I’ve just released SLK 1.6 to Beta on the CodePlex site. This has actually been ready to go for a while, several months in fact, but I haven’t managed to find the time for documentation of the new functionality. I’ve now taken the decision to release it without the documentation so that people can at least start using it and feeding back any problems.
The main changes are:
- Better handling of not quite fully compliant SCORM content
- Textual grading as well as numeric (optional) e.g. ABC type grades
- Quick assignment type. That is assignments not based on a document. This should make it much easier to use for a homework diary, especially if the assignment is along the lines of "Read chapters 1 & 2 of book y."
- Email alerts. The most requested extra functionality.
