Update: Media Support and Context Panel Redesign (10-October-2018)


Media Support

We are excited to announce the release of our new inline WYSIWYG editor that allows you to include media in your Activities.   


Specifically, you can include the following media in your Activity questions, answers, and feedback: 

  • Audio 
  • Images/GIFs 
  • Tables
  • Videos (uploaded or embedded) 

With the new editor, you can also create lists, include links, and style your text using different alignment and styling options.

All of your content, including content with media, can be translated using our built-in multilingual functionality

Context Panel Redesign

We have redesigned all of the context panels to streamline content creation and improve usability. 

On the Activity context panel, we have combined the Question and Answer tabs and added icons to indicate the correct answer, lock the answer position, toggle visibility, and override feedback. 

Multilingual Activities 

We have added the ability to translate Activity questions, answers, and feedback manually or using our automatic translation tool


Permissions 

You can now assign permission policies to users in your account, granting them different abilities in the Users View. This allows you to give non-Admin users the ability to view, create, and/or edit users. 

Contact support@ottolearn.com if you are interested in using permissions in your account. 

    Bug Fixes 

    We have also released the following bug fixes: 

    • Fixed an issue related to the reset password feature, where the captcha would sometimes cause errors  
    • Fixed a bug where some prerequisites would not save correctly in the Concepts tab of the Topic context panel

    Update: OttoLearn Learner App Updates (01-October-2018)

    We have updated the iOS and Android apps to better support multilingual training. 

    Specifically, the app will now recognize your device language and attempt to translate the interface to match. 

    When logging in as a user, the interface will adjust to match that user's default language. For example, if your device is set to display in English and you log in as a user whose default language is set to French, the interface will display in French. 

    Our apps now support the following languages: 

    • Chinese 
    • English
    • French
    • German
    • Italian
    • Portuguese
    • Romanian
    • Slovakian
    • Spanish 

    You can download the app from the App Store (iOS) or Google Play Store (Android).

    Update: 06-September-2018 Release

    Password Reset 

    Users can now reset their passwords from the login page on the learner side. 

    Streamlined Editing Process 

    We've made it easier to edit child items in the context panel.  Simply click the arrow beside a child item to make edits without having to drill in. 


    Depending on the child item, you may be able to edit the name, add prerequisites, set the Mastery Goal (Modules), or edit the question (Activities).

    Update: 09-August-2018 Release

    Streamlined Content Creation

    You can now create Modules, Topics, Concepts, and Activities from within their parent items. 

    Each component you create will be a shell with the default settings. After structuring your content, you can go in and make any desired edits. 

    This allows you to create your content quicker, easier, and with less navigation through the different Context panels

    Improved Identifier Management

    When creating a new component (Mastery Profile, Module, etc.), if you leave the Identifier field blank it will now be automatically filled in with the Name field text. 

    Click the Edit icon to customize the identifier. 

    Push Notifications

    OttoLearn can now send push notifications to learners using the iOS app when it is time for them to complete a Mastery Moment. Notifications are sent based on the account's notification settings, the learner's engagement schedule, and when the system determines is best for the learner to complete a Mastery Moment. 

    We will be adding push notification support to our Android app and several Internet browsers soon.

    Other Enhancements

    We also released the following enhancements: 

    • Edited the Attributes and Settings icons to be more intuitive 
    • Improved the breadcrumbs that appear at the top of each Context panel in the Content Studio 
    • Fixed several miscellaneous bugs
