SoftChalk 7 is here! Mobile, CONNECT, & iFrames Oh My!
SoftChalk 7 continues to build upon the success of previous versions of SoftChalk and responds to the needs of digital learners with a variety of new features. SoftChalk 7 increased its mobile functionality with the ability to automatically generate a mobile-friendly version of content created in SoftChalk and detects the device a learner is using so that the appropriate version of the content is displayed. There are also six new mobile-friendly html5 learning activity templates available in SoftChalk 7, to enhance mobile learning content with interactive. Be aware that other learning activities won’t work in the mobile version, but I’m sure more will be on their way in the near future.
SoftChalk 7 added these new feature enhancements…
- Embed any web page or pdf file into your lesson using the new iFrame tool – One of my favorite new features that will keep learners engaged in the lesson without having to leave to view content in a new window.
- New SoftChalk ScoreCenter for Moodle allows you to track student score data in the Moodle gradebook – Already available for Blackboard Learn users
- Download lessons and eCourses from CONNECT for editing in SoftChalk – will be a great way to share lessons
- Package eCourses in Common Cartridge format
