Gooru “Extreme Makeover” Coming this Summer!

We are excited to share that a brand new Gooru will be arriving in June 2016! These updates to Gooru are designed to support you and your students as they navigate their learning to help them understand where they are, where they need to go, and what pathway best fits the way they learn.

Check out this 2-minute video sneak peek to see what’s coming up in June.

New features to help navigate learning
A brand new look and feel, including a new interface to navigate content. With the Course Map, students will always know where they are in your course: what they’ve studied, their past performance, and what’s coming next.
Monitor individual and class progress on formative assessments in real-time. Dynamic dashboards for teachers support immediate intervention, integrating powerful features fromExitTicket.org.

Students can use improved analytics to get instant feedback and a breakdown of scores by skill and standard, as well as tools to help you track student progress.

What does this mean for your content and classes?

  • What about your content? Not to worry—your existing courses, collections, and assessments on Gooru will still be available. Gooru will continue to be free for students and teachers, forever.
  • Why June? We chose to release these changes at the end of the school year so you could use the summer to transition slowly. If you’re planning to use Gooru heavily this summer, especially your Gooru classes, please let us knowso we can support you.
If you have additional questions, please email us at info@gooru.org.
