 Printer Version PDF Version


The following changes were released during the week ending 31 March 2017.

LMS

  • Drag and drop problems can now be rescored using the same process that CAPA problems use.
  • On the Cohorts tab on the instructor dashboard, the count of learners associated with the cohort reflects only active learners. Previously, this count also reflected unenrolled learners
  • A problem that prevented learners from using the Show Answer option more than one time has been resolved.
  • When learners select Bookmarks to view their bookmarks, the Bookmark view that opens now covers the whole page. Previously, the left pane that lists course sections and subsections was visible when learners viewed bookmarks. This change improves navigation for screen readers.
  • On the Programs page of learners' dashboards, each program card clearly displays the number of courses completed, enrolled in, and remaining in the program.

Analytics

  • On the Insights Courses page, tooltips that provide a brief description of each column have been added to the Course List table.
  • Summary metrics have been added to the Insights Courses page, showing enrollment totals across all courses.

Website

  • From a course or program's About page, learners can now enroll in any of the course's available course runs.
  • When learners search for courses, results now return only the first run of each course instead of multiple runs of the same course.
  • Catalog performance has been improved so that edx.org and the LMS load faster with fewer errors.
