Release Notes

October 11, 2019

Thanks for all your feedback! Here are the new changes and functionalities we implemented into our Platform since our last major release: 

1. Rebranding

This was the biggest change you asked for! Our Platform and website now have a brand new look with an intuitive user experience and increased content management capabilities.

2. Payments

We know how you wanted your transactions stored on the blockchain. Now we can do it by mirroring fiat payment transactions on the Ethereum network.

We’re also allowing students to hold a spot for a program by making a deposit, while ODEM will be receiving and making payments using our ODEM Token on behalf of all users who transact with fiat currency through Stripe!

3. Educator’s Command Central

Educators can now create programs, offer students staked enrollment and link to ODEM’s Learning Management System (LMS) to create curriculum for online, in-person, blended and self-paced courses. Finally, educators have an open venue to reach students worldwide in whatever format and price point works for them.

4. Registration LITE

We heard how you didn’t like how our registration form was lengthy. As a result, we minimized it! Now only your name, email, password and role will be captured on registration.

Your remaining fields can be filled out within your Platform profile.

5. Learning Management System

We understand that as an educator, who’s keen to teach, you may not have a learning management system (LMS) to integrate with your course content. Students who are registered for your program on ODEM will also be registered to use the Moodle LMS Dashboard to view your teaching material! Once your program is done, you can close or archive the Moodle session to route your students back to ODEM to receive their certificates! 

We couldn’t have made these changes without you. Please submit your feedback here to make our Platform better!

Thanks!

Team ODEM
