Christmas facelift

Hi everyone, during the holiday period we've taken advantage of the spare time to enhance aspects of the My Learning suite. Specifically, the homework module inside courses is now much clearer and looks better. As always, we're also testing some new features that will allow teachers and administrators to create forms and templates on the VLE too.

The early part of 2011 should see some improved modules and a new blogging tool for users. As always, we'll keep you updated.

Version 14.2 released

We have now released the ability for school administrators to control exactly which facilities different types of users can use. This new management tool is entitled the "Module Manager" and is available from your "Manage" menu. It currently has support for controlling what Teachers and Students can see, but will shortly have support for Parents and Governors.

Version 14.2 also consists of 23 minor updates to visuals and addresses some minor issues reported by some schools.

Youtube videos containing a comma or apostrophe would fail.
Creating a new student user would select an invalid theme.

Module manager allows fine grain control of the VLE
Course manager menu allows you to manage course settings directly

Drag and Drop

We have now enabled drag and drop functionality within our file manager.

What can it do?
All users can drag files to any folder to move the file instantly into that location.

They can also move a file into the recycle bin to delete it or move a file over the 'back' button to move the file up one level into the folder above.

It is hoped that these features will improve the file management experience for everyone and makes things even easier to use!

Spellchecking available soon

Our team is busy looking at a new spell checking facility for our editor. This will allow users to check their spelling; and receive optional suggestions. There will be three levels of spell checking.

The good news is that since we support 67 languages, we will also be adding support for 67 dictionaries! So now, you can use your spell checker in your French lesson too!

This feature will be added to all existing clients in the coming weeks.
