We are glad to announce the release of the IMS-LD package for the .LRN platform. As its main features it includes:
- Full level A support (parser and player)
- SCORM, forums service and QTI already integrated
- Several extra features (users and permissions management, extra feedback with QTI, auto-finish of activities, etc.)
To test this package, you can follow one of this two ways:
1- The "difficult one": install the package from CVS (HEAD) and test it.
2- The quick one: use our test server (http://strauss.gast.it.uc3m.es). Let me explain this server a little bit more...
- Open the URL and choose a server. I highly recommend postgresql-stable (5.2) one
- Login. If you only want to test the IMS-LD package with the pre-installed demo you'd better choose the 'user' cccount (all of the users have the same properties). You can also login as administrator (if you would like to try your own IMS-LD package).
- All the users listed in the main page have the same properties, but if anyone has used 'userN' its actions have been saved, so you'd better take another account ('userN+1') to follow the user's path from scratch.
- Once you have logged into the system, please go to the 'test' community. There, you'll find the IMS-LD portlet. That means, you'll be able to start the demo.
- Next step is: act as if you were in student's shoes and enjoy the LD experience :P
- We will welcome all kind of comments...
- If you login as administrator, please go to 'imsldtest' community.
- This user can administrate not only the IMS-LD package, but also the whole site. This means that the admin is able to create users, Units of Learnings (UoLs), etc.
- No matter what you do, the system will be fully reinstalled in 24 hours, feel free to break or test anything.
- To add new UoLs, go to the control panel tab of the community and search for the portlet named "Unit of Learning Administration". From there you can access the admin interface of the IMS-LD package, and you will be able to add or delete Units of Learnings.
VERY IMPORTANT: THIS TEST SERVER IS CLEANED AND FULLY REINSTALLED DAILY. DON'T LEAVE IMPORTANT DATA THERE WITHOUT BACKUP AND DO NOT EXPECT THIS DATA TO BE THERE TOMORROW!!!
