eXe Feature Wishlist

This wishlist is generated from forum posts and the 0.14 Online evaluation form.


  • Ability to import iDevices created by other users :) (already works, but would be nice to add export/import buttons in IDevice editor)
  • --(Drag-and-Drop quiz iDevice)-- (We are not a quiz editor. We are a resource creator. Create quizes in other tools and import them into LMS seperately)
  • Ability to associate audio files with selected iDevices, for example Free text or image gallery iDevices (./)
  • Categorisation of iDevices so that they are displayed in a tree structure, rather than an alphabetical list. (Will do hide/show in popup menu in IDevice list)
  • --(iDevice to convert a slide show or Powerpoint with the ability to associate audio files with individual slides)--
  • iDevice to embed educational Java applets (./) (Will add a drop down with "import geogebra", "import xyz", etc. to Java Applet IDevice)
  • --(Ability to split/join the free text and wikipedia iDevice into iDevices with unique ID.)-- (Copy and paste mate! Will increase wikipedia timeout and give user feedback while downloading. Also will look at option for splitting into multiple idevices, one per section. Will look at changing downloader to async, or downloading a bit at a time and updating display with AJAX (nevow) or pyxpcom)

  • Drag 'n' Drop Outline Pane
