[Jenna]: Your input needed! Help us design the next-generation reports and analytics dashboard. Add your requests/needs hereGoal: Knowledge Share around Pain Points

  • Encouragement of bringing common pain points to future agendas. Topics and questions for which experts and presentations might not exist, but would benefit from


  • Overview of a proposed process for Educators working group. Based on existing Documentation process from Axim, modified to avoid requiring RST

  • Decision: John Swope will liaise with Jenna Makowski on upcoming priorities to determine the first section.

  • Decision: Choose a simple section to start with. Map out the topics and start by documenting those topics.

  • Elizabeth Gordon and ASU has developed some of their own documentation, and can copy this over to a format that is ready for RST conversion.

  • Ask: Calling for volunteers to support documentation.

  • Sarina Canelake is available for supporting/teaching documentation for folks who want a resource.

DemoX Course (v2)

  • Goal is to build a new version of the DemoX course that is inspiring and informative for new users of the Open edX platform.

  • Consensus was that people use this course as a basic “how-to” course for students and a reference for course developers.

  • There is appreciation for a course with a common course structure just being available, and so it gets used in a variety of ways.

  • An asynchronous survey will be sent out soon.
