Product Update: Books

By Freddy May on Oct 2, 2017 5:00:00 PM

The most significant new feature of the last 6 months is Codio Books. Until now, when you created your course materials, each course unit was its own Codio project. Switching between units required the new unit to be loaded, which can take several seconds. This is annoying when you want to reference learning materials and earlier assessments. When revising materials, this is especially annoying as the reloads become very irritating.

As a result, we created Codio Books. The vastly improved table of contents allows you to create very large bodies of content, divided up into chapters, sections and pages, nestable to any level. All of this content lives within a single Codio project, so students are free to switch between any part of the course without reloads.

When you create your course units, you can now also map a unit to any part of a book that you like. Students can, at your option, be restricted to the book content mapped to the unit, or you can allow them access to the fun book.

Feature summary

  • Sophisticated table of contents
  • Multi select and drag and drop of table of contents elements
  • Nesting of sections and pages to any level
  • Content search
  • Map any part of a book to a course unit
  • Publish as a standalone book (without unit mapping)

Product Update: Upgrade course for a class

By Freddy May on Oct 2, 2017 3:47:11 PM

We have added a new button in the class that allows you to pull in all changes to all units for a course with a single button click.

Codio scans the class units and compares them with the published versions of the course. Where there are newer versions in the course, it presents a list of those units to you. You can then specify which units you wish to update in your class.

Codio manages the updating process so that, wherever possible, units that have already been started by students do not result in work being lost.
