we are working to expand our courses with live sessions, where students would follow a prepared syllabus divided into sub-steps and after each step they should confirm whether they have succeeded in the step or if they have a problem with something and need help (possibility to upload file + notes). I worked at Moodle for a long time, but now I would need to find such a feature for OpenEDX. May I ask if you have encountered anything like this, if you can advise what would be similar to that? Teacher then have a list of students and topics in overview with Green (OK state) or Red (something went wrong).
The second feature I would glad to find is the ability to comment live and collaborate on the video. Imagine a video file where you can add a comment or even annotate a video on the timeline to collaborate with other students in a real time.
Welcome to the community.
As Open edX® was originally geared towards MOOCs (a scalable use case), some of these types of advanced smaller classroom features do not exist in a standard Open edX® installation but should rather be a plugin or custom development.
You can check out all the features and extensions here:
(1) Section Feedback:
Is it possible to get a link to the Moodle feature so I can check it our in more detail?
(2) Video Annotation:
Check out the annotation tool: 10.3. Annotation Problem — Building and Running an edX Course documentation
I’m unaware of such a video collaboration tool existing in Open edX®. Regardless, videos are not (usually) hosted in the Open edX platform but rather hosted in 3rd party sites like YouTube or Vimeo and embedded in the Open edX® course. If your third party video hosting provider offers those kinds of tools, perhaps they’ll work in the course too.
the kind of video interactions you are asking for can be delivered with a third party tool call Annoto.

I believe there is also an upcoming webminar organized from the Open edX marketing working group to present their tool . stay tuned.
