Release 22

Read me like a book

Deliver an exciting new book format to your courses with the Digital Book Experience. Integrate our existing digital book into a Magnet course to allow students to smoothly switch from the book to lessons. Let students and teacher easily track progress throughout the experience.

Now add manually marked activities in the certificate issue criteria so that certificates are only issued after the teacher has marked the student’s work.

Digital Book Experience

Magnet 22 introduces a brand-new course type exclusive to the Avallain Magnet platform called the Digital Book Experience which fully integrates the digital book into a Magnet course with indicators in the Magnet interface showing progress through each linked lesson.

Seamless Experience

Students can now work through a course as if they were following a book using an animated and intuitive design. This approach is ideal for courses that are based on already published coursebook material. It is also a novel way of engaging with your students. 

Track Progress

Access lessons via hotspots on the digital book or via the lesson icons and see at a glance what you have finished, what you have started and what is left to do.

Check out the course overview table of contents to see all of your outstanding lessons.

Full Integration with Gradebook

Students and teachers can follow progress in the student gradebook, just as with a standard course.

Fully compatible on mobile devices

Students and teachers can swipe to go from page to page or use the tabs at the top.

How-to (Simple Method)

1. In Avallain Author, create a digital book and link LOs using hotspots as per the existing procedure for digital books.

Manually Marked Lessons Included in Certificate Issue Criteria

Average score and passing score with manually marked activities

Magnet 22 includes an enhancement to the issue criteria for our popular integration with Accredible certificates, which was introduced in Magnet 21. This enhancement allows manually marked activities to be included with average score and passing scores.

Now, if your course contains manually marked lessons, the certificate will be issued using scores from both automatically validated lessons and those marked by the teacher.
