Updates and How-to tutorials from the minds behind Babel-University
I'm happy to announce the minimum viable solution release (MVSR) of the Babel-U-Courses online course management system! Recovering from the design issue took longer than I had hoped, but after a solid week of coding till two in the morning, I was able to submit the extension to the Joomla! extensions directory yesterday.
Over the next few months, I'll be reorganizing the site documentation and updating the product demos to make room for the newest member of the Babel-University solutions family....
As you know I've been working on a new self-paced e-learning course extension that will make it possible to create structured learning paths in your Joomla! site. I was hoping to have a beta release this week, but unfortunately a no-so-obvious, yet extremely serious flaw in my original design has taken the project a little off course (no pun intended). So last week was spent brainstorming and testing various alternative designs.
In order to keep this project moving forward, I've decided to invest the remainder of February getting the beta release ready. This means that the next Babel-U-Exams development sprint will start early March. I know many of you are patiently waiting for the course management system. I'm very sorry for the delay and promise to make it well worth the wait.
Last week we successfully released version 1.9.0 of the Babel-U-Exams online test management system. After which I turned my attention to the new light weight self-paced course management system. I'm really excited to see it come together.
Thus far I've been able to implement the content structuring system and most of the data structure for unit (module, sprint) quizzes. This week I'm focusing on implementing the prerequisite system , which will make it possible to create controlled learning paths for your students....
