Cornelsen presents Scook platform new generation at Didacta, featuring Avallain components
Cornelsen Publishers present the latest additions to its successful platform www.scook.de at the leading educational trade fair didacta in Hanover, Germany.
Using the flexibility offered by Avallain’s Author technology, Cornelsen worked intensively with UX specialists, visual designers, students and teachers to hone a perfect look and feel for the rich interactive content, on any device.
Marie von dem Berge, Head of Product Management in the New Business department at Cornelsen, says: “We are very happy with the result achieved by a complex team of experts at Cornelsen and from a range of suppliers. We really focus on the end users experience, therefore the flexibility offered by the authoring technology in this aspect was of the utmost importance in the selection process.”
Learning system architects will take note that Tin Can (aka the xAPI), a modern standard for recording learners progress, comes to full use in scook. In an exemplary integration of the LRS component of Avallain’s Unity platform, the otherwise Cornelsen-built Scook relies on just the parts of third party technology that add most value at the time, adding speed and flexibility to the entire process.
Ignatz Heinz, Managing Director of Avallain, comments “We are delighted to see our new approach to learning platform solutions come into use in this great product. Avallain Unity is no longer a monolithic platform, it is composed of standards-based components, allowing our customers to mix build and buy as best suits the current market needs.”
