NexPort Campus Introduces NexPort WebApi v1.0, enhancements to Invoicing, Templates, Custom Profiles, many other improvements
NexPort Solutions released NexPort Campus v5.2.0 Thursday, offering a new WebApi, user interface enhancements and performance improvements that increased the general performance of the system, as well as several new features. In addition, NexPort is moving its underlying architecture away from Monorail MVC to the Microsoft MVC framework. Engineers have increased the speed of NexPort Campus by removing legacy code and refining the NexPort indexing engine.
Using the new NexPort WebApi, clients can now integrate their existing applications, websites and other systems directly with NexPort Campus. The NexPort WebApi is a secure, JSON based API. It is fully documented and provides access to many of the administrative and reporting features in NexPort Campus. Additional WebApi methods will be introduced in v.5.3.0.
New features in this release also included ad hoc invoicing. Ad hoc invoicing means that administrators can now create and manage invoices. NexPort Campus’ Invoicing System is a key part of the newly introduced Point-of-Sale (PoS) model. The PoS model is designed to augment the existing Organizational model, allowing students to receive enrollments through a purchasing system, as well as the standard group membership system.
Custom enrollment fields were also introduced in 5.2.0. Custom enrollments provide administrators and other users with permission to gather information for enrollments via the student input assignment in the classroom. Students will answer the questions, sending that information directly to the respective instructor or administrator requesting the information. The student input assignment also allows administrators and/or instructors to securely gather data for certificates and user profiles. While custom profile fields are not a new feature to v5.2.0, enhancements were made that introduced new profile field types. A new audit log feature tracks any action taken on the fields.
Enhancements to tests and question banks provided users the ability to upload test questions in bulk from a supported file type, making the process of creating tests simpler and quicker. Tests can also now contain open-ended response questions and user-defined question IDs (a unique identifier for searching and sorting). Administrators can use tests from the current organization or a parent, as well. In addition, instructors can add feedback to test questions. This feedback can be shown either after each question is answered or at the end of the exam.
Finally, NexPort Campus 5.2.0 represents NexPort Solutions’ continued commitment to providing our customers with the tools and technologies they require to meet the constantly evolving needs of their students.
