I shared this yesterday on Twitter with a bunch of CoSpaces Ambassadors but it did not seem to be something they’d dealt with. As such the only real suggestions I got were turn it off and on again and check everything is updated. Both valid suggestions but both things I had tried long before reaching out,
Here is the original call for help from one of the teachers I work with -
Hi Steve, I thought I’d share my experience with CoSpaces so far. I assigned an assignment for two year 4 classes and coding club today. However each session was plagued with problems.
The main problems (which affected approximately 40% of my class in each lesson) included:
Excessively long loading times.
Environments not loading properly
Characters not available for selection in the bottom of the screen
Characters not loading instead being replaced by a red box with an X.
NB the students are using the new 2018 model iPads.
The app is up to date
The iOS is up to date.
So I then checked using two of my own devices (iPad Pro 2 and an iPad 2018) and found one was working fine and the other demonstrated some of the same issues (e.g. assets were not loading in properly)
This was at my house rather than the school so that ruled out a network problem at school.
Also mine are not enrolled on our MDM so that was also ruled out.
I left the iPads for a couple of hours and then happened to check them again and found that both were ok at this point with all assets in place. This makes me think it’s something to do with caching??
Any help greatly apprecaited guys. I’m trying to win staff over to the platform and if it’s inconsistent or unreliable, that simply won’t happen!
