The Open edX® september community event

As a listed service provider of the Open edX® platform, it was a great pleasure to have organized and participated in the past virtual community event on September 17, 2021. With this blog post we would like to share our experience.

You are wondering how it is to be part of an international community of learners, technicians, and practitioners who share the same values in the education sector. We come from different countries across the world and have different cultures, but we all have one thing in common: the Open edX® community. At regular meetings - virtual or in-person - we exchange news and trends in online learning and discuss new technologies and solutions.

Abstract Technology actively contributes to the development of this ecosystem. We are leading the Marketing Working Group which has the goal of increasing the global visibility and market-share for the Open edX® platform. Further, we are also involved in the recently established Transifex Working Group in which we help to enhance the crowdsourced translation strategy and increase the global adoption of the e-learning management system.

Why choosing Open edX® platform?

Customers choose the Open edX® platform for different reasons, but we believe the most decisive reason is the powerful built-in and browser based authoring tool Studio which facilitates the course creation, and - of course - the fast start to go-to-market. But the online learning sector is in constant motion, which means that the technology of the open source learning solution Open edX® platform must also be continually refined and advanced.

We are offering a dedicated training path and we are always committed to find and test innovative solutions to improve the user's learning experience. For example, AI systems will help us to reduce video production costs without losing quality. We are already testing different developments and solutions of this technology, which we probably share during the upcoming year. Stay tuned!

The future is today!

In Abstract Technology, we are focused on the learning experience design, and we involve our customers from the very beginning in a co-creation environment. It’s not just an issue of digital tools, but it is related to making our users comfortable in using and handling their learning space. We know the importance of collecting feedback to improve course content and this strategy keeps us always up to date!
