does this aid you in any way?

Yes. This is helpful. I include the class and the term in the description so I can now just see this terms classes.
