Lectora Online 3.1 Release Notes

Lectora Online 3.1

Released on:  

May 28, 2016

Supported Browsers:   

Internet Explorer 10+ for authoring, Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Edge.

Lectora Online 3.1 includes the following updates and fixes:

New Features:

Lectora Online 3.1 includes new additions, like:

  • Customizable test results pages designed to work with responsive titles
  • HTML5-based media players to improve mobile delivery by eliminating Flash
  • New shape styles such as stars and callouts
  • Enter text directly into shapes
  • Object Rotation: Flip objects horizontally, vertically, or rotate them to any angle
  • Dynamic Text: identify text as “dynamic” and update it after publishing
  • Tag and Search: add title labels to identify and easily locate content

 

You can view a complete list of new features here.

 

With the architecture changes necessary to support many of the new features and functionality, a newer browser platform is required. Therefore, beginning with this release we will no longer support content development using Internet Explorer 9 and lower. (Published content may still be viewed in IE9 or lower.)

 

Feature Notes:

  • Test Results will be an in-line page within the title, not a pop-up. Please check your inheritance and navigation to/from the results page (especially inherited "Back" buttons).
  • Titles with Customized Test Results enabled will have those results pages converted to the new Results object. Property checkbox settings will be retained. Custom styling of text (fonts, colors, sizes) will not be retained. Use the Results Designer to apply text styling.
  • Existing Flash-based custom skins will no longer work with new HTML5 player. You will need to recreate them as HTML5 skins. (See Information Center.)
  • Closed captions will work, however any special text styling within the XML file will not function. This will be resolved shortly with support of newer caption formats.
  • When video is viewed full-screen on iOS devices the device’s default skin is used. Lectora does not have control.
