All our clients in the UK and overseas have now been upgraded. The process began at 17:39 and completed at 19:13 GMT. As a result, all editions are now using the new version, entitled "Dione". Registered users of our products will receive access to the release notes from their 'VLE Updates' channel.

Please note that we have updated the release notes within the last 20 minutes of this post as we decided to provide additional features which you will find in section 9 of the PDF file! We hope you enjoy this new version, and expect a few micro-patches during the weekend as we tinker with the controls.

The switch to MP4 videos

For some time, My Learning have been monitoring the staggering increase in video content used within the platform. We think it's brilliant, and this is mainly due to the fact that media management and support in My Learning has always been a particular focal point.

We're also astutely aware how many users are now using iPads with our software, which of course is fantastic!We all know that iPad's don't play Flash content.... and our video player is flash based!

Not any more! - In tomorrow's update, we'll be releasing an intelligent video player that will change itself according to the needs of the user. So, if you're using an iPad - you'll get the HTML5 player with MP4 videos. If you're a desktop PC or laptop, you'll get the HTML4 version. Flash will only be used as a last resort.

So, this means that in My Learning - you'll also be able to download your videos in MP4 format and use them elsewhere!
