I’ve now released SharePoint Learning Kit 1.7 beta release. There’s lots of changes, but the biggest, and most anticipated one is support for SharePoint 2013. This release support SharePoint 2007, 2010 and 2013, for both the free and server versions.
Assuming no show stopper bugs, I’ll be converting to a stable release early in December.
The main changes are:
Support for SharePoint 2013
Many bug fixes
Web Part to play resources directly
Quick Assign – Allow upload resource as part of creating assignment
Allow use of multi-lingual interface
Localization of queries
Welsh translation and new localization build process
Instructors have read access to non-elearning assignment documents before submission
Pluggable architecture for Domain Group Enumerator (for programmers extending SLK)
SLK Members web part
Support for claims based authentication for observer and drop box
Office Web Apps support
Self assign web part
Tool tip on learner on assignment properties page
Site column in ALWP is clickable link
Setting option to automatically version document libraries
Add delegate controls to application pages
SLK stsadm commands instead of slkadm
Configure at web application level as well as site collection
I’ll try to blog some more information on each of these as time allows.
In addition it’s got the functionality of 1.6 in, which never made it out of beta.
Better handling of not quite fully compliant SCORM content
Textual grading as well as numeric (optional) e.g. ABC type grades
Quick assignment type. That is assignments not based on a document. This should make it much easier to use for a homework diary, especially if the assignment is along the lines of "Read chapters 1 & 2 of book y."
