Embed Screen for Lessons

New to the platform is the Embed screen for lessons. The Embed screen allows users to embed content from third-party platforms and websites. Use the Embed screen inside lessons to:

  • Embed a survey to get feedback from learners about your course
  • Embed google maps to show your company location to customers
  • Embed forms for team members to make formal requests
  • Embed a calendar booking widget to book demo with leads
  • Embed a podcast from Spotify to support an idea in your course
  • Embed a Social media post from Facebook

We know that many of you have used the text with image screen to embed content in the past and encourage you to transfer that content over. 

Check out the Embed screen demo to see how you can use it inside your lessons. 


Document Screen for Lessons

A new addition to our lesson screen types is the document screen. We’ve always had a document module, and due to popular demand we’ve made it available as a lesson screen. 

Now you can embed and display PDFs, Word documents, and Spreadsheets into lessons screens to be displayed inline, or as a download link


🕵️ Click to View Images at Full Size

We've added zoom functionality to the Slideshow and Text and Image screen types so that learners can now see your images at full size. 

Simply click to reveal, and dismiss to go back.

We'll be adding this functionality to more screen types where needed, so contact us and let us know where you'd like this feature added next. 

🎉 Single page course builder is here!

The single page course builder is here — jump into a course to see what's new!

Course builder navigation

The new builder sidebar is designed to replicate the learner experience — using the sidebar, you can add and edit modules, build lessons and quizzes, and navigate through the course the same way your learners do. Everything is visible in a single page - less back and forth, more time creating!

Quizzes

Every quiz and checkpoint question has been redesigned for learners, and builders. Trainers can now see exactly how quizzes will look while building them, with inline editors replicating what learners will see.



Publish / Revert changes 

Publish or revert multiple module changes at the same time using the new publish modal. No need to navigate to individual modules. 


Document, Video, External link, and SCORM modules

The Document, Video, External link, and SCORM modules have all been converted to inline editors. 

Enrollments

The enrollments tab can now be accessed by clicking the 'Enrollments' button on the top-right-hand-side of the screen. 

Finish screen and Certificates

The finish screen and certificates have been combined so they bookend the new builder nicely at the bottom of the screen. 

🎉 Inline Editing Is Here!


We have just released inline editing for 4 lesson screen types:

  • Text with Image
  • Video
  • Slideshow 
  • Checkpoint (partial) 

Now you can see how the screen will look without having to preview it! Make sure you check out the new editors and let us know what you think. 

We'll be transitioning all of our editors to inline over the coming months, so keep a lookout for more announcements as we roll out each update. 

Updated WYSIWYG editor

Our WYSIWYG editor has just been updated with an improved UI that displays only the most frequently used options in the WYSIWYG toolbar. 

To access additional options, we've created three new menus that group options into the following categories:

  • More paragraph options 
  • More text options
  • More rich media options

Simply click the menu icons to reveal a row of additional options for that category.



Redesigned Video and Slideshow Screens

We've updated the Video and Slideshow Lesson screens in line with our recently released course style updates, providing your learners with a fresh, consistent experience. 

Key changes include rounded corners, smoother transitions, and the introduction of a carousel to the slideshow template. 

Go and check them out and let us know what you think! 


Major Course Improvements for Learners

As promised we've just launched major updates to the way your learners experience courses in Coassemble.  

Course navigation

By moving the floating course navigation from the bottom of the screen to the top of the screen we've been able to save valuable screen realestate making it more likely that your learners won't need to scroll to reveal course content. 

To accomodate the improved navigation, your company branding, the learner profile, notifications, and announcements have been moved to the sidebar. If your workspace already has a custom favicon it will also appear in the sidebar. 

The sidebar menu is now opened and closed from within the screen content container. This alleviates the problem where the menu button would obscure the contents of the menu. 

Stylistic improvements

We've implemented a new design approach that threads through every module within a course. This provides a consistent experience, starting from the course overview, to every lesson template, and module. 

You'll notice this new design as the friendly rounded corners on the buttons and cards, and a new capsule that contains all of the course content. 

Lesson background colors

One of the most notable improvements is how your lesson screen background colours will be displayed. Lesson background colours will now appear behind the content. We wanted to retain the flexibility of making your lessons pop with blocks of colour but in a way that would allow you to retain the integrity of the information displayed to learners. Doing this opens up the possibility of introducing a dark mode for learners in the future, which we feel is important for accessibility. 

Checkpoint Navigation and Answer Submission

We've made some exciting changes to the way your learners interact with Checkpoint templates in the Lesson module. 

Navigation

Checkpoints now appear as individual questions in the sidebar menu, making it easier for learners to know where they're up to. 

Answer submission

Checkpoints now require learners to submit their answers before confirming whether they've got the answer correct. This leads to a less abrupt experience where learners were faced with a feedback pop-up immediately after they've attempted to answer a question.
