30th April 2015 - Planet eStream – Uploading Content Via Firefly
Planet eStream’s scheduled 30th April release (V5.67) will include an enhanced plugin for Firefly, providing an excellent workflow for our mutual customers.
Integrations with VLEs, LMS’ and MIS’ have been an integral feature of Planet eStream’s ongoing development for a number of years, as a way of enhancing and simplifying the experience for teachers, students and technical staff.
The new Firefly plugin, including an Upload Tool, will enable users to upload content to Planet eStream from their Firefly interface, and embed it directly into their courses.
"We're really impressed by the new level of integration that Planet eStream has achieved through the new plug-in. Not only embedding resources from Planet eStream in to Firefly, but being able to add resources to Planet eStream through the Firefly interface means that everything is pulled together for teachers in a really simple way. This is such a fantastic example of how creativity in the classroom can be supported in the most dynamic way, by intelligent integration between two leading platforms. It’s obvious from the thought that has gone in to this plug-in, that the team at Planet eStream genuinely cares about the experience of teachers and learners in day-to-day learning."
Stefan Allsebrook, Head of Sales - Firefly Learning LLP
