|Online Reader:||January 23, 2018|
|Windows and Mac:||January 25, 2018|
|iOS and Android:||Mid-February 2018|
Redesigned margins in Reader apps
- Notes made in an EPUB will show up in the margins of your book on all platforms, as they currently do in the online Reader.
- This eliminates the need to click on highlighted text to view attached notes.
Copy and paste notes
- Users can easily copy all notes they’ve made in an eText to their device’s clipboard.
- Copied notes can be pasted into a word processor or the body of an email like any copied text.
- Each pasted note appears along with the chapter and page on which it was made and the highlighted text to which it was attached.
In-app dictionary support
- Users can look up the definition of a word in an eText with just a couple of clicks.
- Definitions are taken from Oxford’s online dictionary. They appear in a window within the Reader.
New print restriction options
- Publishers can impose a limit on how much content can be printed from an eText prior to the deadline for students to drop or add courses.
- Separate limits can be established for before and after the drop/add deadline.
Willo support for LMS
- Kivuto has partnered with Willo Labs to provide two key services for schools that distribute resources through a Learning Management System (LMS).
- One-click access to courseware sites provided by publishers without the need to enter a code
- The ability to provide a free access period for resources before users are prompted to purchase or opt in/out.
- Users can be issued trial licenses that automatically expire at the end of the window to drop or add courses. A permanent license is then issued only to users who opted in. This eliminates the need for schools to provide whitelists at the end of the drop/add period.
- It is now possible to configure book-specific links in schools’ LMS that can direct users straight to a specific page when clicked.
