The Pro Plan comes to the web.
2014 was a massive year for easygenerator, we have rapidly developed many features such as Co-Authoring, Course Reviews, 8 new question types, tracking and tracing results and custom languages. We have launched the Starter and Plus Plan for teachers and Subject Matter Experts, gathered tons of feedback which we took to heart and added to easygenerator and welcomed our 5000th user (we’re now well over 7000!)
So what’s in store for 2015?
In 2015 we will bring the Pro Plan to the web, the complete e-learning solution for instructional designers. I will breakdown the most important features below.
With result navigation you will be able to define navigation rules based on the result of the learner. Based on an answer given, an assessment result or progress on a learning objective you can navigate a user to a specific page or part of your course. This way you can offer them a personalized learning experience based on their needs.
With Easygenerator’s Pro Plan you will be able to create interactions on a page that can be triggered either by time or by user behaviour. Think of pop ups with extra context, video’s, links, audio, all triggered by time or behavior.
New and Redesigned templates
In 2015 we will add a reader template for courses that are read only and contain no questions.We will bring out a newly designed quiz template, with improved layout and user interaction based on user feedback.
We already offer custom languages, but we will add more default translations to the templates, so all default elements will be in your own language. If we don’t have your language you will be able to translate all templates in the application yourself fast and easy. We will also expand the options to change the templates to your look and feel.
Question Pools and Assessments
We will add the option to create assessments in easygenerator, we call them ‘question pools’. You can run a whole question pool or draw any number of specific questions to present to your learner. We will also add options to the existing question types and add a few new ones like the open question and the video and sound question type.
You will be able to upload and store not only images, but also video and sound files and we will make it possible to include a whole range of documents in your courses (like word and pdf the option to include html5 interactions. We will of course also offer extra content management facilities in order to manage these files. The content management will also include an option to reuse elements from courses, not only through copy and paste, but also by reusing them as elements in the content management part of easygenerator.
A much requested feature is to be able to have overs in courses, to guide the user to questions and pages.
Currently the way to add video’s in easygenerator is to embed them from third party video hosting sites like youtube and vimeo. In 2015 we will have our own video hosting to offer secure video content.
