Re: New Version

In an environment where installing the Rev engine as a standalone is prohibited, will they allow installing the Rev engine as a plugin? Good question. I'll have to ask. When I'm at the main campus in my own department's labs, I can usually get stuff installed. But not at the satellite campus. Judy

Re: New Version

That would be excellent! Do you use RR content on moodle now, and, if so, what do you do? Thanks for the encouraging news! No, I do not, because we have no install privileges in the lab. And while they *say* this is negotiable, in reality, it isn't. I can't even get campus IT to install software fo...

New Version

My understanding is that the "new" version should not require that students download an executable but rather the stack will "run" within the browser just as flash content -- requiring a plugin -- runs in the browser.

I also use Moodle and would be happy to see such a thing.

Things like simple animation techniques, making a puzzle, character generation, navigation and inventory/item collection. They were created specifically for people who know nothing about programming (I myself know nex...

Re: Why Forums? What about the List?

[it is possible that Lynn was refering to the fact that a list more than a forum encourage members to develop rich and intricate relationships. Which helps form a stronger and more supportive community (which is obviously something we don't want to loose) but which can also discourage newcommers to...

Do I understand correctly that persistence is detrimental?

From whence came this product if not from persistence?

Re: Why Forums? What about the List?

So what about the lists? They are being more strictly evaluated based on the three concerns above. Very long term lists tend to acquire cultures of their own and a different kind of persistence that can be detrimental to both the company sponsoring it and also impede new users wanting to learn more...
