New! Exit a CALI Lesson, resume it later.

We start the Spring semester with a surprise new feature for CALI Lesson users: lesson resume. Here’s a quick tour:

  • The resume feature is automatic. If you leave a lesson by any means such as closing the browser or turning off the computer, you’ll be able to resume later…that is, unless you complete and finalize (more on that below).
  • There’s an Exit & Resume Later link in the upper right that has the same effect as above.
  • To resume a lesson in the same spot with the same score, login to and click “My Lesson Runs in the right hand menu.
  • When you get to the end of a lesson, you’ll be given the option to complete and finalize your lesson. If you take this option, you cannot resume that lesson. You can, of course, run the same lesson again from the beginning. There’s also a “Complete the Lesson” link in the table of contents if you’d like to finalize your score prior to hitting the final screen.

Here’s a more detailed FAQ on the new CALI Lesson resume feature.

Last week was all about education. True, every week in my job is about education. But last week it was about education on the road. My teachers were 8th graders, paralegal educators and The Big Bang Theory.

CALI Lessons’ Self-Publish Option Gets an Upgrade

CALI Lessons are created using CALI Author, a software that faculty and staff at member schools can use freely. We just released CALI Author 4.1.8. CALI Author's AutoPublish feature lets you customize an existing CALI Lesson or create your own original, self-publish your creation, share it with your students, and track its usage. Read about AutoPublish improvements.

Coming soon: new CALI blog, more posts by CALI staffers.
