Guru's New PDF Library for Certificates and News about Guru for Joomla 3

We’ve just released a new version of Guru for Joomla 2.5. Version 2.2.14 fixes a few bugs and adds an enhancement of the certificate feature. View the change log here.

New Feature - Final Exams

Final Exam is a new feature that was quietly released a few weeks ago. In addition to adding quizzes throughout the course, you can now also set up a final exam built from questions in the various quizzes.

Because you can set an exam as a criterion that students must pass, the Final Exam feature is closely related to the Certificates feature.

Sequential Courses – Gradual Release of Lessons

Right from the moment Guru was released, almost a year ago, people have been asking us for a feature that would allow them to release their lessons gradually — once a day or once a week or once a month.

Today, we released a new version of Guru that allows you to do just that. Not only can you stop students jumping around on the course, you can now use your course as a marketing machine. Send students an email each time a lesson is ready and you’ll bring them back to your site automatically. They’ll stay on your course and renew their subscription to gain access to the remaining lessons. You’ll get more money in your pocket.
