October 23, 2014

The following information reflects what is new in the edX Platform as of October 23, 2014. See previous pages in this document for a history of changes.

edX Website

Visitors to the edx.org website can now search for courses by name, school, or subject. Search results can be further refined by selecting course availability (for example, Current, Starting Soon, Archived) and type (for example, Verified, High School, Professional Education).

edX Course Discussion

  • When you enter a search term on the Discussion page, the search starts either when you click the magnifying glass icon or press the Enter key. Previously, only use of the Enter key started the search. (TNL-526)

  • After you mark a response to a question post as the correct answer, a message that describes this action is added to the response. The hyperlinked username in this message now correctly opens a new page showing your contributions to the course discussion. (TNL-188)

edX Studio

  • The protein builder tool now correctly uses font sizing set by user browser preferences. (TNL-256)

edX Data & Analytics

  • For compatibility with database import tools, a field in the child_render event was renamed. The event member field is now named child_id instead of child-id.
