It’s compatible with the IMS Common Cartridge format for online courseware, and new features include “community hubs,” or course directory networks for public or private sharing; the ability to define when an activity is “complete” and view progress reports along the way; and a comments block for leaving notes on any page where the block exists, which can help facilitate student feedback.
