Today we have deployed a wide set of changes to mAuthor. Here’s a full list:
[NEW] A brand new module has been introduced – “Auto Feedback”. It will add the possibility to create an automatic feedback presented to the user in a variety of forms – plain text, popup or a tooltip and it may work either immediately after the user’s input or after pressing the Check button. Find out more in ourdocumentation.
[FIX] We’ve fixed a bug in My Lessons that made it impossible to move a lesson to a different category.
[TTS] Our Text-To-Speech and keyboard navigation system now works with Assessment Navigation Bar, Table of Contents, Cross Lesson and Media Recorder modules and it was improved in Text module for links and draggable gaps. We are also working on adding support for Editable Window and Paragraph modules – they will be added soon.
[FIX] A bug in the width of columns of the Connection module with images has been fixed.
