SLK 1.7 Finally Released

I've finally got round to releasing SharePoint Learning Kit 1.7. There's lots of changes, but the biggest, and most anticipated one is support for SharePoint 2013. This release support SharePoint 2007, 2010 and 2013, for both the free and server versions. You can download from CodePlex. Install documentation includes instructions for all 3 versions above, but in general documentation is lacking. The main changes are: Support for SharePoint 2013 Many bug fixes Web Part to play resources directly Quick Assign - Allow upload resource as part of creating assignment Allow use of multi-lingual interface Localization of queries Welsh translation and new localization build process Instructors have read access to non-elearning assignment documents before submission Pluggable architecture for Domain Group Enumerator (for programmers extending SLK) SLK Members web part Support for claims based authentication for observer and drop box Office Web Apps support Self assign web part Tool tip on learner on assignment properties page Site column in ALWP is clickable link Setting option to automatically version document libraries Add delegate controls to application pages SLK stsadm commands instead of slkadm Configure at web application level as well as site collection Ribbon Controls iPad support for Assignment List Web Part Option to automatically select all instructors and/or learners when creating and assignment I'll try to blog some more information on each of these as time allows. In addition it's got the functionality of 1.6 in, which never made it out of beta. Better handling of not quite fully compliant SCORM content Textual grading as well as numeric (optional) e.g. ABC type grades Quick assignment type. That is assignments not based on a document. This should make it much easier to use for a homework diary, especially if the assignment is along the lines of "Read chapters 1 & 2 of book y." Email alerts
