The following information reflects what is new in the edX Platform and edX Insights this week.
The edX engineering wiki Release Pages provide access to detailed information about every change made to the edx-platform GitHub repository. If you are interested in additional information about every change in a release, create a user account for the wiki and review the dated release pages.
The default Consumer secret key that is provided in Django Admin for LTI consumer configuration is now 32 characters in length, the same maximum length that is supported in the database.
For more information about LTI, see LTI Component.
Information about your course, and links to the LMS, are now available on the edX Insights course Home page. You can now verify the course start and end dates without having to visit the Schedule & Details page in Studio. You can also follow the links to access either the courseware or the Instructor Dashboard.
This release adds one-click access to the video player in Insights. When you work with the “Engagement with Video” feature to review a graph of learners’ viewing patterns for a video, you can now select Expand Preview to play that video. The View Live option is also available so that you can open the LMS to the unit that contains this video component.
For more information, see the Engagement with Course Videos section in the Using edX Insights guide.
