Brief Project Description

Integrating with Ziprecruiter for job seekers
Video background playback support.
This project enables our learners by giving them the ability to listen to the video lectures while the app is in the background or locked (just like listening to a podcast). In addition, the learners also can control the audio playback (play, pause, seek) right from the control center or from the lock screen.
Video picture in picture support
Sometimes users want to use other apps while watching videos, like to checkout latest feed on twitter or to open up notes app to make notes about the lecture while viewing the video at same time.
This project enables our learners by giving them the ability to watch to the video lectures by shrinking the video player to smaller size so user can multitask with other apps. The learners also have the ability to control the audio playback (play, pause, seek) right from the smaller player.

Developing a Documentation Strategy and Proposed Confluence Organization
Many of the projects that build our documentation on ReadTheDocs.org were broken, we spent some time to fix them and to add testing and alerting so that breakage will be caught earlier in the development process and notify the correct teams.
The Open edX documentation is at https://docs.edx.org. A number of topics are covered there, from operations to development. It is, theoretically, our entry-point for documentation. We have a universal search feature but you’d have to know the URL to go to http://docs.edx.org/search.
Impact/Upgrade: Make the search feature available discoverable and useable for a wide audience. The requires small effort to change but have a great impact platform wide. If our docs are not discoverable people will less likely to benefit from them.
We added / moved the search feature on the main page to make it easier to search though Open edX information across
