Welcome to the third monthly user update (8/16/2021)!

As the summer comes to a close, it is once again time for a user update for the NuVu Platform. We've seen huge improvements across the Slide Editor and other portions of the website. In the coming months, we'll be continuing work on the Slide Editor, but less emphasis will be placed on its sole development. Instead, we will be dividing our efforts and working on other projects, such as the Toolbox, Templates Redesigns and much more! This change log encompasses updates from the end of June to the middle of August.

  • Tables in the Slide Editor
  • Release of Slide Editor to all NuVuX Schools
