Buzz Discontinues SMS Text Notifications

Accelerate Education customers using the Buzz LMS should be aware that Buzz has discontinued text notifications for users. Previously, users – including students, teachers, and observers – could opt in to receive text notifications about relevant Buzz activity such as an assignment being submitted, a grade being posted, etc.

While text notifications are no longer available, users can continue to opt-in to receive key notifications via email.

Customers should consider proactively alerting their users about this change.

Delivering Accelerate Courses in Schoology

Schools who have adopted Schoology as their Learning Management System can now deliver Accelerate Education courses directly in Schoology without sacrificing any of the features or functionality that platform has to offer.

Accelerate now offers full Schoology versions of most K-12 online courses. Beginning June 1st, these can be delivered to schools, fully configured, through a Schoology Group Resource. (Previously, the only option to access Accelerate courses from within Schoology was by way of a thin common cartridge.)

For more information about how Accelerate’s Schoology course delivery compares to delivery on other platforms, please see our support page on Hosting on Different LMS Platforms.

Schools interested in accessing Schoology course versions for SY22-23 may contact their Accelerate representative to obtain necessary access codes.
