Product update: January 2020

Welcome to our first product update of the 2020s. Over the last month or so since our last update we’ve added some new features to help you support your learners. You can now add explanations for each answer option in single-choice questions. We’ve also made improvements to the All-in-one template’s look and feel, and made improvements to the application’s performance.

A custom explanation for each answer option

When your learners give incorrect answers it doesn’t mean that they failed. It just tells you that they don’t have the right knowledge yet to make the correct choice. The best practice is to use this as a learning moment, nudging your learners with a proper explanation. That’s why we developed our new feature: custom explanations for each answer option.

To add explanations, follow these simple steps:

  1. When editing a single choice question, enable the ‘Explanations for each answer’ option mode in the question editor.
  2. Click the ‘Add an explanation’ button and add your feedback.
  3. Make it more interesting with media assets such as pictures, videos, audio, etc. using the drag and drop content blocks.

Easy, right? Give it a try!

Right now, this feature is only available for the single-choice question item. But if you think it would be handy elsewhere, please send us your feedback.

The universal explanation for all answer options is still available and set by default.

All-in-one improvements

It’s already been a year since we launched the All-in-one template, but we’re not done with it yet. We’re constantly making improvements. And we do that with your help. With your feedback, we’re able to add the features you want, while making sure it looks good, but most importantly, making sure it’s easy!

So what have we improved in the last month?

  • Scaling. Devices come in a variety of screen sizes and resolutions, that’s why we understand the importance of proper content scaling and resizing. With the new improvements, your content will look great either on desktop or mobile.
  • Font hierarchies. We improved the hierarchy of fonts based on best practices. This creates a contrast between different typographic elements. It highlights the semantic differences, enhancing the readability of the content. Meaning you can put emphasis on what’s important.
  • Spacing. Once the size of fonts is defined and set, it’s important to separate the elements, but make them visually organized.
  • White space. We reduced the space between images, images and text and more importantly, between blocks. Giving the content a more consistent look and feel.
  • Editing alignment. The first step towards the alignment of editor and all-in-one template look and feel has been made. The fonts and margins are very close to those you’ll see in the final output. Making what you see really what you get.

Product performance

Last but not least, we’ve optimized and improved the page load time of the course list. That means that big organizations with thousands of courses don’t need to wait for an age to get started.

What to expect in the coming months

We’ll let you in on a secret… we’re working on some huge features over the coming months. We won’t give it all away just yet, but what we can say is it’s connected with learners’ results and the learners’ experience.
