Shika 1.1 released with 20+ features !

Shika 1.1 released with 20+ features !

It's here! Shika 1.1 is out with 20+ spectacular new features that will take learning with Joomla to a whole new level. With Shika its always been our goal to give you a scalable learning management system that's not only simple to use but can also scale and adapt to various learning needs. In this release we take another step closer to that goal.  

When version 1.0 was released, we had decided that for the next few releases we will do less new features per release and release faster. However we ended up having to increase the features planned for the release as we had a lot of merge requests pending from our customization teams. Delaying these merges would have meant complicating things for future releases. So it was decided that 1.1 will end up being a much bigger release than originally planned. 

Shuffling for Questions and answers, Event as lesson, Automatic random quiz generation, Link as lesson, Assignments and Goals are just some of the features that come to you in this release !  The net total if you include all the minor features goes upto 24 or so new features and a lot of bug fixes and improvements.

Please note that this release is a 'Major Release' and thus needs a migration. The Migration is pretty painless but you need to run it in both Shika as well as jLike post installation. Once you install the release, make sure you click the 'Fix' buttons in the left corner on the Shika and jLike component pages. Also make sure you read the release notes carefully before you upgrade !!

JGive nEXT - revamped UX, Activity stream and more!

JGive nEXT - revamped UX, Activity stream and more!

UX redesign is going to be a major focus for upcoming major releases of Techjoomla products. JGive will be one of the first to get these improvements. As part of this exercise we are taking a fresh look at how customers use the product and are letting this drive the design and new features.

We hope this new approach will take our products to a new level. Here’s a quick look at the new designs and related features. It would be great if you guys can give us your comments on the same.

The roll out of this new UI/UX and related features will happen in the next few version of the jGive 2x series. Note that not all improvements will come in a single release and will be spread out over multiple ones.

Read on to get the full scoop !
