The Online Classroom audio capability has gone through an extensive revamp following user reported browser issues. The new audio recording capability was rebuilt from scratch using new HTML-5 GUM web technology which precludes the use of flash plug-ins on browsers.
The Windows and Chromebook audio launch was on 03 December 2017 and had received some 7,500 recordings by the beginning of 2018.
We are also pleased to announce that the Mandarin Matrix Online Classroom platform now supports audio recording on Apple devices (requires Safari 11), allowing students to record and play back audio on their Apple device. On the first week of its release, an astounding 1,200 recordings from Apple devices were received.
For enhanced security, all connections to and from devices now work exclusively over secure, encrypted HTTPS protocols.
