Information on our latest releases provides a
sneak peek into our development plans for the next 12 months.
Easygenerator publishes three major releases per
Because of our agile
development methods, and because easygenerator is a SaaS solution
we could update our production servers every two weeks. But we
don't. We deploy the latest version on our test and demo servers,
allowing customers to experience the updates and give us their
opinion. We use customer input and feedback to fine-tune our
There is a simple reason why we
do this: we have truly great ideas but we don't know everything.
That's why we will repeat this release cycle every year. This gives

This release will include new learning metaphors. Learning
metaphors allow for the design and presentation of e-Learning in a
different way to the learner. These new metaphors closely align to
the "adaptive" or "individual" learning solutions implemented in

insight to the learner, focusing the learner's attention to those
areas of the course where comprehension is low. Learning metaphors
give the learner more control of his own learning process. Kasper

Case based learning
is a very powerful form of e-Learning that helps connect learning

is already possible; however, this release will be simplifying the
creation of the complex navigation structure and feedback. In
addition, other functionality will help to make it easier to
implement this type of e-Learning.
Another goal for this release
is to replace all existing Flash in the standard product (a number
of question types) with an HTML version.
