  • Extending the Open edX platform sustainably through the Open edX Events and Filters framework – We will take a look at how the new Open edX Hooks Extension Framework works, a mechanism to extend the Open edX platform without modifying its core, designed to be used through plugins.
  • Course Licensing with the Open edX Platform – will discuss different ways to support B2I (Business to Institution) within the Open edX ecosystem and show how it is intended to streamline and enhance onboarding and administrative experiences.
  • Enabling multi-language course content – Considering that, according to the latest edX Impact report, there are more than 40 million learners worldwide using edx.org and if we include all Open edX initiatives, there could be hundreds of millions, it is necessary to find viable alternatives for content translation to enable course access for people around the world. This talk will discuss technologies such as text-to-speech, speech-to-text, machine learning translation services and Blockstore, so that courses can become multilingual experiences.
