Built-in Help files for OpenLabyrinth cases

We have improved our integration of our linked wiki system, based on TiddlyWiki. Now it is even easier to create your own integrated help system for your case.

Check out this example case here:

Authors can now easily create their own help system for a case, or they can grab a copy of the help file from this case and integrate it into their own cases.

Users can now annotate these help files, making their own notes about the case and download these to their own machines. (And these personal annotations remain private – the original file on the server remains intact.)

OpenLabyrinth – an education research platform

Some of the sharp eyed amongst you may have noticed that we have changed the slugline for this web site. OpenLabyrinth has grown significantly more powerful over the past year and can now do much more than just virtual patients.

It has morphed into a research platform with quite broad scope. Over the next few weeks, we will be highlighting some of these new features and incorporating better guidance on how to use them into our support materials and User Guide.

Development will continue apace over the next 4-5 months so if there are features that you would like improved, clarified or strengthened, now is the time to tell us. In particular, we will be exploring how to improve the reporting and analytics structures. If there are any groups out there who are keen to investigate this with us, please get in touch.
