New Features

E-Learning Compliance App (ELC)

Notes and Other State Agency Contacts

You can now open up the details of a state agency and add or update other contacts at an agency. You can also add notes, edit your own notes and view notes added by other individuals in your team so that you always have a record of your communication with the state agency.

Concentrations

You can now map your online programs to concentrations allowing you more ways to track your state authorization progress.

Coming Soon in a future release: Track student enrollments by semester, year and/or concentration, run reports by concentrations and let your visitors explore your information by concentration.

Physical presence flags

You can now also indicate which of your online program meets a physical presence in a state. We have shipped this feature with some generic physical presence triggers and sub-triggers but you can manage and customize these as per your institution through the Manage Physical Presence page.

Program Coordinators

You can now delegate some of your workloads to different Program Coordinators. Program Coordinators can manage Online programs that are associated with their unit and also maintain the authorizations status for their programs.

Profiles

Wizard-based data entry for your users

Profiles can be very demanding of your faculty since there is so much that needs to go in for you and them to benefit from all its reporting and integration features.  We have therefore revamped most of the data intensive profile sections (e.g. Publications) to use some intuitive wizards. The wizards allow us to guide the users as they attempt to add or edit their information.

Org Admins can now edit all Profiles

Designated Org Admins at your institutions now have full control over all the Profiles. This means that you can service your users with needing to contact us. We are of course always available to help.

Core Mentis Upgrades

New App Admin Page

Mentis now has a separate manage page for App admins. Admins can assign/change/revoke application specific role to other users.

Super fast and interactive reporting charts

We have upgraded our charting system to provide better visualization options at super-fast speed. Look out for more updates related to this feature in the upcoming releases.

Filter Course and Award reports

You can now filter the courses and awards reports on various attributes.
