Release Notes 9


Sets are extremely powerful templates that can be easily inserted and customized directly from the ribbon.

There are static sets, which help authors display information in interesting and eye-catching ways, and interactive sets, which integrate with existing interactions, to help authors create beautiful activities without having to invest time in their design.

Over 2,400 set variations are readily available. Each set can be infinitely customized to create the perfect look-and-feel for your individual course.

Sets offer:

  • Powerful smart templates, to help learners visualize information and interactions in beautiful, interesting ways.
  • Over 2,400 set variations, each infinitely customizable.
  • Unprecedented control over color combinations and alterations, available both before and after inserting a set.
  • Unlimited customization of sets after insert, just like any other Composica element.

xAPI / Tin Can / Experience API

Authors can now publish Experience API packages directly from Composica and use them in any supporting LMS or LRS.

Experience API (previously called Tin Can) is an e-learning standard designed to replace SCORM, and provide modern solutions to several problems SCORM just couldn’t handle well enough.

Composica courses will attempt to communicate every aspect of the learner’s experience, down to the individual answer level. All that data can then be aggregated and analyzed by an LMS to get a better idea of what your leanrers know, where they struggle, how quickly they learn, and much more.

Preview Translations

Projects and any individual page within them can now be previewed in the context of a translation, without having to publish the course using that translation.

This unique feature will save authors plenty of time and effort, previously spent publishing and republishing, in order to adjust and test content with all required translations.

Other changes

  • Unpublish a project published to the web server using the new Web Publications widget of the Project Dashboard.
  • Media Player offers a play button overlay over the media, to make it easier to identify and play.
  • Media Player features a new Poster property, allowing authors to specify an image to display while a video is downloading, or until the learner hits play.
