It’s an honor to work with so many amazing teachers and instructional designers to make Versal a valuable part of your daily lives, and today we are excited to announce that Versal is officially out of beta.
Of course, this doesn’t mean we won’t continue to evolve and improve, and we definitely have several cool new features on the way soon (along with new gadgets being released almost every week!). It is simply our way of saying that all of the core components are in place for you to successfully create fun and interactive lessons and courses for your students.
Thank you to everyone who has offered us your support and feedback along the way – it’s been invaluable and we look forward to continuing this amazing journey with you.
We are working with Wolfram Research to offer teachers direct access to Wolfram’s vast catalog of interactive math and science exercises via Versal gadgets. Soon you’ll be able to embed content based on Wolfram technology directly into your Versal courses and lessons. Deeper integration is planned for the future, including making Wolfram resources such as Mathematica readily available in the Versal platform. Read the press release.
