Our friends at Follett Learning have an exciting update!
Destiny 17.0 is here and along with this announcement comes some super awesome changes and updates. As shared on Follett Community,
New features are coming your way this summer:
When I received this email yesterday that said, Your Destiny 17.0 Update Is Here, I went right to work in Destiny to make and see these updates and changes for myself.
Let me show what I did and give you a little peak at what Destiny 17.0 holds for all of us, especially our kids.

it opens up that specific Collection by Destiny on the next screen. This will bring your students and teachers to so many resources that you want want to share and use within these Collections in just one click.

I know they will LOVE seeing the NEW Destiny too!
