November Highlights from the Chief Chalkie
Hello Chalkies! Did you notice that several brand new features for elearning content development have been added to SoftChalk 7 since its initial release last August? A recent update included a few fixes, but also enabled a new "ReadSpeaker" feature and Curriculum Standards Chooser. Also in the works is the ScoreCenter for Moodle plugin, which will be released Friday, November 11, 2011. Read the full e-newsletter to learn more about these exciting new features.
We've also been busy working with BlendedSchools.net to build BSNCloud, an independently branded version of SoftChalk CONNECT. BSNCloud will host Open Educational Resources (OERs) built by BlendedSchools.net. Teachers from around the world will be able to directly embed or link to these learning resources to expand and enrich instruction. Learn more about this initiative at this month's Innovator's session.
The SoftChalk Team has been hard at work on the next version of SoftChalk, scheduled for release next summer. In addition, look for a re-design of the SoftChalk CONNECT site due in early spring. If you have any suggestions for enhancements to either product, feel free to drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to hearing from you!
