GrassBlade LRS v2.4
GrassBlade LRS is our flagship product, and we want our users to get great user experience with the robustness of the product.
This is the first update of the year and we promise to provide you with a few more in this year to enhance reporting and user insight.
In this update…
1. Rich Quiz Reports
Last year, we added this Rich Quiz Reports to our GrassBlade Cloud LRS. Now, we’re expanding this feature to GrassBlade LRS (Premium and Premium+ plan) users.
If you’re using GrassBlade xAPI Companion with the latest update, you can show Rich Quiz Report to learners too.
2. Zapier App Integration
Last year, we also added Zapier App Integration with GrassBlade Cloud LRS and we’re expanding it to GrassBlade LRS (Premium and Premium+ plan) users.
With this integration, you can perform an action on 1500+ apps on the basis of data coming to your LRS. Also, you can collect activity data from any integrating service with Zapier in GrassBlade LRS.
3. Dashboard Widgets
We have now added more control on Dashboard Widgets. You can now rearrange items showing on the dashboard of the LRS. It also allows users to show or hide available items on the dashboard.
This update also allows us to add more dashboard widgets rapidly. Or, easily develop a custom widget for you.
4. Easy Password Reset
Previously, we have to change passwords from the database, but now users can reset their password using their emails. To do it securely an email authentication is required and it will work only if SMTP configuration is updated in your LRS.
There are few more improvements are done on your favourite LRS. Please update it to the latest version to enjoy the latest features.
5. Security Fix
This update also adds some XSS security fix
GrassBlade xAPI Companion v3.0
Now you can use SCORM wrapped content in your WordPress site. The SCORM content can be uploaded via GrassBlade xAPI Companion like any other xAPI content, and it will behave like any other xAPI Content sending statements to the LRS.
What you can do?
- Upload SCORM Content zip file
- Advanced Completion Behaviour
- Track Progress in LRS
