Items Editor – New Functionality

The mAuthor editor makes it now possible to drag and drop the elements from the Items Editor List.

To change the order of the elements in the Items Editor for modules such as TrueFalse, Table or Connection, simply click on the item of your choice, hold the mouse button and move the element up or down the list.

Interactive Character Animation

Iframe animation offers now the possibility of creating and embedding in the editor an interactive animation in the form of some kind of “avatar”. The animated character controlled by Advanced Connector reacts to various user’s actions, gives feedback or provides useful hints.

More information on this functionality is available in mAuthor documentation. You may also view a short demo presentation showing basic avatar’s features.

Pseudocode Console – New Scripting Addon

Pseudocode console is a brand-new scripting Addon that allows executing pseudocode and defining correct output for checking answers. It gives the possibility of selecting the code from Programming Command Prompt or calling executeCode from JS.

To learn more about the Addon’s functions, go to mAuthor documentation. We also encourage you to view a demo presentation.

New Addon – Page Progress Panel

Page Progress Panel allows using a ready-made page progress bar indicating the percentage progress made on a page. The Addon also displays such information as the number of correct answers, checks, errors/mistakes and maximum score. It is possible to enable or disable each of these properties.

More information on Page Progress Panel is available in mAuthor documentation. You may also view a short demo presentation.

Text to Speech – New Functionality

Text to Speech allows users to play voice from text in many languages. The Addon provides a dedicated screen reader and takes advantage of the Web Speech API included in the user’s internet browser.

TTS addon together with the interconnected keyboard navigation is a perfect substitute for standard screen readers which don’t always provide sufficient support for mAuthor interactive educational materials.

More information on TTS is available in mAuthor documentation. You may also view a short demo presentation.

New Addon – Timer

Timer has just been added to a wide spectrum of mAuthor Addons. It allows users to insert a timer functionality to their presentations, which works in two modes: Timer (it counts time from the defined value to 0) and Stopwatch (it counts time up from 0). Timer is a great solution for all activities and games with a time limit.
More information on the Timer Addon is available in mAuthor documentation. We also encourage you to view a short demo presentation showing the Addon’s main functions.

Shooting Range Gaming Addon

The Shooting Range gaming Addon allows users to play a simple shooting game. Players are supposed to select all the correct answers in a limited time. The game can be restarted by using a proper command; it is also possible to view the scores and errors.

More information on Shooting Range is available in mAuthor documentation. You may also view a short demo presentation.
