Week of 1 August 2016

The following information summarizes what is new in the edX platform this week.

The edX engineering wiki Release Pages provide 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.


When a course team member views the course in the LMS as staff, subsections that have prerequisites now include a banner as a reminder that learners cannot access that subsection until they have completed the prerequisites. (TNL-4926)


In Insights, the Daily Student Enrollment chart and the Enrollment Over Time report now include counts for each of the enrollment options and tracks that are offered for your course. Specifically, enrollment graphs now show audit track enrollments separately from honor track enrollments, which are no longer offered. Because of this change, enrollment options and tracks for courses that run after December 2015 can include audit, verified, verified with credit, and professional. Enrollment tracks for courses that ended before December 2015 might also include honor.

For more information, see the Enrollment Activity section in the Using edX Insights guide.
