The open source platform that powers edX courses.
Open edX is open-source — meaning, it is constantly innovating with contributions from the world’s most brilliant minds. It is extensible, versatile, and can be modified to your needs.
EdX is a nonprofit online initiative created by founding partners Harvard and MIT and composed of dozens of leading global institutions, the xConsortium.
edX is committed to the open source vision, edX code is freely available to the community. Institutions can host their own instances of Open edX and offer their own classes. Educators can extend the platform to build learning tools that precisely meet their needs. And developers can contribute new features to the Open edX platform.
