Version 188.8.131.5236 contains the following updates:
- Add support for Hotwords
Hotwords can be added through the Insert Hyperlink dialogue for text in any standard text component. The specified definition for the word(s) will appear when the learner clicks the word(s) in the published output. Clicking on hotwords is not required for page completion
- Add a new Media Browser
A new Media Browser is now available through the Tools | Media Browser menu option. This contains a new details view, that allows you to view extended asset information, such as video duration. The media Browser also allows the author to set global properties on an assets, which are immediately updated on the Luminosity Studio Server.
- Add support to archive media
Assets can now be archived, so that they do not appear in the Media Browser dialogue. This hides asserts, so that out of date assets are not used in new projects. The assets are not deleted, so existing projects that use archived assets, still function as expected. The archive asset function can be accessed by right-clicking on an asset in the Media Browser. Archived assets will not appear in the media list unless ‘Show archived media’ is enabled, however they will be usable in components where they have already been added.
- Allow component specific media values to override values from assets
Previously, media transcripts, streaming URLs, and image descriptions were stored globally with the asset and updated on check-in of the containing project or page. It is now only possible to update these asset properties through the Media Browser, in which case the author is updating the default value for these properties on the asset. The default values are used in Studio, unless the value is over-ridden on a per component basis by the author.
- Add support for SCORM Objectives
These can be enabled through the Project Properties dialogue,Track course objectives option. When enabled, a course will log an objective for each top level page in the tree when all tracked pages under it are complete, along with any tracked assessments. It will have a score set to the average of all tracked assessments under it, or 100 if no such assessments exist. The author can specify the objective that is reported to the Learning Management System (LMS) by adding standard Studio objectives to the required pages. Only top-level pages with a defined objective will be used in communications with the LMS.
