What's new in version 2.7

Commercial CourseLab v2.7 includes all the features of CourseLab v2.4 that has been available for free at www.courselab.com since 2008. On top of that, CourseLab v2.7 offers a significant number of new features that make it a more powerful, flexible, and easy to use tool as compared to the free CourseLab v2.4:

  • CourseLab v2.7 creates e-learning courses that are compatible with the latest versions of all popular web browsers - Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Firefox, Opera, Safari, including Safari on iPad/iOS (the free v2.4 creates output that is best viewed in Internet Explorer; creating cross-browser courses with v2.4 is possible but there are some limitations and special rules to follow).
  • Many new VML/SVG vector objects allow data visualization (charts) and rapid development (e.g., tab blocks, image galleries).
  • New question types: true-false, one-to-many, many-to-many. Detailed results on questions become available through the new Detailed results object.
  • New animated characters and talking heads - different ages, different psychotypes.
  • Global variables can be restored also from LMS. Physical size of suspend_data is decreased (therefore, SCORM 1.2 limitation on the number of questions per module is alleviated).
  • About 10 new navigation objects, including Search objects, Alternative Module Path and Timer.
  • General object events (such as mouseover and click, correct-incorrect answer for questions) can use sound effects.
  • The object library is now open. Objects become editable by user. User can customize objects, create customized copies of objects or add new objects (XML/XSL/JavaScript skills required for that).
  • Slides can be exported as images.
  • The template library contains about 80 templates. The templates that were previously sold within Templates Pack 1 are now included into the distribution of CourseLab v2.7.
  • The PowerPoint Import and Screen Capture Extra Packs that were previously sold as CourseLab add-ons are now included into the distribution of CourseLab v2.7.
  • CourseLab v2.7 is available in several languages - English, French, Spanish, German, Russian, Chinese and Turkmen. Free CourseLab v2.4 is available in English only.
