GURU 5.0.13 With More Usability Improvements Have Been Released

​Recently we started the GURU usability and user experience updates and today is the time for another round of minor fixes but yet big improvements in this department. Our team was hard on work and this is what they came up with:

1. Added an option to reset all view in lessons, pass quizzes and certificates for courses that are retaken
2. Added an option to export PDF user lists with MPDF library (if it's available on the server)
3. Added a new Menu Item option to "My Cart" page
4. Added preferred Joomla! editor in the lesson description field instead of the textarea, now the teacher can add HTML code in lesson description
5. Option for teacher to see the students progress and available certificates
6. Option to redirect Student to a custom page when course is completed 

​We are determined to continue improving usability and user experience in GURU so stay tuned for the future updates

GURU 5.0.12 With Usability Improvements Have Been Released

While fixing the iOS issues and adding PayFast plugin in Guru, our dev team found few usability issues and implemented improvements which will greatly improve the day-to-day routine while using GURU.

What's New?
  • We added a "Save & New" buttons when creating or editing a new media item or course page. A simple change yet, it saves a lot of time as you don't have to close the page just to open a new one again. Instead, content creation flow is more natural now.
  • In Guru Media Library page, there is a new option to change the category of the media for multiple selected items at the same time.
  • In Courses Stats page we implemented the option to view quiz results for all students.
  • Option to set "All lessons" available for some students who bought sequential course on the student page.
