We are pleased to announce that a brand new release of IntoScience (version 1.6) is now live!
This release brings changes in two main areas to the web version of IntoScience: a WebGL client for those using the Chrome browser (and Chromebooks); and a simpler, streamlined interface, focused on helping students and teachers find what they want, when they want.
NEW | TEACHER DASHBOARD
> A teacher dashboard – provides a clear way to find useful tutorials and resources
> Teacher tutorials – a website dedicated to helping you learn how IntoScience works
> Troubleshooting page – full of common questions, problems and known issues
> Curriculum information page – provides information on how all the activities map to your curriculum
> Links to specific activities – send your students a link for homework
With all the advantages of digital technology, sometimes nothing beats pen and paper. Whether you have a student who is keen to extend their knowledge, or feel more comfortable with a back-up plan, find a worksheet to accompany your next activity.
We’ve brought in the WebGL client in response to an upcoming release of the Chrome browser which disables the Unity Plugin (which powers IntoScience on the web) completely. WebGL is an exciting new technology, removing the need for a plugin and making IntoScience available to Chromebooks. Unfortunately, it is still a fairly young technology, and as such we expect it to be less stable than the Unity plugin version so please bear with us…
