edx_logoOpen edX is an open-source platform developed specifically for educational purposes. It is widely used by top universities, educational institutions and organizations for creating and delivering online courses for learners all around the world. This non-profit learning platform was created by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Harvard University in 2012. They set their hearts on making learning possible for everyone in each corner of the world. More than that, Open edX is meant to advance learning and teaching processes both online and on campus. It enables publishing courses, learning and teaching material, content management as well as interaction with students and learners in general. The platform is extremely convenient as it can be operated on desktops, Android and iOS devices. With that in mind, let’s dwell upon selling points of the platform.

Open edX benefits

If you are still uncertain about the installation of the Open edX platform, let us define the main advantages of this platform.

Learner-oriented approach

The initial aim of the platform was to make educational processes, including learning, more convenient for the learners. The software is packed with features that allow to interact with users with the help of videos or animations, that allow learners to be engaged and keep track of their progress.

Open source

Open source nature is another benefit for developers, users, researchers and tech teams. Transparency makes it possible for each member of the community make their contributions. Security and reliability should also be considered as benefits of open source.

Expandability and personalization

Expandability of the platform allows to implement more features and accommodate the application as you wish, meaning that you can change the look-and-feel of your page according to your needs (theme, color, font, etc).

Access settings

Corporate e-learning is now possible. Open edX makes it possible for instructors to have access to each and every learner, to control the visibility of content and courses for specific learner groups.

Advanced authoring

Open edX has an extremely convenient set of tools for teachers and instructors. Open edX Studio widens opportunities for authors when it comes to managing their content and evolving it when necessary , even during the very communication with a learner. You are your own boss as all the grading policy, schedule, learner groups and content are uniquely held by the author.
