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 hunderds 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.
The open edX platform is a cluster of applications including the LMS or learner platform, studio or authoring platform, the ecommerce application, the insights platform and the mobile apps. Clic on the links above to find more details about the nature of each application and their functionality. Another possibility is by looking at the complete documentation located here: XXXXX You can check out this Listo fo features, which we have prepared with the Open edX community for simplifying the exploration and location of different features. Finally, exploring the platform via one demo or by setting up and working with your own site is one of the best ways to find out the different functionalities included in the platform.
