Assessment Based scoring introduces a new scoring mode for SCORM and xAPI-based course that calculates course score as an average of scores achieved in scored assessment cards.
When authoring assessments you can now adjust the weight of each item by modifying the point value. This can be used to increase or decrease the relative value of a correct response within an assessment.
We are pleased to announce support for xAPI (TinCan) course and widget outputs. Now in Knowbly, you can export full courses or individual widgets as xAPI packages with standard interaction reporting. This is our initial release for xAPI and we have subsequent releases planned around: connecting LRS endpoints within Knowbly, extending xAPI statements, and supporting custom statement profiles.
We want to hear how you’re using or plan on using xAPI. To configure your LRS with your LMS please refer to: https://github.com/RusticiSoftware/launch/blob/master/lms_lrs.md
It's been a year since we launched Knowbly and the new application navigation is the culmination of feedback gathered from our users. We've streamlined navigation into a single menu, which is always available wherever you are in application.
A nice add on, we've integrated an HTML code editor in courses and widgets. This allows you to switch to 'Code View' in rich text fields. When editing HTML for a rich text element be careful!
You'll quickly notice that the static formatting toolbar has disappeared in the course and widget editors. Don't fret, we've made all toolbars inline. To access formatting options, simply place your cursor in a rich text field or select the element you want to edit.
In addition to all our new features and updates, we've cleaned up some of the interface to make things easier to use. As you log back into Knowbly you'll notice a variety of changes and improvements. Here are some of the most notable:
The 'Navigation' block provides a non-linear way for learners to navigate courses. Configure and place Navigation blocks in a Lesson linking to different sections of the course.
