Open edX Eucalyptus release notes contain the detailed information on new features and possibilities of the platform, and this Eucalyptus installation guide will help you experience the new release first hand.
Open edX Eucalyptus platform release new features
These are the most notable features of Eucalyptus release as per Raccoon Gang’s point of view:
- Badges for completing course events
- Bookmarks for learners to add to units in the LMS
- Self-paced courses that allow learners to complete courses at their own pace, in addition to instructor-paced courses
- Subsection prerequisites, which require learners to achieve a certain score before they progress to the next subsection
In addition, some new XBlocks were added, including long-awaited mobile-friendly Drag and Drop Problem.
Bear in mind that some things were deprecated. We are investigating how this affects current courseware - stay in touch for updates.
The full list of functionality and features deprecated in Eucalyptus is available on the official site.
What to expect
While we are on bringing Eucaliptus to our University & Sandbox, Raccoon Gang still does urgent installations for customers based on Dogwood release as it's still most robust and bug-free. After we see Eucalyptus is production ready, we will start providing it to customers too.
