Leading eLearning Solutions provider Epignosis has released an updated version of the android mobile application for its eLearning platform eFront with several new features, enhancements and workflow improvements.
The headline feature of the new update is its support for the SCORM eLearning industry standards, in mobile and offline use.
SCORM (Shareable Content Object Reference Model) is an eLearning standard that governs the way that content created in any software can communicate with an LMS, in order to register user progress, training status, quiz answers etc. SCORM 1.2, supported by eFront, is the most popular version of the standard.
The new version of eFront for Android allows users to load, process and view SCORM units, and sync their learning progress with the parent eFront LMS.
While SCORM API compatibility is new for the Android application, native support for the standard (as well as for its successor, Tin-Can/xAPI) has long been offered by the eFront platform for web-based eFront use (on both desktop and mobile).
Two other major features implemented in the new release are support for offline images, which allows the user to download images related to some or all training units to their device for offline viewing, and support for Russian as an interface language.
The update, which also brings a number of smaller workflow improvements, feature enhancements, and user interface polish, is available in the Google Play store as a free download. Note that a personal eFront account is required to use the application.
