Kolibri v0.15, the Take Home Release, has taken flight!

Dear Kolibri community,

We are thrilled to announce that Kolibri v0.15 - the “Take Home” release - has just taken flight! Responding to needs from the community amid the ongoing school closures and changing education models, this release is designed to support at-home/in-school hybrid learning, which is a critical step forward to address learning losses of the pandemic.

The Take Home release enables at-home, self-directed, and hybrid learning thanks to these new features:

  • Single learner data syncing ! Offline data collection now allows teachers to track individual learner progress in classrooms and make personalized recommendations for continued learning at home. The offline data collection continues when the student goes home.

  • Improved metadata ! Additional details regarding learning resources allow for more relevant search results when exploring materials.

  • Redesigned learner view ! This shorter path to resources helps learners get to work on assignments more quickly and improves the discoverability of materials.

We’re excited to see #KolibriFly into the world with this new functionality!

We’ve also put together resources to help familiarize yourself with the latest version. Take a look!

And finally, a huge thank you to members of the community who contributed to our GitHub codebase on Kolibri v0.15: cyberorg, mdctleo, Ali-Kazmi, AdamStasiw, paulbusse, alvinhsu-gal220, shivangtripathi, KushalBeniwal, YashJipkate, kmrinal19, udithprabhu, ashmeet13, blackboxo, sophianyberg, Priyaraj17, deepsource-autofix, EliKlein, akash5100, abhimnc
