Closed captions for your videos, subtitles 

When you have an audience with mixed language background adding subtitles can improve the understanding of your video. The user can watch the video and read the subtitles at the same time. You can watch video when you cannot turn up the volume.  

We have added the option to add closed captions to each of your videos. 

We support the following standard formats for closed captions: 

  • DXFP 
  • SCC 
  • SRT 
  • VTT 

You upload the closed caption file in the Content Editor. Select the topic and press the ‘CC’ icon to upload a file with the subtitles in a specific language.

When you upload the first caption file you select the language and then upload the file:

eCommerce payment gateway – sell courses to users 

If you want to sell your courses online then you can enable our eCommerce solution. This includes settings up an account with Stripe, going through Stripe’s onboarding process, and activating the Stripe account to accept payments.  

The steps to accept payments for courses are: 

  • Enable eCommerce 
  • Start the Stripe account creation process 
  • Define a price table for each relevant currency 
  • Distribute a course as a ‘Sales Item’ 
  • Share the link to the course  

Click ‘Enable’ to e-commerce and then click on ‘Stripe Settings’ 

Click ‘Enable’ to e-commerce and then click on ‘Stripe Settings’

When you click ‘Create Account’ you start creating a new Stripe account.  

If you already have an account, then you can enter the email to your existing account to link them with uQualio®. 

You need to go through the Stripe onboarding process. This includes Know-Your-Customer (KYC) steps so it can take a little while before the account is ready to accept payments on your behalf. 

When the account is ready, then you see these checks as passed.

You must define a price table for your system. You set up a default currency and open the product price dialog.

You can see prices for all durations and products. At the time of writing (April 2022) we only support courses. Channels and Platform access are added in the coming period. 

When your Stripe account is active and your prices are defined, then it is time to create a sellable item. 

You create a new group using ‘Distribute’. Where select the option ‘Sales Item’ on settings.

Users – reports and Purge User (GDPR) 

Our platform is GDPR compliant, and we do our best to follow changes in the regulations. One of the elements of GDPR and similar rules is the ability to remove a user completely. This was previously only possible by requesting uQualio® support to do this via support request. 

We have now added the ability for the account manager to ‘Purge’ a deleted user.  

The process to purge a user is: 

  • Change user status to ‘Deleted’ 
  • Select the user and then click ‘Purge’ 
  • You must confirm the purge before it is started

Please observe that purging users may change your history and statistical data.

Please observe that the saved search must be public for the recipient to open the saved search. 

Video Player shows controls in topics and questions 

As a content manager, you use the timing on the video to set Scene Selector and Question Help. 

Now the controls are not hidden in these cases. This makes it much easier for you to read the entry and exit points.

Admin can remove herself from a group 

Normally you cannot remove rights or access from yourself. Based on popular demand you can now remove yourself from a group. 

We have added a QR code for each topic in your course. The link takes the user directly to the topic in the video.  

This is very convenient for smaller details where you want to make sure they view specific learning content.
