 XBlock Development

 

Delivering the online course content to learners in better ways is the most important thing in educational ecosystem. Course creators should combine different components from different sources to provide qualitative and useful course content. XBlock is a powerful tool that allows enhancing and extending the Open edX platform to meet learners and teachers future needs and is a great way to create interesting and attractive courses. XBlock usage allows combining different formats like text, audio, video and other multimedia objects into one course and offers an APIs for other modules in the edX to communicate with the course content. Xblocks provide the convenient interface for delivering various training materials to the learners.

Raccoon Gang provides the full spectrum of custom Open edX development which includes XBlocks development, as well. We have a great experience in building and supervising in such courseware components including edX video player, edX video pre-rolls, chemical equation problem, conditional, poll, LTI, drag&drop, Shindig, etc.


Some of our works: 

Video pre-rolls

Enables course teams to add a short video (3-10 seconds) to the beginning of the course videos to promote the organization that created the course.

Shindig integration

Enables course teams to create, sync and edit Shindig Events

Conditional

Background: Usage and modification of Conditional Module can be undertaken only with course import/export mechanism. Now Creation and modification of Conditional Mode are enabled within Studio functionality.

Location id

Background: Review of xblock location is enabled. Field "show_location" is added to course settings; this is a field visibility of xblock location depends on. This functionality is an important part of Conditional Mode editing.

A wide variety of Open edX core development is available to our clients. Raccoon Gang experts can change or adjust main platform's functionalities in order to achieve needed result. Moreover, team will provide solutions to avoid problems with Open edX version updates, security and scalability. 


Some of our works: 

Passing Grade

A feature that allows adding a percentage value to each "Assignment Type" for setting the course's grading. This value affects the passing score of the whole course. Thus, if there is such value in the passage subsection, students will have to collect the required number of points in all kinds of individual practical work to be allowed to complete the course.

Multi-proctoring

Feature that makes it possible to create a list of proctor providers and select one from the list for a particular course. This is a functionality of multi-proctoring which allows:

1) to add all available proctor providers to the system settings,

2) to choose a corresponding proctoring service by a course administrator (studio -> advanced settings).
