We are excited to announce that as of April 21, 2016, we have released OpenLearning Version 2.0. This means a new schedule editor (for course creators) and course layout (for students). The help topics on this page will be updated over the next few weeks to cover the new features. In the meantime, you can find information to help navigate your way through the new interface under the ‘Teachers’ section of this page. Alternatively, to start experiencing OpenLearning 2.0, simply create a new course!
