School’s out for Summer – what an academic year!
When we summarize the academic year of 2017/2018 it is with a lot of pride and we would like to begin by acknowledging all our teachers and students for giving us great product feedback and the drive to pursue an even better platform for digital examinations and academic tests.
Here are some of our favorite moments!
A cross-client platform was released in October with the purpose to make the DigiExam application used by students, to look, feel and perform the same regardless of the student’s device. Moreover, to facilitate for teachers and invigilators in a mixed device environment.
1 2 million mark
In early October we reached a milestone of 1 000 000 handed in exams, which is a lot of papers saved! Now, just 8 months later, we are counting down to doubling that number.
Add media functionality
The Add media functionality has changed the way teachers use DigiExam in many ways; what initially was used exclusively for high stakes exams now allow a much more variated usage by allowing Youtube videos, Webb sites, Audio files and PDF documents in an exam or assignment.
Text to speech functionality
The text to speech functionality allows students with special accommodations to perform even better in an exam given that they can listen to all the written text in the exam. Also, like the spellcheck functionality giving the teacher the option to allow it for all students in a certain assignment.
We will continue presenting product news and user cases on our blog, presenting innovative teachers across all fields of education and how they use DigiExam in their field of expertise.
We wish all our users a great summer and later on a warm welcome back to a new academic year in the greatest business there is, Education!
