iCorsi2 platform has been upgraded

iCorsi2, the eLearning platform of USI and SUPSI, has been upgraded to the new Moodle 2.7 release. Here are the main new features:

  • responsive design (iCorsi2 can be displayed optimally from any kind of device, such as computers, laptops, tablets or smartphones);
  • cleaner graphics (merging of all available settings for a resource/activity in a single menu; new text-editor);
  • advanced conditional activities (each resource/activity can be made available only for a single user, a group of users, or starting from a given date);
  • annotation of PDF assignments (teachers can add comments and annotate PDF assignments directly from the platform).

By the end of the summer, some new videotutorials about these features will be added on the iCorsi2 FAQ section.
