With the contact tracing in OpenOlat, anonymous proofs of location can be generated in order to reconstruct possible contagious contacts if necessary to stem the pandemic.
The module works with the following five steps:
The data is stored in OpenOlat in accordance with data protection regulations and automatically deleted after a defined period of time.
The practical application is clearly explained in the following video of the OOacademy (german only). For advice and support on the introduction, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
With the document course element, Office documents, PDF and also images are directly integrated into the course.
The following can be used
New documents can also be converted into learning resources, for example, to re-integrate them into other courses. Existing document learning resources can also be used as templates by making local copies of them.
Office documents and PDF are displayed via the integrated Document viewer. Text documents can be edited if the corresponding licenses are activated. The editor then opens in a separate window.
The integration of OnlyOffice now supports the generation of thumbnails of documents.
The editing of documents can be explicitly activated and corresponding editing licenses can be stored. When deactivated, OnlyOffice is available as viewer / reader.
For an improved viewing and editing of OnlyOffice documents on mobile devices, the mobile OnlyOffice Viewer / Editor has been integrated into OpenOlat.
Documents are opened in a separate window for viewing and editing.
The integration of Microsoft Office 365 editors for Office documents is currently being rolled out in the frentix cloud (planned by the end of 2020).
Microsoft 365 logins are now supported in OpenOlat via Azure Active Directory. For consulting and introduction please contact email@example.com.
For examinee with physical or mental handicap, a compensation for disadvantages can be defined before the exam. Participants are given more time for the test.
The compensation of disadvantages can be set via the user administration or directly in the course in the assessment tool on the respective participant.
In the assessment tool and also in the test results the extension is transparently shown. The test time and the test mode (in case of manual control) are automatically extended by the disadvantage compensation.
With the user-to-user relationship in OpenOlat, cross-course support functions for mentors, learning guides and supervisors can be represented.
The coaching tool now provides easy and clear access to the coached users.
For each user-to-user relationship, specific rights can be defined and thus access to explicitly released content of the coaches can be granted, e.g. course list, calendar, absence overview, evidences of achievement and certificates.
The role of "line manager" was also mapped in the coaching tool in the same way. Here, defined contents can also be accessed by users of the own organizational unit.
