The team had a great time today eating lunch on the lawn, playing Bocci Ball and watching the Great American Eclipse. No eyes were damaged watching the eclipse but a few egos may have sustained injuries during the bocci ball matches.

The Institute for Learning’s 2017 Conference, Designing for Difference, featured outstanding workshops and presentations. It was also the first such event in which DialogeX participated and it will not be the last. I was impressed by how many of the fellows and partners with whom we met were already familiar with the online professional development projects that DialogeX and IFL are pursuing. Further, several IFL fellows are now deeply involved with our technology partner, NexPort Solutions, to develop features and functions to make IFL online offerings come alive (virtually speaking…). I must say that in 30 years of training and education experience, I have seldom encountered such an incredibly engaged group of professionals.
Several of this year’s conference topics spoke to opportunities for creating voice and agency among student populations. However, what about those instances when the “student population” (i.e., the participants) is comprised of professionals? Perfunctory “one-shot” solutions at professional development seldom provide opportunities for voice or agency. DialogeX is working with IFL to provide such opportunities and to enhance the online experience.
DialogeX’ technology partner, NexPort Solutions, is working directly with IFL fellows to identify their needs, values, opinions, passions, and ambitions for the NexPort Campus online platform (i.e., voice). Experienced software developers will tell you that it is from these user stories that great user experiences emerge. This is resulting in a set of features and functions that will enable IFL to act upon the online environment that delivers their programs (i.e., agency). Here are some examples:
The bottom line is that educators can now choose to act with a purpose, pursuing an online professional development experience that addresses their needs rather than enduring a one-shot “death by PowerPoint”.
NexPort Solutions is pleased to announce the release of NexPort Campus version 5.7.6. This is regularly planned point release that includes several bug fixes and a single enhancement.
We are excited to announce the release of NexPort Campus 5.7.0! This release features many new features, enhancements and bug fixes that our partners have requested. Notably, in 5.7, all media assignments now use a mobile-ready video player that works on both desktop and mobile devices. All videos uploaded to the NexPort media library will be automatically converted into a web ready mp4 format.
Other enhancements include the addition of waiting periods to test attempts, ordering of test questions, API enhancements and many more. A full listing is provided below.
NexPort Reporting Services (NRS) version 2.0 will include many enhancements but top among them are enhancements to the dashboard functionality. In NRS, users have been limited to only displaying grid reports in dashboards. With the release of version 2, NRS will introduce a full spectrum of graphs, charts, pivots and visualizations. All of these will be tied to existing reports, including aggregate reports. Additionally, these dashboard widgets will allow users to visualize a snapshot of the report or a trend over a user defined period of time.
Check out this video preview made by our senior NRS engineer, Brette Forinash.
In order to continually improve our user's experience, we release updates to the NexPort software on a regular basis. NexPort Campus version 5.6.5 addresses several issues found to cause intermittent outages as well as a bug in the rendering of HTML Media Assignments.
If you experience any problems please contact our support team.
