Zippy Courses: Now with Quizzes in 0.9.14

If you take a moment to look at the release notes for our brand new v0.9.14 release, the first thing that you’ll see is that Zippy Courses just delivered a HUGE request that many of you have been asking for: the ability to offer quizzes and track student performance!

v0.9.14

  • Introduced the new Quizzes feature!
  • Removed javascript issue in Firefox and Safari causing public details options to not be invisible
  • Added encoding check for Pricing Option buy links, allowing spaces to be used in PO URLs
  • Updated Free course functionality to work more seamlessly with Infusionsoft
  • Added more robust timezone support for scheduling.
  • Updated theme customizer to support adjustment of the Post Entry Header Color attribute.
  • Added support for the Norwegian Kroner in currency settings.
  • Revised inclusion of metaboxes in admin, resulting in a faster admin editing experience.
  • Miscellaneous bugs and performance updates

The new quizzes are multiple choice only, allowing you to quickly create a quiz, and assign it to a Lesson.  Using the new Quiz options for a Lesson in the Course edit screen, you can choose which quiz people will see at the end of a lesson, and even require that they complete it before moving on to the next course.

In the admin, there’s a slight revamp of the analytics, allowing you to see not only analytics for your courses, but performance on quizzes – down to the answers given for each question, and how often each answer is given.  Now you’ll know if you’re lobbing people a softball or a pitching a doozy.

We’ve also released a minor theme patch, moving us to v0.9.9 on the Theme.

The updates should appear in your Dashboard today, but if not, you can head over to https://zippycoursesplugin.com/account/ to download the files and update manually.  If you have any questions, run into any issues, or discover a bug, please reach out to support@zippycourses.com.
