Creating courses for the Open edX platform

Creating high quality and engaging online courses is probably one of the most important steps in building your online learning initiative powered by Open edX.

This guide is meant to give you step by step instructions on how to use STUDIO the authoring platform to create and configure your first courses. We are assuming you are already using one of eduNEXT’s cloud subscriptions, but in case you are not, you can always get started here.

  1. Access studio and have permissions to create or modify courses.
  2. Create your first courses and control their visibility in your site.
  3. Create a course structure and add contents to your courses.
  4. Use course templates to create courses faster and achieve more consistency.
  5. Add more advanced configurations and tools into your courses
