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

This release includes the following changes.

  • Course teams can now include Google Drive files and calendars in courseware by creating a link to the file or calendar in Studio. For more information, see Google Drive Files Tool and Google Calendar Tool in the Building and Running an edX Course guide, and see Embedded Google Files and Calendars in the edX Guide for Students.
  • Several accessibility improvements have made navigating course content easier for screen readers.
  • Data packages now include events that record when learners view the contents of a Google Calendar or Google Drive component, and events that record new posts, responses, and comments in course discussions. For more information, see the Tracking Logs chapter in the edX Research Guide.

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
