New Features

Learner Actions used as triggers

Authors can now leverage learner actions as events to start or end a task's assessments or to end a real time assessment. A learner action is currently a button on the GIFT tutor webpage shown during a real time assessment. The button can have a label and a description (e.g. Use Radio). Learner actions are meant to augment the training environment when the author is unable to inject additional UI components into that environment.


Dropped support for Internet Explorer 11 (IE 11)

We no longer regression test in IE 11, nor do we test new user interfaces in that browser version. GIFT is mainly tested in Chrome but should also support Edge and Firefox. The downloadable version of GIFT no longer launches IE 11 automatically and instead will launch the default browser installed and configured on your Windows computer.
