BrainCert Platform Updates - July 2016

BrainCert Platform Updates - July 2016

Good News! We’re excited to share some new July 2016 updates to the BrainCert platform. In this release, we're introducing several new features, more ways to deliver any type of training online, and other tools and updates to meet your training and collaboration needs. 

HTML5 Virtual Classroom in 50 languages

We are super excited to announce the launch of world’s first WebRTC (Web Real-Time Communications) based HTML5 Virtual Classroom in 50 Languages. HTML5 is an open source markup language that does not require a plug-in to run its applications. Removing the need for proprietary plug-ins like Adobe Flash certainly closes a common attack vector, and because HTML5 updates are delivered through browser updates, they're far more likely to be applied than patches for plug-ins. >> Read more.

Improved 'Adaptive Scoring' in the Testing Platform

We have recently improved the performance of  the 'Adaptive Scoring' alrogithm for faster and accurate scoring. BrainCert's adaptive scoring algorithm evaluates a response and determines the appropriate level of difficulty for the next question. This process helps ensure the test result is a true measure of the individual's knowledge, and not a reflection of their ability to learn and study test questions. >> Read more.

Improved 'Reports' in the Testing Platform

This new update adds several advanced reporting features for instructors.

SCORM Player updates

BrainCert supports SCORM 1.2, and 2004 4th edition content packages and it is tightly integrated in both E-Learning Platform and Enterprise LMS product offerings. There are no additional hosting or bandwidth costs for all your SCORM packages and it comes with unlimited cloud disk space. Simply upload a SCORM package and offer it to your students as a lecture item in a course along with other interactive videos, presentations, and tests.

This new update processes all your uploaded SCORM package 10x faster, and play together nicely.

Course Player updates in the Enterprise LMS

When a guest registers for an user account from the course catalog page, it is now possible to pick and choose a user group to register in to.

Human translated interface language in the Enterprise LMS

We have updated all the language files in the LMS with professional human translations.

BrainCert's Enterprise LMS allows you to change your learning portal interface in multiple languages such as Arabic, Deutesch, English, Español, Français, Hebrew, Hindi, Italiano, Portuguese, and Russian with a single click of a button.

This intuitive and powerful feature allows you set languages based on User Groups for both 'signed in' users and 'guests'. For example, you can set 'French' as the interface language for your French speaking users, 'Spanish' for all Spanish students, and 'English' for all LMS administrators.
