The New VeriCite:
Thursday, September 21– 1:00 – 2:00 pm
VeriCite has changed! It is now integrated with SpeedGrader and the reports are now more robust! Also, the option to use VeriCite as an External Tool is no longer available. There is no more setting up two assignments and not having SpeedGrader for document markup! The new interface is great, and is what many instructors have requested! In 30-45 minutes instructors will learn how to transition from the External Tool VeriCite to the use of VeriCite in SpeedGrader and preview the new reporting interface.
