The following information reflects what is new in the edX Platform during the week of 4 August 2015.
A new metric that measures total interest in your course over time is now available in edX Insights. The Enrollment Activity page now includes a metric for Total Enrollment (the number of learners who have ever been enrolled in the course) as well as for Current Enrollment (the number of learners enrolled as of the computation date, not including learners who have unenrolled).
For more information, see the Enrollment Activity section in the Using edX Insights guide.
EdX has fixed the following bugs in the LMS.
When a course team sent an email that contained a link for a course that was not yet live, learners received a 404 “Not found” error message when they selected the link in the email or followed another link to the course. Links to non-live courses now redirect to the student dashboard. (TNL-2693)
Under Basic Course Info on the Instructor Dashboard, grade cutoffs were listed in the wrong order. For example, grade cutoffs appeared as follows.
D: 0.6, B: 0.8, C: 0.7, A: 0.9
Grade cutoffs now appear in the correct order. (TNL-2848)
A problem with the CourseOverview table prevented some mobile beta testers from seeing courseware. (MA-1063)
When a learner earned partial credit on a problem, the score at the top of
the problem was not rounded to the nearest 10. For example, the score might be
0.666666666667/2 points. (TNL-1857)
