Destiny Discover Updates and Enhancements
In Need of Improvement
The change in the Discover page Learning Links has not been well received. We agree with you that they don’t look appealing and that the ability to make changes to the interface in Discover has take a negative turn when Follett said there would be more customizability, not less. We continue to work with Follett to improve this feature, or at least put it back the way that it was. Follett is a large corporation and so sometimes enhancements and changes like this take time.
Another sore subject is the "Related Stuff" feature in the simplified view. Follett has turned that feature off until further notice because they are fixing a bug. The plan is to restore the feature once the bug is fixed.
The most important point we continually bring up to Follett is that they need to communicate with customers if they plan to make big changes to the interface and features. We have explained to Follett how this impacts you and the students.
Please continue to submit enhancement requests, showing what the impact on student learning is when these types of changes are made. Believe it or not, Follett does take these requests seriously. Submitting enhancement requests is the best and fastest way to let Follett know that you are displeased.
If you have not done so already, please create a Customer Portal account so that you can submit the requests. Please contact Amanda if you do not have all the information you need to create the account.
