We are delighted to bring you another feature packed release of Shika, v1.3.39. The highlight of this release is course prerequisites which will allow you to create links between courses to effectively deliver complete learning programs. In addition to this, a new objective question type has been introduced in the assessment engine that allows free text inputs. Finally TJ Certificates has introduced a brand new workflow that allows students to submit records of external training they have done and certificates they have earned outside the platform to the system with an approval workflow. This allows you to maintain a central training record in the platform.
Besides these last features, this release also has plenty of new improvements and bug fixes. Read on for the full change log.
We invite you to be part of the community for the best LMS in the Joomla ecosystem today!
Site administrators can either enable or disable the pin view settings for menu level and module level for courses. If the course pin view settings is enabled, site administrators can easily choose to either enable or disable the likes, category, enrollments and tags for the courses.
With Shika 1.3.39, we have introduced a new integration plugin using which site administrator can set one or more courses as course prerequisites. Students will have to complete the course prerequisites before they can enrol for the course or purchase the course. This is similar to the learning paths that can be set for different lessons in the course.
Create Free Text input type Objective Questions in Shika LMS where the question has multiple answers and the user can input either one of these answers while answering the quiz.
Students can add external training records in Shika LMS along with certificates and the admin can then approve them. This is a great feature for students to highlight their skills via the various certifications undertaken by them.
In scenarios where a user retakes a course, the certificate did not regenerate earlier. This feature has now been added in cases where the certificate has not expired OR in cases where certificates do not have an expiry.
