Credo Contributes Analytics to Open edX Platform

Credo today announced that it is contributing reporting, learning outcomes tracking and analytics features to Open edX, the open source learning management system originally developed for edX's online courses and MOOCs.

In particular, Credo has developed the ability to tag questions in edX Studio, the platform's course-building tool. According to the company, tagging questions allows users to track information across courses, such as students' mastery of a particular learning outcome. The tracking information is viewable in edX's Analytics reports, providing a way to measure student comprehension and evaluate the effectiveness of course materials.

"We are honored to give back to the higher education learning community," said Mike Sweet, Credo's chief executive officer, in a statement. "And we are appreciative of the opportunity to work with edX as it offers the highest quality courses from institutions who share a commitment to excellence in teaching and learning."
