beook 6.4.0

Tuesday June 2, 2020

We have used the last months to create numerous extensions, improvements and bug fixes in beook again. These are the news of version 6.4:

Learning scenarios

From version 6.4, beook offers the possibility of creating and executing your own learning scenarios. The scenarios can be used, for example, as exam preparation or to memorise what you have read. You can add any pages and tasks to your individual learning scenario, even from different teaching materials.

Images in your own pages

Creating your own pages in the content between the sections, this was already a frequently used feature at the beginning of beook to create summaries or to add further topics to the book. Now you can add as many pictures as you like as a gallery and place them anywhere in your own pages, simply by dragging and dropping. So you can create pages that are just as beautiful as the actual teaching materials. We have also modernized the editor and made it more clearly arranged.

Excerpts from teaching materials

With the new version it is possible to load an excerpt of certain teaching materials, which allows a limited number of pages or tasks to be used from a chapter. You can find the teaching materials under "Other ebooks" at the respective providers.
