CourseMill 7.5 is here!

The newest version of the CourseMill Learning Management System by Trivantis has been released.

One of the highlights of CourseMill 7.5 is the new intuitive learner interface. Designed to help students manage their courses, the new interface has a customisable dashboard enabling students to display, resize and move panels to suit them.

The 7.5 upgrade also comes with a new mobile application. The mobile app also features a new user interface and new functionality. Not only can you download and take your content offline, but the mobile app also incorporates support for non-SCORM content, such as PDFs, audio and video files.

To further facilitate customisation, the structure of CourseMill 7.5 has been rewritten as an API. This essentially allows you to write custom interfaces and reporting procedures, as well as integrate with other systems.
