Open edX MOOC Platform

Open edX is a learning platform founded by Harvard and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). It is an open source learning platform, often claimed to be one of the world’s most advanced learning management systems and course creation studio combined into one software. Open edX is used to host Massive Online Open Courses (MOOCs), which are online courses aimed at unlimited participation and open access via the internet.

Leading universities, corporations, NGOs, government bodies are adopting Open edX to offer online collaborative learning for training & development of their existing employees and to provide learning that provides grounding for their future employees, who could be any one.

Requirements for MOOC Deployment

Massive Online Open Courses (MOOCs) are online courses aimed at unlimited participation and open access via the internet. MOOCs differ from traditional online or e-learning courses in that they go beyond content delivery to focus on community, connectedness, and learner engagement.

MOOCs comprise traditional course materials such as video lectures, readings, problem sets, and interactive user forums to support community interactions among learners, instructors, materials, and associated people.

Two primary requirements for MOOC deployment are MOOC Platform and MOOC Courses. Open edX is considered the most advanced and robust open source MOOC deployment platform.
