What's new in Testpress Learning Management System - Oct 2020

One of the common feedback which we get from customers is that they aren't aware of the new features which are being released inside Testpress. We are addressing this going forward by documenting what new features gets released every month.

There are some exciting updates in Testpress and we’ve got a lot to cover today, so let’s get started!

Pop-up questions in your videos

When you publish a video for your students, it is very important to ensure that your students have understood what they are seeing.

One highly promising tool to increase the effectiveness of educational videos is the introduction of questions that pop-up within the video. This is called as Interpolated Testing.

Now you can do the same inside Testpress LMS.
