EdX has just released the newest version of the edX Platform on edx.org and edX Edge.

This release includes the following changes.

  • Course teams can now include randomized content block components in their courses to randomly select problems from a library and present them to learners. Libraries can be used across an organization’s courses, so course teams can work collaboratively to add problems to the library. For more information, see Randomized Content Blocks or Working with Libraries in the Building and Running an edX Course guide.
  • New events that record which problems in a library were delivered to a learner by a randomized content block component are now included in daily data packages. For more information, see the Tracking Logs chapter in the EdX Research Guide.
  • Open response assessments can now include more than one prompt. For more information, see Creating Peer Assessments.

For a list of the changes in this and previous releases, see the edX Release Notes.

You can access the weekly release notes as well as all other edX documentation at docs.edx.org.
