  • New My Grades tile - direct link to see your current grades on E:vision
  • New bookmark to Skills for Learning - find guides, workshops and support from the LIS SKills for Learning team
  • Removed PebblePad tile from mobile view - PebblePad does not function on phones because it uses Flash technology
  • New tile layout - we have put the most used tiles near the top for easy access and grouped similar tiles together
  • New style - we have removed the gradient on the tiles by default for a more modern, cleaner look

If you don't like the new layout or default style, you can personalise your dashboard to make it look exactly how you want.

If you have already personalised it, but your layout looks a bit different after this release, you can reset it back to the default layout.

For details of how to personalise and reset the dashboard, see the general FAQ.
