As new browsers gain popularity, TargetSolutions works to optimize its users’ experiences. TargetSolutions recently completed three projects to make the platform more compatible with Internet Explorer 11, including an update to the Bulletin Board, the File Center, and SCORM functionality.

Bulletin Board
If you work in Internet Explorer 11, you will notice a more engaging WYSIWYG editor inside the Bulletin Board. While still utilizing the original text formatting tools of the old editor, this new functionality has given it more options and simplified the process for inserting pictures and videos.

Platform managers using Internet Explorer 11 are now able to insert videos and images into the Bulletin Board without needing to use HTML code.

“Platform managers will no longer need to enter HTML code to insert an image or a video on the Bulletin Board,” said TargetSolutions Product Manager Misty Pratt. “The HTML source edit option still exists, but there is now the option to turn on a feature called ‘code,’ which allows you to write your HTML edits straight into the board without opening the source window.”

The editor also has the ability to insert special characters, anchors, horizontal lines, time and date. There is a table creation and management tab that lets you build and customize tables within the Bulletin Board.

File Center
The file upload tool inside the File Center is now functioning for platform managers in Internet Explorer 11. This update has changed the order of operations for uploading files into the File Center. Now, files can be added to the queue and then a platform manager clicks the “Start upload” button, rather than the upload starting automatically after being inserted into the queue.

SCORM

In the past, SCORM courses were not able to be completed in Internet Explorer 11 without support from TargetSolutions. Those issues have been corrected and SCORM courses now work in all browsers, including versions 8-11 of Internet Explorer.
