Office Lens

Screen Shot 2016-02-04 at 9.58.53 AMIf you find yourself needing to take photos of whiteboards or documents, I highly recommend trying Office Lens, a free app from Microsoft:

“Office Lens trims, enhances and makes pictures of whiteboards and docs readable, and saves them to OneNote. You can use Office Lens to convert images to PDF, Word and PowerPoint files too.”

I’ve been using it for the last week I’m really liking it! It’s simple, elegant, and very easy to use. The biggest thing I love about it is that it smoothly flattens images taken at an angle. Super helpful!

Removing Students from a Class Policy Class

Class Policy integrates with our Veracross class rosters in a way that adds students whenever new students enter a class, but it does not delete students who have left a class. In order to remove a student:

1. On the main screen that lists all of your classes, double click the class you would like to change to enter edit mode

2. Click on the student(s) you want to remove from the class and then click on the appropriate selection on the left-hand side.

As always, if you have any trouble or questions, feel free to email Kim, Josh, Carey, or support.
