EdX has just released the newest version of the edX platform on edx.org and edX Edge.

This release includes the following updates.

  • Several improvements have been made to drag and drop problems. Draggable items can now match more than one target zone, and you can now include an optional assessment mode to require learners to drop all draggable items before they receive any feedback. For more information, see Drag and Drop Problem in the Building and Running an edX Course guide, or Drag and Drop Problem in Building and Running an Open edX Course.

  • In Studio, course teams that add videos to a course in languages other than English, and want to provide English transcripts can now select English from the transcript language list. For more information, see Add a Transcript in Another Language in the Building and Running an edX Course guide, or Add a Transcript in Another Language in Building and Running an Open edX Course.

  • For some courses, course teams reported that selecting a discussion post failed to show its responses and comments as expected. The defect that caused this problem in the course discussions has been corrected.

​For more information about the changes in this release, see the edX Release Notes. You can access the weekly release notes, as well as all of the edX documentation, at docs.edx.org.
