Editor 2.2

Updates to the story editor (Authoring)

New Assets. You now only need to provide a story icon (now called a primary icon). We have removed additional story assets to streamline the process. If you want to provide an alternative icon for banners you can choose to provide an "alternative icon".

New Asset Sizing. Primary & alternative icons will be cropped/resized to 1024 x 1024. Squared assets ensure a consistent/agile layout across all devices on the app.

Add Emojis. Emoji support has been added to authoring. You can add emojis to any text. 🦄

Immediate publishing. Time to publish is now immediate (no more waiting).

Current/Legacy Assets. Stories built on the older editor (2.1) will only use the story icon for banners on the app. This ensures stories display correctly on the app, without sizing issues. Landscape and portrait banners will no longer be used.

Removal of Trophies. We have removed trophies in the 2.2 editor in favor of certificates. This forms part of platform's philosophy of meaningful learning over gimmicks. If you wish to continue using trophies you can keep your story on the 2.1 editor (this can be adjusted in the story settings).

Zooming. You can now zoom in and out on the editor to get more comfortable view when editing your stories.

New Story Types. There are now new story types that provide appropriate templates, layouts, and settings. The new story types include: Learning Story (the original story type), Article (microlearning Story type), Assessment (standalone quiz), and Survey (standalone survey).

Articles. Create a blog-style post or microlearning experience using a single page.

Assessments. We have removed the Quiz page template from the editor and introduced the "Assessment" story type. Assessments can be created as a separate story, and include settings such as: pass mark, time limit, multiple attempts & certificates. If you wish to continue using quizzes you can keep your story on the 2.1 editor, but we highly recommend creating separate Assessments.

Survey. You can now create a survey as a separate story. Surveys are used to ask questions that do not have a correct or incorrcet answer; they are used to gather information and evaluate sentiment.

Streamlined Editor. We have optimised the way in which stories are created in the editor. You will now notice that providing assets, listing information, targeting and editing happens as a unified experience.

Story Dark Mode. Stories built in the new editor are "dark mode" ready. This means that if users have dark mode enabled on their device their story will automatically adjust colours and apply a darker tone to UI and elements. For Licensees, Sub-Licensees

s or Resellers, this means that a Dark Mode colour can be provided in the app designer tool ahead of an app compile.

Toolbar Colors. We have removed the need to set story toolbars to light or dark. Story toolbars will now show as white and black for dark mode.

Assessments scoring option. Will automatically set the scoring option (story settings) to "Evaluate". This means activities are marked incorrect or correct.

Survey scoring option. Will automatically set the scoring option (story settings) to "Survey". This means activities are not considered right or wrong - any answer can be given.

Learning Story scoring option. Scoring options (story settings) include: "Evaluate" (correct & incorrect answers can be submitted), "Survey" (there are no correct/incorrect answers) or "Teach" (only correct answers can be submitted and the user must attempt until the correct answer is chosen).

Multiple Attempts. When multiple attempts are not allowed (story settings), users can still open completed stories to view the contents again (but they will not be able to redo any activities). This allows single-attempt content to still be accessible after completion.

Allow Activity Skipping. We have removed the indicator to skip an activity in favour of users either clicking or swiping next to skip. Skipping an activity is only possible if this setting is set to "Allow".

Workflow. Annotations will now show the comment when you hover. You can directly mark an annotation as resolved without opening the chat. Annotations / Tasks will navigate to the specific page when clicking the heading in tasks. From Workflow, when selecting "Manage feedback" this will open the story and the task window.

Map Activity. A revised activity counter was added. Maps now show an indicator for all possible app activities not just routes. You can now also skip map activities. Users can also view the map again but can only redo activities if they are re-attempting the story.
