MECHANICSBURG, PA--(Marketwired - September 12, 2013) - Eduplanet21, the Flipped Professional Development company dedicated to connecting educators & authors together in a Social Learning Network, launches a variety of new software updates and features.

From a new look to being able to create private catalogs, Eduplanet21 has released a laundry list of new features and software updates to their blended learning solution.

New features include:

  • Private Catalog -- The Private Catalog allows individual organizations to display any learning paths, communities, and eLibraries that are available within that organization. Organizations can set the items so users can self-join, or request information about the topics. Intended for, but not limited to Channel Partners.

  • eLibrary Favorite Assets -- Are now accessible via the favorites tab with an eLibrary.
  • Assessment Asset Type -- Acts as an assessment/quiz within a Learning Path to allow users and managers to evaluate their own understanding of the Learning Path.  There are some additional options which assessments have, creators of assessments can:
    • Set the Questions to appear in a random order to assessment takers.
    • Allow/Disallow users to be able to retake an assessment multiple times, wiping the slate clean each time.
    • Require that all preceding assets must be complete before an assessment can be taken.
    • Choose the minimum percentage score required to "pass" the assessment.  (NOTE: There are no requirements to require passing an assessment in order to get seat time credit for the assessment asset or for the learning path).
