At first glance, it may be difficult to differentiate between edX, the online learning initiative of edX Inc. (edx.org), and the Open edX platform. In short, edX is a non-profit initiative that provides top-notch online courses from Harvard University, MIT, and hundreds of other consortium members; Open edX is the technology platform created by edX Inc. to power this initiative. Additionally, since Open edX is an open-source technology, it can also be used to power other online learning initiatives not affiliated with edX.org. At eduNEXT, we strive to assist these initiatives by offering services and solutions based on the Open edX platform.
The Open edX platform is a cluster of applications designed to enhance learning experiences for both educators and students. These applications include the LMS or learner platform, the studio or authoring platform, the ecommerce application, the insights platform, and mobile apps. To learn more details about the capabilities of each of these applications, click on the links provided above. Additionally, the complete documentation can be found here: https://www.edunext.co/knowledge-base/. We have also compiled a list of features that have been identified by the Open edX community to simplify the exploration process. Finally, the best way to explore the platform and its various functionalities is by setting up a demo or by creating your own site.
Courses on edx.org are publicly listed in the edX course catalog and are open to learners from around the world. To publish a course on edx.org, your organization must have an agreement with edX Inc. You can contact edX directly to find out more.
