EquaLearning New Feature Release Notes

July 2021 Updates

7/19/2021

  • Equalearning Web Portal

  • iOS APP V2.4.1 Release

  • Android APP V2.18.4 Release

Greetings Everyone,

We are excited to share that we have added another great feature that will surely aide our school-based clients and many of our corporate trainers as well. As of today we have released a preview of the Grade Book, offering both basic and detailed reports on student/trainee coursework for both accredited and non-accredited education institutions. 

This new feature allows teachers to generate grades for their students at the click of a button, saving teachers time and offering more support to their students. The reports are generated by teachers automatically, and are easily shared with students who can log in and view their grades at the touch of a button.

This new feature will be added to new accounts and previous accounts soon. 

That's all for now. Stay tuned for more releases coming your way soon!

7/2/2021

  • iOS APP V2.3.98 Release

  • Android APP V2.18.2 Release

Hello All,

An important update to our software was released today which expands Equalearning's offline capabilities. For iOS devices, we have added the feature to enable downloaded course books to be read from external storage devices. This means you can download course books to a USB or SD card, plug it into your phone or tablet, and read the materials with no internet connection. This will serve very well in areas with limited or no internet capabilities by providing a new way to share and download course book material to the iOS device. 

To access this feature on the APP home screen, before you log in, simply click on the bottom setting "Cloud: United States" and open to see the screen shown on the right. Now, simply plug in your usb or SD card and click on "SD Card" button on the left of "settings". And there you go! That's all there is to it.

But that's not all. This new feature works on Android just as well, but now we have added a feature that allows Android devices to export course book answers to external storage so that they can uploaded with another Android device. This enables course books to act as full exams with feedback completely offline in areas where internet is the main issue. 

We hope you are all able to take full advantage of these new features and as always, let us know if you have any questions.

June 2021 Updates

6/17/2021

 

  • Equalearning Web Portal

Greetings everyone! We are back with a major update to our lesson content building feature in the Equalearning Web Portal. This is a major update to how teachers will create lesson content and we are very excited to share the news with you. 

As a major update, this will add new features, but also significant changes, to how teachers will create lesson content in the web portal. The interface looks different, and we will update our Help Files to discuss these changes in more depth, but in brief, here is an overview of the updates we have made.

We have moved the right click options to the menu bar for slide editing, so it is more simple and clear to add questions, text, images, and other edits to each slide.

We have added

  • a more convenient and light text editing option to teachers.

  • the function to hide/display the Slide list area

  • the option to add new slide to different position in the slide list

We will have the new Help File videos up soon, but please take the time to play with the new lesson content features, and as always, let us know if you have any questions.

6/9/2021

  • Equalearning Web Portal

  • iOS APP V2.3.96 Release

  • Android APP V2.18.1 Release

Greetings everyone! We have a new update released today that will add some more customizability to the Coursebooks and Certified Courses that Admins create in the Library for students. 

The first addition is the ability to allow students to retake the certified course if they fail to pass it the first time around. This feature will likely be useful when you employ your certified courses as exams or other type of assessment. 

To add this new feature, from the School Admin role, please find the certified course in your library and click on it to show the settings. Under the same area where you can click to allow changing answers, you can now select the option to allow students to "re-test when fail".

When this option is selected, upon finishing the course, the student will receive a notification upon completion that they have either failed, in which they can select to test again, or a congratulatory notification telling them they have passed the course and can now view their results.

We hope you find this feature useful and get to using it right away. As always let us know if you have any questions or concerns, and wish you a happy Summer!

  • iOS APP V2.3.95 Release

  • Android APP V2.17.9 Release

 

Hello All,

 

We have changed the overall design of our mobile layout. The icons were previously a bit chunky and not as user-friendly as we would have liked, so we changed it all.

 

This update to the APP uses a new set of icon that will hopefully improve the user experience of your accounts.

We hope you enjoy! 

Cheers!

  • Equalearning Web Portal

  • iOS APP V2.3.93 Release

  • Android APP V2.17.8 Release

Greetings all and Happy Springtime! We have some exciting new features we have added to the platform just this past week. 

First, we have added the feature for  System Admins,  Channel Admins, and Organization Admins to check user passwords and help them to change or simply look up. This can save some valuable time when a password is forgotten but not wanted to change.

 

Next, we added a Sign Up feature to the web portal. This way, new users can sign up for an account with your school, business, or organization quickly and easily not just with the APP, but with their desktop as well.

4.23.1.png
4.23.2.png

Next, we have added what is sure to be one of the most popular features of our platform thus far - a shareable short link for your session. This enables your audience to quickly join your session with a quick scan of a QR code with their mobile phone's camera. You have the option to choose Private, so only users with accounts can view, or public, enabling absolutely anyone to view and interact in your session. 

4.23.3.png

Another great addition to Equalearning's platform is the feature to provide a "Prevent Skipping" setting to make sure user stays on the page for whatever is deemed a necessary amount of time.

 

This features is available for teachers in Lesson Content creation as a new slide feature, and below is an example of the warning message users will see if they have not spent enough time on that particular slide.

That's all for today, but we will have more to add be the end of this month. 

Stay tuned!

4.23.5.jpg
4.23.4.png

04/07/2021

Greetings All!

Today we have released a small new feature that enables System Admin, Channel Admin, and Organization Accounts to display class count, teacher count, and user/student count of all School Accounts. 

This way when you log in as a System, Channel Account, or Organization Account user, you can view your multiple schools or business and their activity at a quick glance, saving you time and energy in keeping tabs of all user accounts in your network.

That's all for this week, but stay tuned for more updates to come.

04/02/2021

Hello Everyone,

We have a couple of new feature releases today to share with you. These will no doubt simplify your experience and enhance your abilities to use our platform effectively. 

The first is an slight edit that mark all the past sessions that have been completed and hides them on your users' "Lecture" tab. This way users will only see upcoming or recurring lectures. 

Our second feature release includes the new ability to sync with Google Analytics to track your account users experience so you can easily track their activity and frequency, simplifying the ability to see how often users login and when/if they miss any lectures or sessions.

This latter feature is exclusive found within 

System Admin/ Channel Admin/ Organization Admin Edit Account pages.

Please contact us to implement this new feature if you are NOT a Channel Account. 

That's all for today, but you can expect at least one more update later this month.

March 2021 Updates

03/30/2021

  • Equalearning Web Portal

 

Hello Friends!

We have some exciting news here at the very tail end of the month of March. We have released the student progress and work report for our teacher accounts. This enables teachers to generate reports based on lessons, tests, quizzes, or other materials shared with students. The reports section can be found on the left side of the action menu - just click on "Reports" and you, as the teacher, can view report results for your students from all self-study, session, course, or course books they have been assigned. The reports show in a glance how much progress the students have made as well as their answers and scores. 

We're very excited to offer this to you all, and as always, stay tuned for more software updates coming your way soon!

  • Equalearning Mobile Web Portal Update

 

Hello Everyone,

 

Today we have released several updates to the Web Portal. The first is an addition of a full screen icon for user accounts when accessing the web portal. This way, users can expand the screen to allow for a clear and bigger full screen view.

We have also added a feature for teachers to start Zoom meetings immediately by pressing the ‘Join Now’ button instead of starting the zoom application. Previously you had to have Zoom open on your device to begin the live sessions, but that is no longer necessary. Everything can now be easily and conveniently controlled from your Equalearning account. Keep in mind, however, that this only works for meetings with same owner as the Zoom API Key setup in school account.

 

We have also added a feature for clients with customized sites to setup Personal Data Protection Agreement Acknowledgement. With this feature enabled, under this site, student information will have a new line telling whether he has agreed the PDPA. Students who have not agreed the PDPA yet will get a popup after logging in.

That's all for today. Stay tuned to find out more about exciting release updates!
