QR Code Student Sign-In
Students can now sign in with a QR code, eliminating the need to remember a username or password. Teachers and Administrators can issue sign in QR codes for students, classes, and even the entire school. QR codes can be saved or printed in multiple formats, from a Discovery Education Classroom or My Admin.

Improvements to Search
This month, we’ve made two improvements to search so that you can more easily discover content for your classroom:
- We’ve updated our search matching logic so that your search terms lead to more targeted search results. What does that mean for you? Search terms with more specificity will yield more tailored results – for example, searching magic school bus will lead to accurate results from the Magic School Bus series, whereas searching magic school bus arctic will result in the Magic School Bus: In the Arctic episode. Spend less time searching and scrolling and more time diving into the content with your students.
- You can now search from the global navigation with one less click. The search bar is now visible by default so that you can easily jump in and find what you’re looking for.
