The following information reflects what is new in the edX Platform this week.
In a pilot implementation, the edX Edge site is now being used as a learning tool interoperability (LTI) tool provider. Course teams use this feature to present content from edX courses, including advanced problem types and videos, in their on-campus learning management systems. The “edX as an LTI Tool Provider” feature can make it easier for you to teach with, and students to learn from, the best materials available, regardless of platform.
Support for this feature is currently provisional. EdX is working with our early adopter partners to support further testing of this feature with additional learning management systems.
For more information, see Using edX as an LTI Tool Provider in the Building and Running an edX Course guide.
Developers who are interested in extending Open edX Insights can now set up a separate development environment, the Open edX Analytics Developer stack, to support analytics development. This environment, known as the Analytics Devstack, includes the edX Analytics Data API and Open edX Insights, as well as all of the components needed to run the Open edX Analytics Pipeline.
For more information, see Installing Open edX Analytics Devstack in the Installing, Configuring, and Running the Open edX Platform guide.
