Spot the Mistake Screen Updates

The Spot the Mistake lesson screen template has been updated to reflect the changes recently made to its sister screen template — Hotspot.  Changes have been minimal, but bring improvements for creators with inline editing, and automatic tip sizing. 

Inline editing

The Spot the Mistake screen now includes inline editing so you can see exactly how the screen is going to appear without having to preview it. 

Automatic tip sizes

Spot the Mistake tips now automatically choose the correct orientation and width. This ensures that learners get the best experience, no matter their screen size. 

Hotspot Screen Improvements

We’ve made some minor adjustments to the hotspot template to improve the usability for course creators, and optimized the experience for learners. 

What’s changed? 

Inline editing

The hotspot screen now includes inline editing so you can see exactly how the screen is going to appear without having to preview it. You can even build your hotspots on mobile!

Smart tips

Hotspot tips now automatically choose the correct orientation and width. This ensures that learners get the best experience, no matter their screen size. 

New text editor

The hotspot screen includes our beautiful new text editor that we'll be rolling out to all of our screen templates as they're updated. 

🎉 Coassemble Reinvents the Wheel!

We've just dropped the hotly anticipated update to the wheel screen template for lessons! 

What’s changed? 

Wheel on mobile devices

The wheel is now visible on mobile devices. Gone is the old accordion menu that replaced the wheel on smaller screens.  

Inline editing

Inline editing allows you to see exactly what you’re designing. Create wheel screens on the fly right on your desktop or mobile device without having to preview. 


The wheel now automatically picks a different color for each individual slice based on your primary workspace color. This means your wheel will always look good! 

If you don't want your colors picked for you, then don't worry, you can choose to make your wheel slices whatever colour you like. 

Simple reorder

Reorder wheel slices from the advanced settings menu

New text editor

The wheel screen includes our beautiful new text editor. We will be rolling this out to the entire platform gradually as we include additional functionality.

Make sure to check out the wheel demo to see how it now works on all devices!

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. 

Image Editor Improvements

We've just launched some major improvements to the image editor to make adding images to your courses easier than ever 🎉

So what's new? 

Improved cropping functionality

We've spent a lot of time refining our cropping tool so that it crops just the way you intended it to. 

More clarity around forced ratios

There are many lesson templates that enforce specific crop ratios for images. We do this to ensure each image is displayed as intended (e.g. not stretched or squashed). It wasn't always clear why, but the improved UI will now let you know when a ratio is enforced, so you choose the image that best suits your design. 

Integrated alternative text input

We've integrated the ALT text function into the image editor so that you can add alternative text at the same time you add your image. 

Ratio select options

Crop like a pro using the quick ratio select options. No more guessing, no more hoping you've cropped it just right..

We've Rebranded Noticeboards As Announcements

We're relaunching the noticeboard feature as Announcements

Announcements allow you to post single-use messages to groups of learners in a course. Announcements appear as a small popup that appears in the top-right-hand corner of the screen allowing you to post a reminder or an update to the course as the learner works through it. 

The functionality is essentially the same with a just a few notable changes:

  1. All announcements will be dismissible, you don’t have the option of making them not dismissible, however, you can pin them to the announcement board if you choose to. 
  2. Instead of displaying a background colour to distinguish between the announcement types, you choose a display icon
  3. The announcements are no longer hidden by a menu, they appear in a fixed position at in the top-right-hand corner of the screen when a learner is in a course. 

New Course Settings Menu and Reports Modal

In an effort to simplify courses, we've moved course prerequisites, course notifications, compliance mapping, and the resource folder selector to a new settings menu. 

In addition, we've moved the reports tab to a new modal for a snapshot of how your learners are doing in the current course.
