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.

Frequently asked question section

In order to answer to the questions and doubts of teachers, teaching assistants and students about the iCorsi2 platform, eLab created a FAQ section where, for every question, people can find a short answer and a video tutorial showing the procedure step by step. In the FAQ section you can find answers to questions like “how can I set the course language?” or “is it possible to upload more than one file at once?


BSI – eLearning to support change management

During 2010, eLab has collaborated with BSI (Banca della Svizzera Italiana) for supporting the staff training on a new software for bank management. It has been decided that, together with face-to-face classes, digital technologies will assist the training of the employees for using the new software. One of the specific eLearning strategies that have been identified to support the training, is the production of video-tutorial to be used in a collaborative learning environment.
