We are excited that we plan to release Northstar V 2.0 October 28. The updates will include a newly designed website and a completely rebuilt admin portal for testing-location admins and proctors. In anticipation of this release, please plan on not using the Northstar website the weekend of October 27 and 28, as our current website will be unavailable. Admins and proctors will receive communications this month with more information on how to best prepare for the upgrade. Follow us on Facebook or Twitter to receive updates as the release approaches.

Last week, we released the Beta version of the first updated html5 module, Computer Basic!s! Sponsor sites are welcome to review this (primary contacts have the URL), but it should not be used with clients until we complete any needed revisions, after formal field testing in February. We updated the standards for the module as part of the upgrade process, to reflect changes in technology since Northstar went live in 2012. We will be upgrading all modules over the next year or so (depending on funding).
