Creating Rich Personalised Certificates with Shika

creatingrichpersonalisedcertificateswithshikaa

Isn’t it a great feeling when you are rewarded and recognised when you complete a milestone or a goal? Online courses are no different. In fact, for online courses, recognition is even more important as they lack the physical touch points and personal motivation that is usually part of ‘In Person’ learning.  Low completion rates are the biggest bane of online learning. Rewards and recognition is a great way to fight this.

Personalised certificates are just one of the many features that Shika offers to let you reward your users.

A certificate is much more than a piece of paper. It is a recognition of one’s work and gives a sense of entitlement.They are a great way to showcase your achievements & add to one’s academic and work profile.

Roadmap for the Mobile App v2.0

Roadmap for the Mobile App v2.0

Hiya Everyone!

First, thank you very much for all the suggestions and improvements you suggested to all of the apps. As promised, putting down here the features and plan for the v2.0 of the combined app (P.S. It's v2.0 directly to avoid any version naming confusion). The combined app will sport Easysocial, Easyblog & JGive to start with. Here's a list of features for each section that will be available in v2.0. Most of these features were already available in the respective singular apps, but since the combined app is a significant rewrite, listing down all the features.

We're still working out a date for this release, and late October / early November seems to be working out. I'm still discussing with the Stackideas team in regards to the Easysocial APIs, will update with a date soon!

Appify your EasySocial website with our smartphone EasySocial App

Appify your EasySocial website with our smartphone EasySocial App

Easysocial by Stackideas is one of the top social networking extensions for Joomla. If you are new to EasySocial, you can find out more about it here. With the app for iOS and android we bring you an awesome slice of EasySocial's capabilities to your smartphone.

The free branded version of the app is available via the Google Play Store and in the queue for approval on the IOS App Store. You can buy a custom branding service on our site.

We believe in creating apps that work and are effective and one of the important factors in achieving that is deciding which is deciding which features to offer on mobile and which to restrict to the web.

Adding too many functionalities to mobile apps makes them complex and hard to use. We have followed the same policy with the EasySocial app. The features you are more likely to use on mobile have been prioritized in this development to give you a clean and useful experience. Read on for the full details.

JGive 1.6 is out. Re-imagining Joomla crowdfunding!

JGive-1.6-is-out

JGive-Crowdfunding and donations for Joomla

Fundraising & Crowd Funding for the future with JGive 1.6

It gives me great pleasure to announce the availability of JGive v.1.6. JGive is one of our most popular extensions & this release seriously packs a PUNCH! We know this release has taken a little bit more time than initially planned, but we do hope you will find it worth the wait!

A quick glimpse of Features:

Selection 010Awesome new Pin Layout for Campaigns & a Multipurpose Campaign Display Module

Now you see all the campaigns in a fresh new layout inspired by Kickstarter. It comes with a great side bar with lots of filtering options to help your users find the campaigns they want. 

The multipurpose module will let you choose & show Featured Campaigns, Recent Campaigns, Campaigns expiring soon & Completed Campaigns on any page you want in a slick display. The best use of the module is to make copies of it & set them on different modes to make the Home page of your Funding section. 

  

jgive campNew Campaign details view

We have given the campaign details page a full revamp & it now comes with some really attractive design elements & the good looking JUI icons. 

Edit campaigns option for Admins

Site admins can now edit all campaigns from the Joomla back-end.

Screenshot from 2013-11-01 095705

Donation Checkout Improvements

This version adds the much awaited One Page checkout & VAT invoices which have been long asked for by our European clients.

Any kind of e-commerce transaction should be dead easy - then be it checking out from a Shop or making a donation or an investment. The One Page Checkout feature will let your donors do donations much more quickly without having to go through multiple pages of checkout.

Selection 012Photo gallery 

Impress your donors/investors by maintaining an awesome campaign image gallery! Lets you add multiple images to the campaign & show them in a nice gallery layout with lightbox effects.

Paypal adaptive payments to make Fees much easier! 

Paypal Adaptive payments lets you do Split Parallel payments instantly. Which means if the Donor is making a Donation/ Investment of 200$ & the fees owed to the site owner are 20$, then we can make instant payments of 180$ to the campaign owner & 20$ to the Admin for his fee. Note that this feature will only be available for the Paypal payment gateway.

Recurring Donations with Paypal

Another feature that was much awaited is the ability to do recurring donations. We will be implementing this with Paypal to start with & in later versions, depending on demand extend it to other supported payment gateways.

Community Builder Integration

The Community Builder Integration lets you show the user's Campaigns on their own profiles. 

Donors & Donations Display Module

Using this module, you can show various types of JGive data on any page you want! The module has multiple modes as below

  • My Donations - Donations of logged in users
  • Recent donations on site
  • Top donations (maximum amount) against the campaign by the single donor
  • Overall top donors

EasySocial Integration

CB Integration was always planned but EasySocial integration is the surprise extra feature in this release! The Easy Social Integration integrates pushes for all JGive activities into the EasySocial Stream. Plus campaigns owned by the user are shown on the User's Profile using the My Campaigns Application. 

Group Donations Support for JomSocial

One of the most requested features is finally here. Now you can tie in your campaign with your JomSocial groups & also show it to the Group. Now you can start doing Group specific campaigns or investments!

There's much more to this release so read on to see what else we have, plus there is a DIWALI BLAST offer inside. So Definitely Read On!
