OLAT 7 has been released last week and it contains the integration of a QTI 2.1 test engine (Onyx plugin by our partners from BPS GmbH Germany). Here's the full OLAT 7 release notes:
Some of the new features are a course element supporting IMS Basic LTI interoperability, a wizard simplifying the creation of OLAT courses, a pluggable QTI 2.1 test engine and many improved features and components.
