GoSoapBox Version 2 Has Launched

Over the weekend, we deployed a significant update to GoSoapBox, our web-based student response system.

Before you run over to to see what changed, you should know this was mostly a behind-the-scenes deployment, with the major change being an overhaul of GoSoapBox’s real-time architecture.

Our old architecture had occasional delays in the data passed between students and teachers, sometimes taking up to five seconds for a vote to be added, or a question to be removed. With our new architecture, all real-time changes should occur in less than one second.

What else will you notice in Version 2?

  • Redesigned confusion barometer.
  • Discussion replies can now be hidden from the audience.
  • Updates to button styling.
