Release notes 101

The release is expected on August 8th.

Learners - Mathematical formulas

  • Added: Learners can add mathematical formulas as answers in the essay questions.

Learners - Keyboard accessibility (WCAG)

  • Improved: Learners are able to interact and navigate through the learning journey (overview with all activities), with the exception of the widgets, by only using their keyboard.

    • This includes the ability to see which actionable item is on focus at the moment;

    • And the ability to instantly skip to the main content, the activities.

Learners - App push-notification for bundle courses

  • Added: Learners can receive a push-notification on their mobile device when a course is added to their bundle course.


  • Added: The new survey concept allows you to set up well-defined surveys that can be repeated in multiple templates and used to gauge feedback from the learners. The feedback can tell you how well your training is performing and where you should make improvements.

    • Admin permissions: There are two new permissions added within the administrator role. The main one allows users to see results from surveys and the secondary permission lets the users also create and manage the surveys. 

    • Survey content: You have the option to create surveys with a new content library or rely on an existing one with questions and content parts you already have. You also have the option to create a survey with immediately predefined questions.

    • Template activity: A new survey activity type for the templates is added. Learning designers can select the pre-defined survey (created by the survey expert) and add it to an activity at the template level.

      • In order to keep things clear and fit the purpose of the activity type better, we’ve renamed the ‘Inquiry’ activity type to ‘Questionnaire’.

    • Learners: Learners share their opinion and feedback in the regular way within their learning journey.

    • Results overview: All feedback from the learners, from all the templates, are combined and shown in one overview to easily process the results.

(Video) Hand-in assignment - All instructors

  • Added: The possibility for learners to hand in their assignments to all instructors, rather than having to pick one.

    • A setting in the video- or normal hand-in assignment activity.

    • Also editable when the activity is published. But only from ‘Having to select an instructor’ to ‘Handing it in to all instructors’ and not the other way around.

    • External assessors are not available with this setting.

Access code - Direct access to the input page

  • Improved: The login page where learners can enter an access code is improved with a direct url. Thereby, users can directly navigate to the access code input page.
