Course Bundles Feature in E-learning Platform
We have rolled out "Course Bundles" feature for our E-learning Platform whereas instructor can add multiple courses to the bundle. Course bundles gives learners the chance to study two or more online courses at the same time. Instructor can create a bundle and add any number of courses as per their requirement. Students are automatically enrolled to the course bundle by sending a course invite. Full access can be given to students before or without payment as per an Instructor's choice. Also if students are found to be prospective, an email can be sent requesting them to take up the course bundle and the email analytics of the same can be found in the dashboard. Whenever a student enrolls in a course or a new payment occurs, an email notification will be sent to an Instructor about the same if notification is enabled.
Additional fonts support for uploaded documents in the content library
Great News! We've now added support for additional fonts to provide a wider coverage for uploaded documents with international fonts such as Chinese and other modern fonts. When you upload a document including all popular types of documents such as Adobe PDF files (.PDF), Microsoft Word documents (.DOC, .DOCX), Microsoft Excel worksheets (.XLS, .XLSX), Microsoft PowerPoint presentations (.PPT, .PPTX), plain and rich text files (.TXT, .RTF) and other supported formats, the document conversion engine will retain the original fonts in the document or closely match the available fonts from our comprehensive fonts library in the backend.
This includes all the documents uploaded in the content library as well as the documents uploaded during a live virtual classroom session.
New private course invitation template
Instructors can now edit the invitation email template for private courses when enrolling students. The template for private course invitation is added as a new notification template under "Student E-mail Notifications" under 'Notifications' option in manage courses. This template can be customized to include additional instructions as needed.
iCal calendar issues for recurring classes
We have now fixed the iCal calendar issue for the daily, weekly, monthly, and custom days when sending class invitation. The calendar feature in email clients such as Outlook, Gmail, Hotmail and Yahoo will now correctly parse the iCal and show the recurring classes as per the class schedule.

Review answers before submitting the test
We have now did a change to our adaptive/partial/standard testing where students will be able to review all their answers before submitting. In adaptive testing, our adaptive logic will show next question when test starts. When the student reach the final question adaptive logic will get complete and the student will have an option to review all answers and submit it.
Upload more than one image for certificates
We have enabled the option to upload more than one image on certificates. Instructors can select the certificate template from the list of designs and upload more than one image on certificates if necessary. Images can be resized as per the requirement. After uploading required images, an instructor can save the certificates and allow students to download after completing the course.
Fixed font issue in the downloaded certificate template
We have now fixed the issue with the font style of the certificate template which is awarded by an instructor or an institution once the student completes the course. After creating a course an instructor can select a certificate design and select the required font style and save the same. Now the student can download the certificate in the same font style which the instructor saved while creating the course without any change in the font style and design.
