Bonjour tout le monde !
We are pleased to announce the release of the 2014 Edition of all our Rocket Languages courses. A lot of thanks goes to the hard working Rocket team, as well as quite a few members who contributed to the cause.
The major changes are;
A new more user-friendly Dashboard; this style of Dashboard will work a lot better on a range of devices and screen sizes. Also, it gives you an "at a glance" overview of your progress through the course.
You'll see that each Lesson icon on the Dashboard has smaller icons within it, typically one or more of H, W, K, and Q. These relate to the "Testing" part of each lesson.
Both the Interactive Audio, and Language & Culture lessons have a "Testing" tab that replaces the old "My Level".
When you've successfully rated the lesson using one of;
Hear it Say it! (H)
Write it! (W)
Know it! (K)
or the Quiz (Q)
The respective letter icon on the Dashboard will update along with the corresponding icon at the top right of the actual lesson.
Now, Write it! is a new learning tool that we have added in response to members' suggestions about how to improve their writing of another language. Make sure you check it out it's pretty cool!
Nearly every lesson has a multi-choice quiz. Until now the results of this quiz were not included in the lesson rating. That has now changed and quiz results are now pulled through to the Dashboard!
Also, the lessons themselves are laid out in a more user-friendly way. For example, the Interactive Audio Course lessons now have the audio for the conversation and extra vocabulary all on the same page.
My Vocab is the tool that lets you double click on a word or phrase and then store it for future reference. We have upgraded this so that when it pops up it also gives you results from Phrase Finder so you can see the word/phrase in different contexts if it is used elsewhere in the course.
Apps and mobile devices
We are currently working on upgrading how Rocket courses work on the apps and with the multitude of devices that are available today. Please be patient with this!
AN IMPORTANT NOTE!
Because we have added new algorithms into determining how the Dashboard works some users may have an odd looking Dashboard until Quizzes or Write it! tests are completed.
Is there anything else?
Well, yes! There are quite a few cosmetic changes that have been made. These are too numerous to list here!
Also, we are working on a couple of other things that should be out before the end of the year, which will also greatly enhance the learning process!
