We implemented a couple of new features that students have been asking for. 

The first one is called "Lecture autocomplete". It saves you time by marking a lecture as complete automatically. Prior to this update, you had to click on the "Mark Complete" button. Very often, students just forgot to do this, and this left the curriculum littered with lectures marked incomplete, even though the student had completed them.

The second one is called "Course progression transcript". This is a new page that shows a summary of your progression through all the courses you are enrolled in. The transcript shows the number of completed vs outstanding lectures, and your quiz scores. We are looking to provide more detailed progression reports in the future. This is just the start.

Please watch this short video, where I demonstrate the new features.
