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

This release includes the following changes.

  • A new preview mode in the LMS allows course team members to see the courseware as a specific learner would see it. 

  • Information previously available on the Analytics page of the Instructor Dashboard has been replaced by a link to edX Insights. You use edX Insights to access all of the data analytics for your course. For more information, see Using edX Insights.

  • The icon in the courseware contents next to a graded subsection has changed from a clock to a paper and pencil symbol.

  • The new Open edX XBlock Tutorial guides developers through the process of creating an XBlock, and explains the concepts and anatomy of XBlocks.

For a list of the changes in this and previous releases, see the edX Release Notes.

You can access the weekly release notes as well as all other edX documentation at docs.edx.org.
