    Streamlined Activity Creation

    We are excited to release our new sibling Activity tool, which allows you to create Activities faster and with less navigation.

    After creating or editing an Activity, you can now click the sibling Activity icon to create a new Activity within the same Mastery Profile, Module, Topic, and Concept—a sibling.

        Update: 14-November-2018

        Admin Changes

        Active by Default

        To streamline the content creation process, when you create a Mastery Profile, Module, Topic, Concept, or Activity, it will have an Active status by default. As part of this update, if there there is more than one language available, the Translate button will now be visible before you save. 


        Although your Activities will have an Active status by default, they will not be visible to learners until they are published

        System-Generated Identifiers

        The system will now automatically generate a unique identifier based on the Mastery ProfileModuleTopic,  Concept, or Activity you create. Identifiers are unique at each level and can be edited at any time. 

        For example, in the GIF above, you can see that the C-AL99 identifier was automatically generated when we created the Concept. The Concept level is indicated by the "C-" prefix.

        We also removed the identifier Edit icon and added an Identifier field to each level to be more consistent with the rest of the system.

          Answer Locking and Positioning

          You can now change the positions of your answer options without enabling the lock icon. Locked answer options will always appear in the same position, while unlocked options will be automatically shuffled. This can be seen in the Activity preview panel


          We have also added a shuffle icon at the top of the Activity preview panel, to shuffle the order of unlocked answer options in the preview.

          Other Updates 

          We have released the following updates to our admin app: 

          • Improved the system's overall performance 
          • Added the default language to the Name field title to make it clear what language you are working in. The default account language will appear in brackets at the Mastery Profile level, and the default Module language will appear in brackets at all other levels.
          • Streamlined the context panel navigation so that drilling in to an Activity will automatically take you to the Answers tab 
          • Fixed a bug where the users view would sometimes throw errors that prevented it from loading 

              Learner Changes 

              We have made the following updates to our learner app: 

              • Improved the alignment of the Activity number and time, which became misaligned when choosing a larger or smaller font size in accessibility options
              • Fixed a bug that prevented saved users in an organization in the OttoLearn app from seeing the Feedback icon, until they logged out and then back in to the organization in the app

              • Improved the error message that appears when trying to publish a page with no updates 
              • Updated the login/logout functionality to automatically refresh the metadata, so you can see updates without having to also refresh the browser page.

              • Added the word "level" before the numerical values in the Mastery Goal column in the grid view

                  • Fixed a bug where some scrollbars didn't display correctly when shrinking the display window

                  We have added a new image alignment option—stretch—to our WYSIWYG editor to allow for full width images on answer cards. 

                  By default, images will stretch to the full width of the card, but clicking one of the other align options will allow you to include images with smaller widths. 

                  In addition, we have released the following bug fixes: 

                  • Fixed an issue where the loop button didn't work when embedding a YouTube video

                  • Home page 
                  • Any drilled in page
