Version 13 is on schedule

The new update from version 12 to 13 is in final stages of testing and will be released to the community in the coming weeks. A quick look at some new features!
  • A brand new online editor allows instant podcasts, videos and images to be included in your work.
  • New features for calendar items and sticky notes allows users to add expiry times for notices.
  • Our new video recording tool is being released, allowing users to create their own videos.
  • A new instant gallery tool allows you to view any of your folders as a fullscreen gallery - great for slideshows and presentations.
  • Indexing support. Most files that you upload will now be automatically indexed, so that you can search your platform for text that resides inside your files - and see previews too!
  • New options for instant popups, now allow you to send notices to groups, and individuals at the same time.
  • Many other improvements with regard to class management, user creation, administration and support for Internet Explorer 7 and 8.

Improved support for Internet Explorer 7 and 8

The My Learning development team have continued to improve features for users with Internet Explorer 7 and 8 with many upgrades to improve user management, messaging and the creation of instant popups.

Users who are still using Internet Explorer 6 must note that this browser is now 9 years old. Whilst we provide basic support for this browser, in order to benefit from an enhanced experience, we encourage all these users to upgrade before the autumn term.
