OLAT 5: New Functions and Course Elements

In this information event we will show you the new possibilities of OLAT version 5, the strategic learning management system at the University of Zurich.  
With the update to OLAT 5, a number of new functions are available to our authors. These include the course element "Exercise" or the course design "with learning progress" of the type learning path. In addition, some video, test and task elements have been revised, e.g. questions of the type "gap text with drop-down" can now be created. We would like to show you these and many other new functions and UZH enhancements in OLAT 5.0 directly in this live demo.
