After effective sprint in Tallinn, LeMill has been updated to 2.0, release candidate 1, which means that we’re having great new features, but we’re not yet hundred percent sure that they work smoothly. You should notice following new features:
- New content template: Exercise. It’s like the old Multimedia Material, but you can add questions that appear as blank boxes for students. You can direct your students to LeMill to do the exercise, and they can send the results to you as e-mail with simple buttons. We can do open-ended questions, fill-in-the-blanks-exercises and multiple choices questions, and the latter two can be automatically corrected.
- Tex-formatting for math teachers and others who know what it is about. You can insert formulas to text by writing ‘backslash(’ – tex formula – ‘backslash)’. Backslash is this character: ‘\’.
- Faster, faster
- Preparations for better visibility in Calibrate Portal. I don’t remember what actually.
