Well, it has been a very busy couple of months here at Intuto.

We launched our beta in December and got plenty of feedback from people who took a look at our first release. A very big thank you to all of you for your patience and taking the time to get back to us. We're sure all the changes we've made will make for a much better experience and end result.

Having got the basic building blocks of the site up and going we decided to focus on a couple of key areas. The overall design and the course editor.

The design is now easier on the eyes and more intuitive and fun.

The course editor was a more complex feature to tackle. From the beginning we decided we  didn't want to create a course editor as complex as many of the enterprise editors, which are mostly designed for Instructional designers and experts. We have tried to stay true to making the editor simple, easy to use and even fun.

In the end , we decided to focus this release on adding the ability to add different types of resources to your courses. Now when you add a new card to a course, you can choose to add resources in the form of:

  •  Audio files, that can auto play when a participant lands on a card
  • Videos embedded from YouTube or other popular services
  • Upload files that can be previewed and downloaded locally
  • Links to other websites and resources
  • Comments related to the card or directed at other participants or contributors to the course.

We're particularly excited about the sharing of comments within a course, as this opens up a new, more engaging way for your staff and customers to interact with you or with each other.

All of these developments are really exciting, but we're just getting started and we have lots of other tweaks planned to release in the coming months. So, login or sign up if you haven't already done so and take a look for yourself, then let us know what you think.
