New in aNewSpring - Oktober 2013

Let your learners work together in groups

We often get the question if it's possible to let learners work together on a learning activity in aNewSpring. This can be very useful when you are dealing with study groups within a larger group of learners. Great news: our upcoming platform update makes this possible! 

On Thursday the 31st of October we will launch a new version of the aNewSpring platform, from then you will be able to open an activity for a specific group of learners. Give a condition to the activity and add the learners that are in the group together. This way they can collaborate on (for example) assignments, lessons or discussions.

Every student his own learning path

Since it's now possible to grant students access to activities, every student can get a personal learning path. An administrator can choose to grant a student access to activity A and C, but not to B. But of course activity B can still be made available for other students. aNewSpring now makes it easy to create a learning path per student within the same course.

Other aNewSpring optimizations

At aNewSpring we are constantly optimalizing our platform. This time we improved the following things:

  • When it is not possible to publish or test a template, the button Publish or Test now shows you the reason for that.

  • After creating a content library you will directly be brought to the page where you can manage the content. This is done to create a better content development flow for you.

  • After you published a template when having the administrator role you will be brought to the courses page directly. From here you create a course, then edit settings and subscribe students to this new course.

  • We switched the Courses and Content tabs. This in preparation for a future development, which will make it possible to create content directly from within a course template.
