Open edX

Posted on Mon 12 October 2015 in presentations • 1 min read

Open edX is an extensible, highly scalable, open-source learning management platform. Originally conceived at MIT and Harvard University, the platform it is currently backed by more than 70 organizations world-wide and serves more than 4 million students. Since 2013, the software running is available under an open source software license, enabling private and public organizations to run and operate the same learning platform under the Open edX initiative.

hastexo’s contribution to Open edX is twofold: first, we enabled Open edX to run in an automated, distributed fashion on the OpenStack platform. Then, we taught Open edX the ability to automate the orchestration of on-demand OpenStack training environments. Both are now an integral part of our hastexo Academy service offering.
