April 14 is International Moment of Laughter Day. I thought it would be great to collect jokes from Velsoftians so that we could all have a few moments of laughter. The response was overwhelming. Here are some of the jokes I received:

Tech Topics


  • Course revision history:
    • Reduced the number of entries added to the revision history when saving pages. Previously, two entries were always added: “modified page” and “modified metadata.” The metadata entry will now only be added when questions are removed from a page.
    • The “modified metadata” entry will now have an author set when a page is saved or a question is added to a page.

Bug fixes

  • Fixed overall course scores in reports not updating in some cases:
    • When cloning, copying, or deleting a page that has questions.
    • When adding a question to a page.
    • When removing a question from a page.
    • When inserting a page break and there are questions after the break.
    • When the mobile app synchronizes answers that were submitted offline.
  • Fixed an error that occurs when exporting a course to EPUB format.
