About Learning Tools


The purpose of Learning Tools is to provide students tools to improve their learning experience. All tools are very easy to use and can be accessed from a unified interface, the floating button. This design is well known and a very common choice in apps.


The plugin is built with flexibility and modularity in mind. The foundation is the local plugin, which implements the management functionality and the unified interface in the form of the floating button. On top of the local plugin, we've created a new (sub) plugin type called "ltool". In the initial release, we're publishing ltool_boomarks and ltool_notes. In the future, we plan many more tools which improve the learning experience even more. Have a look at our roadmap to learn more!
