Agylia has added a new feature called Tasks. With tasks, the Agylia LMS enables you to set challenges to your learners and doesn’t link that to courseware or other content that you have developed. You don’t have to prescribe how to complete the task or define “right” answers that can be measured. Learners can take the approach that seems best to them, and can then upload evidence that they have completed the challenge.
Tasks can deliver active learning, where learners can take control over their learning by doing, rather than passively receiving information. By providing tasks, rather than just information, you can improve motivation, putting the learning in the control of the learner.

A new diagnostic feature has been added that allows Admins to investigate user course status issues in an admin only sandbox environment.
The sandbox is a test environment that enables you to test courses in the context of the current user. This allows you to review their progress, or diagnose issues, for example, where a user claims they have completed a course, but the course shows as incomplete or in progress, perhaps because they have not visited all required pages, completed all required tasks, or if there is a course configuration error.

Learner Portal Links
You can now add links to content items on the LMS from reference documents on the LMS, or simply from emails or other similar communications. Within the Admin portal, the link that can be used to access a content item from the learner portal can be obtained on the content items properties page. If the user is not currently logged in to the learner Portal, they will be required to log in as normal.
