ATutor 1.4 has been released. ATutor is a Open Source Web-based Learning Content Management System (LCMS) designed with accessibility and adaptability in mind.

*Roles & Privileges: Create teaching assistants or additional instructors, or assign instructor privileges to students  

*Test Module Updates: Automatically marked tests and random question tests now available

*Learning Objects Repository: Search the TILE learning objects repository, and import content packages directly into ATutor by entering a URL. Create content in ATutor, then export it to the TILE repository to share with others

*Accessibility Checker: Evaluate content with the content editor's accessibility checker to ensure it conforms with international accessibility standards
