Aviary Education News: Direct Download Buttons!

If you're subscribed to our Aviary Education newsletter, you've already heard about these updates. If you're not, and would like to be notified first next time, sign up here!

It's the moment all teachers and their students have been waiting for! You've all been patiently relaunching and resaving the apps in Aviary Education in order to download your creations, an arduous process that we despised from the beginning.

Luckily, you won't ever have to do this again. Each creation on Aviary Education (images and audio alike!) now has its own download button directly underneath it. Just click and it'll download - it's that simple! Phew.

Please note that teachers can download any creations, but students are only able to download their own. Also, remember that you have the ability to download .egg files (the layered Aviary files) from within the apps to your desktop for backup saving, but this isn't the same as flattening your creation and saving it as a normal image or audio file.

A couple other minor updates that we think will improve your experience in a major way:

  • Creations are now ordered with most recent first.
  • We added paging, so you won't have to load all creations at once.
  • And in case you missed it, last time we announced the ability to delete teacher accounts, persistent project info, and optional comments.

As always, your feedback is invaluable to us. Let us know how it goes, or if there's anything else we can do to make your experience with Aviary Education even better! Email us at edu@aviary.com or follow us @aviaryeducation to join the conversation.
