Access to learners’ data – New guidelines

When running our online courses on one of the edX platforms (edX, ProfEd, or TUDOC), it is important that in keeping with current privacy legislation we try to limit access to learners’ data so that only those who do need it can view it. A new policy document clarifies the correct roles and responsibilities of any person with access to those edX platforms and is available to help instructors and course teams assign access as appropriate.

The document contains:

  • A description of the different roles in edX and what you can do per role.
  • Two handy reference tables that show the default assignments for each role in order to prevent more people than necessary from having the right of access to the courses on edX platforms.
  • Descriptions of the two processes that help us implement this policy while keeping our administration up to date.

If you have an admin role within a course in the edX platforms, please use this document to help you comply with the guidelines – thank you.
If you have any questions about this, please do not hesitate to contact us.
