May 15, 2014

The following information reflects what is new in the edX Platform as of May 15, 2014. See previous pages in this document for a history of changes.

edX Studio

  • A problem that prevented you from hiding the Wiki in the list of Pages when using Firefox is resolved. (STUD-1581)
  • A problem that prevented you from importing a course created on edx.org into edX Edge is resolved. (STUD-1599)
  • All text in the Video component UI has been updated for clarity. (DOC-206)

edX Learning Management System

  • The Instructor Dashboard that appears to course teams by default in the LMS has changed. The Instructor Dashboard that appears when you click Instructor is now the “New Beta” dashboard. The “Standard” dashboard remains available; a button click is required to access it. The two dashboard versions are also relabeled in this release. The version that was previously identified as the “New Beta Dashboard” is now labeled “Instructor Dashboard”, and the version previously identified as the “Standard Dashboard” is now labeled “Legacy Dashboard”. (LMS-1296)
  • Previously, when a student clicked Run Code for a MatLab problem, the entire page was reloaded. This issue has been resolved so that now only the MatLab problem elements are reloaded. (LMS-2505)

edX Analytics

  • There is a new event tracking API for instrumenting events to capture user actions and other point-in-time activities in Studio and the edX LMS. See Analytics for more information.
