|Teacher view of pupil files in j2launch. Uploaded PDFs and a J2e5 resource|
It was simple to upload a video file created on my iPad and some Comic Life PDFs. Once in j2launch, teachers can assess pupil work against the literacy and numeracy framework and the digital competence framework statements. Teachers are also able to, among other features, engage the pupil in a learning conversation and create a QR code to share the work with others. All very impressive. However I do have a gripe. I would love to be able to see my pupils files stored in OneDrive in j2launch. I would then have Office365 files (Word, PowerPoint, Excel Online), J2e files and any other uploaded files all in one place, with the ability to assess, feedback and share pupil work. If my understanding is correct, a school that had bought J2e would have the ability to single sign on with their Office365 or G Suite for Education account. OneDrive and Google Drive files will then appear in j2launch allowing for marking, etc as described above. However, that option doesn't seem to be possible with the version available to schools through Hwb. That's a pity. I think teachers (and pupils) in Wales would find it really helpful if this version offered that solution. It would make the assessment and feedback of pupil's digital work, created on different platforms, so much easier.
