Here’s a recap of our June 2022 newsletter:
[Nutmeg Release] Nutmeg, the latest stable version of the Open edX platform, is now released! Nutmeg brings exciting new features such as the user tour (taking new learners through a quick tour of the course), new weekly course goals with reminder emails, and improvements to various micro front-ends (MFEs) and the mobile experience. As always, be sure to upgrade your Open edX instance(s) as soon as possible! Kudos to folks from the Build-Test-Release Working Group who worked hard to make the testing and release processes as smooth as possible! Also, please let the group know if you spot any bugs or issues.
[July Meetup – Text To Speech] On Thursday, July 21, the Open edX Community will gather for an online meetup to discuss how course authors can leverage text-to-speech solutions for a more inclusive learning environment. Registration is free, so save the date and join for a captivating meetup!
[June Meetup Recording] Earlier this month, the Open edX Community gathered to discuss a great education project led by our friends at RacoonGang – a project in which the Open edX platform is leveraged to provide students with digital education in the difficult context of the Russian invasion of Ukraine. The recording of the meetup is now available to watch on Open edX’s YouTube channel.
[Fox Interview] While we were soaking up the warm sun and ocean air in Portugal during the 2022 Open edX Conference, our friends at The Center for Reimagining Learning (tCRIL) grabbed the opportunity to conduct a short video interview with Fox Piacenti, who leads business development at OpenCraft. This is a good occasion to learn more about OpenCraft, what we like to work on, and how we work – so go ahead and watch it : )
