Term View UI Updates


Release Date


Release Series Overview

A series of updates to Engage are planned for 2016 with the following goals in mind:

  • Responsive Design - The experience is being optimized for all devices (laptops, tablets, and phones). Engage is now responsive to all form factors.

  • Content Experience - The changes optimize the content experience, with more screen space dedicated to content. Clicks are being reduced to access common functions.

  • Offline - A new method of offline access that removes the need for a Chrome Extension is on the way, utilizing new browser standards.

  • Additional Content Types - In addition to pdf-based texts, uploaded documents, and links, additional content types will soon be available. Support for ePub and video content is currently underway.

Several of these goals have progress in recent releases, but the 5/18 release was the first with major noticeable changes. The release for 6/2 will have another set of major UI changes for the term view.
