New! Embedded Video Widget for Authored Docs (ie...YouTube)
A new authoring tool widget has been added to allow adding embedded videos into your authoring tool documents. The most common use case being YouTube. The widget will allow an author to copy-n-paste their embed code from providers such as YouTube, Vimeo, Wistia, and add the video to course documents. The video will fit into a template-driven formatted section of the course document for uniform delivery.
For instructions on how to add an embedded video, find our KB article here.
New! User Input Authoring Widget
As part of our push to add new functionality to our native authoring tool, we have begin a new project for collecting, storing and making use of learner input while in a course. The first of a few different input collecting options, the "User Input" will provide a widget that allows an author to build a problem statement and then an empty input box the learner to complete while in the training. The intent of this specific input widget is to:
- Providing the learner a problem to solve with a written response that can be collected and shared with a teacher.
- This input is collected, stored and then provided in a downloadable worksheet for learners.
This is the first of a few different input widgets. Following next will be a Course Feedback widget, to collect feedback and share with instructors. Then a Learner Notes widget for allowing learners to enter in any notes while going through the specific course page. Stay tuned!
Fixed! Assessment-to-Course Link Doesn't Save if Already Linked
An issue where assessments that were being linked to a course that already had an assessment linked weren't saving properly. We have fixed the issue by providing a 'link check' when an author tries to link an assessment to a course while in the Assessment Builder. The check looks to see if an assessment is already linked to the course and alerts the author if that is the case.
