An Open edX XBlock that Provides Content Recommendations

Bibblio, a platform which provides course recommendations, has developed the Bibblio XBlock with Proversity educational consultant.

“This XBlock will allow the wider Open edX community to easily start suggesting the best of their own content to learners as they explore their offering,” Proversity said on its blog.

The XBlock lets learners discover educational content within the course. Under a “related content” banner, learners are able to consume any kind of media to supplement their learning; video, audio, documents, PDFs, or websites.

The software uses auto-generated metadata and machine learning to display relevant recommendations in real-time.
