Release Notes 14


Any course may now include a built-in glossary – a central list of subject-matter related terms along with their definitions.

The glossary can be opened in a popup from the course, allowing learners to conveniently browse and search through all terms. Additionally, authors are able create special glossary links in course content, which reveal the linked term’s live definition, taken directly from the current project glossary.


The glossary can be customized and styled to perfectly match the style of the project.

Several set-based Master Layers and Navigation Sets now feature a glossary button out of the box. Additionally, existing navigation or popup buttons can be easily converted to a glossary button.


The carousel element empowers authors to present any content as a slideshow – a sequence of cycling slides. Slides can be cycled through automatically on a timer, or manually by the learner. Carousel slides can contain any other Composica elements, from simple text and images, to rich interactive content.


The appearance and behavior of the carousel is highly customizable, providing great flexibility in achieving the desired effect.

Review Courses on Mobile Devices

Review mode, first introduced in Composica 12, is now also available on mobile devices, making it easy to ensure that courses are fully mobile-friendly. Courses reviewed on mobile devices can take full advantage of the rich reviewing capabilities already available on the desktop.
