OpenOLAT 9.4 released 15 May 2014 21:08

Dear OpenOLAT community The OpenOLAT 9.4 release is an iterative evolution of the 9 release and contains all 9.0.x to 9.4.x bugfix packages, you can download it from here: OpenOLAT 9.4 brings two main new features: the course element "checklist" and a new graphical statistical analysis tool for assessments and questionnaires. Using the checklist element course authors can better support a great range of didactical scenarios like participant lists in seminars, declaration of prepared tasks for tutorial classes, todo lists for self learning activities and more. Checklists can optionally create a score and thus be part of the assessment process and with the PDF download teachers can quickly print out a version they can take into class. Using a wizard multiple checklists can be easily created based on a template. Thanks to our partner University of Innsbruck for sponsoring this new feature. The graphical statistics tool analyses the assessment and questionnaire data in a course and calculates statistical key values which helps better interpreting the raw data. Graphical bar diagrams further improve the readability and interpretation of the data. Using the print view, an entire report can be generated for a test or questionnaire. Thanks to our partner VCRP for sponsoring this new feature! OpenOLAT 9.4 includes many other improvement and fixes for bugs that have come to our attention, specially in the area of better WebDAV compatibility and speed and enhancements and improved robustness of the notification infrastructure. Thanks to all the contributors and bug reporters for your help!
