What is the difference between edX and Open edX?

It may be hard to understand at first sight the differences between edX, the online learning initiative by edX Inc. (edx.org) and the Open edX platform. In short, edX is a non-profit initiative that delivers high-quality online courses from Harvard University, the MIT and hundreds or other consortium members, and Open edX is the technology platform that edX inc created to power this initiative. As Open edX was licenced as an open-source technology it can also be used to power many other online learning initiatives not affiliated with edX.org. Our purpose at eduNEXT is to support this type of initiatives by providing services and solutions based on the Open edX platform.

Can I begin with a Cloud subscription and later on turn to an On Premise subscription?

We recommend the cloud-based subscription model for most initiatives, it is the fastest way to get all the new features from the latest Open edX version, plus all our exclusive features that add a lot of value to simplify and improve the management of the online learning strategy. However, if you begin with the cloud services and later on want to have the Open edX platform installed and configured on your own infrastructure, you can let us know and the eduNEXT technical team of experts will assist you.

The Open edX® platform can be deployed on a variety of hosting options, including AWS, Microsoft Azure, Hetzner your on-premise infrastructure, and more.
