The conference is dedicated to Open edX, the open-source platform that underpins edX, and its novel uses in higher education and beyond. It welcomes proposals on topics from instructional design to course delivery, and how Open edX can be leveraged to tackle the ingrained and nascent challenges of global education.
The conference will span four days and include sessions ranging from lightning talks to long-form workshops and keynotes.
Three keynote speakers have been announced. Anant Agarwal, MIT professor, edX founder, and as of last year Chief Open Education Officer at 2U, will give the conference’s opening address. The two other keynotes will be given by Executive Director at Nova Paula Marques and open source expert Tobie Langel.
