Update September 8, 2022


Overview

Today I am proud to announce that the latest edition of Jappleng has been uploaded. Many changes have been made for this patch and more are coming shortly.

Mainly what has changed is the new education section. Many features have change drastically and as a result required a progress data wipe because grades are now included on a per-lesson and per-module basis. What this means is that each lesson will be edited to support the new module system. Each module can be completed (like a checkpoint) and each module will have a determined amount of grade that may be given. In the future, quizzes and tests etc… will be incorporated in said modules.

You may also track how long you have been studying on a per-lesson / per-course basis and also see your total time spent studying. In the future, there will be achievements, daily and weekly rewards for this.

Each lesson will need to be converted over to the new system by converting the content into individual modules (one-by-one) and this process will take time. Afterwards, they will be edited using the new Lesson Creation Tool that was made specifically for Jappleng authors and in the future, teachers/tutors.

Please keep in mind that as of this moment, only one lesson has been converted over to support the module system (Welcome to JPLearn!) but was not yet edited and references the old assignment system. All other lessons have not been converted over.

The new assignment system will appear in the lesson list for a variety of reasons and it will no longer be its own separate system but act like a regular lesson. This decision was made because it made more sense to do it that way and made it a lot easier for students. All existing assignments will be migrated over as the lessons are also migrated.

Other changes have been applied to the site as they are described below in detail.

 


 

General

  1. Changed color of the general blue header color to a slightly different shade for better readability
  2. Resolved issue where counting users online did not function correctly
  3. Lifetime study timer (system) has been added

Guests

  1. Replaced the "You need to login" panel whenever the user scrolls with a more modern design
  2. Added significant support throughout the education system for new features

Education Home

  1. Featured study groups: Resolved issue where it would fetch list from all clubs rather than educational related.
  2. Latest forum activity: Fetches latest threads and replies from the educational clubs. Also now supports maturity filter. (Previously no filter and fetched all forum threads)
  3. Added "Most popular courses this week" module to home page (originally from the courses list page)
  4. Most recent lessons added information changed. Title is now the title of the lesson instead of course name. Underneath is the lesson description. Under that is the course name
  5. Optimized some code
  6. Featured study group has been resized and club title font has been reduced to 12pt instead of 18pt
  7. Most popular courses this week has been adjusted to appear better (correctly)

Education Course Overview

  1. Implemented new Course Placard System
  2. Optimized Code (2x faster)
  3. Course Information module has been completely recreated, now includes more enhanced enrollment types, fees, status types (ongoing, cancelled, hiatus etc), course description is now shown. Course last update date is now shown.
  4. Course Information module now displays current course progress ie: 40% Complete
  5. Lessons for this course module has been completely restyled
  6. Lessons for this course module now counts Lesson correctly
  7. Lessons for this course module now counts % completed on a per chapter basis
  8. Lessons for this course module now displays lesson description
  9. Lessons for this course module now fades out lesson that have been completed
  10. Lessons are no longer listed as: "1. Lesson title" but "Lesson 1 : Lesson title" The lesson # resets at each chapter as well
  11. Chapter names are now improved. Before: Chapter Title  After: Chapter X Chapter Title
  12. New Module: Latest course downloads added
  13. New Module: Latest course forum posts, includes fresh module design
    NOTE: Course forum posts may not appear on each course yet. I extended the forum system so if a course doesn't support it, it will soon.
  14. Course enrollment system complete
  15. Changed how lessons are calculated for progress. These are individually counted on a module by module basis instead of a pass/no pass system. This also accurately counts grades on a per-point basis.
  16. Time spent studying for course (timer) added

Education Lesson Page

  1. Lessons now support lesson modules. Each module can be completed for a designated score
  2. When all modules are completed, the lesson will complete automatically.

  5. Each lesson can have a desired fee, be it free, j-coins, a-coins, b-coins, event tokens and even dollar amount. Presently all courses are free.
  6. Lessons now show the published date of the lesson or last edited time
  7. Lessons now display the completion status (overall) and on a module-by-module basis
  8. Support has been added for legacy lessons that do not support the module system
  9. Lesson timer has been added to the lessons, you can now track how long you study! Don't forget to turn it off when you're done
  10. Lesson timer controller added, you can also shrink it. If it's active, the expand button will be green as a reminder that the timer is ON.
  11. "Next lesson" and "Previous Lesson" has been added to the footer of each lesson.
  12. Lesson downloads module has been added to the bottom of the lesson page
  13. Assignments are no longer collectable, they are their own "lesson" (Migration is still needed)

Course Downloads system

  1. I completed redid the course download system so that it can be very flexible and expand whenever it is necessary.
  2. Previously it only supported the following formats: "docx, url, xls, ppt" now it supports the full office suite including images, videos and can expand to as many formats needed

Course Download Page

  1. New download section added for courses. All course downloads are listed here.
  2. New download link added to the course menu

Known Bugs

  1. “Enrolled in 0 coureses and completed 0 lessons” is always shown regardless how many lesson are completed or course enrolled in
  2. Mobile users may find it difficult to browse the new eductation system as no support has been added at this time
  3. Under certain conditions “Lesson Complete” will appear at the top right of the lesson regardless of completion status
     

 

In the coming updates I will work on adding more support for the lesson modules, editing the lessons and finalizing the entire system. Starting October 5, there will be an event called “Moonlight Festival” which will be a Halloween themed event filled with free goodies given out every day! Be sure to come by!
