EdX has released a new version of its app for Android and iOS, 2.10, with video-enhanced features (after all edX’s app is mostly a video companion tool). This app is available for both edX.org and Open edX independent sites’ learners.
The main two new features empower learners to access all course videos in one place as well as delete downloaded clips (with a left swipe in iOS or a long press in Android).
Upcoming versions of the mobile app will have tablet support, and will automatically open in Spanish mode if a learner’s mobile phone is set to use Spanish.
Another interesting improvement at edX.org courses refers to learner profiles. Now they include the date a student joined edX and links to social media accounts. Soon, any certificate earned will be visible on their profiles.
