Great news! We just released a stable version of Guru 5, our Joomla LMS! After one beta version and 3 RC's, we feel that it's finally ready for prime time. A big thank you for those who submitted bug reports!
So what's new in Guru 5?
We’ve completely revamped the look and feel of course categories, lists of courses and course pages. They look so much better!
We figured that quizzes shouldn’t be mean and scary, so we gave them a major makeover too. Check it out…
Lessons now open in an elegant window that’s easy to use. The list of lessons and the module are on the right, and students can move easily between lessons, make comments and see the lesson description.
Adding and editing media design always did need some love. They got it!
We put a lot of work into improving the usability of Guru 5. We really wanted to raise your conversion rate and bottom line by making Guru easier for users... and you should find that your life as admin has got a lot easier too!
A BIG Call To Action
On the front end, we’ve put a call to action button on cover photos and we allow newly registered members to continue the purchase process.
Free courses have a more accurate message, lessons have descriptions and quizzes now allow for retakes right from My Quizzes page.
Removing Students from a Course
On the back end, you can now remove a student from a course, and we’ve added “save and new” button when creating lessons.
The Categories module now shows an icon of your choice for each category. It looks great.
The teacher interface now looks and works much more smoothly. A new menu item even allows teachers to view, rate and comment on essay answers. Very useful!
We've completely re-designed the shopping cart, here's how it looks like:
