**All Rezzly Legendary accounts get free access to our workshops, found inside the Quest Armory. Hope to see you there!
NEW PLATFORM FEATURES
We’re ramping up development in 2017 and currently working on single sign-on with Google and Canvas (LTI). Before summer arrives, you’ll also see a new avatar creator, as a first step toward creating items that can be awarded to students to add to their avatar. We’re also adding integration with the OpenEd library in the Quest Builder, giving you access to tens of thousands of free educational assets you can integrate into your quests.
We literally have hundreds of features we’d love to see in the platform. Feel free to add any wishlist function using the HELP button inside Rezzly. Our focus in 2017 will be on giving our users some new, engaging function and content, along with the development we need as a platform to integrate into a larger educational technology ecosystem, essential to support scaling of the platform.
We appreciate our teacher innovators–game on!
