Online LMS Promotes Assessment Activities
- By Dian Schaffhauser
A new Web-based learning management system allows for teaching and interactive presentations to be delivered online with an emphasis on
assessment. ScriptoPro, introduced earlier this month, includes modules for creating

embedded in ScriptoPro class pages or on an instructor's existing Web site or blog.
The quiz generator allows educators to create and deliver tests and quizzes online and monitor and report on the progress of their students.
