There are now options to change the display to the Stream page. By default, the assignment notifications that show up on the Stream are condensed. Comments are also condensed. With the new options, you can now have the Stream return to classic view. What does this mean? Students can see all of their assignments and teachers can easily see if students have turned in work.
Go to the settings cog in the upper right hand corner on Classroom. Scroll to General settings and look for Classwork on the stream.
