The Open edX team is excited to announce that we are hosting a virtual conference this year! The 2021 Open edX Virtual Conference is structured as a half day event and will occur on Thursday, May 27th, between 9 AM and 1 PM (EDT). We are looking forward to bringing together leading experts in EdTech to discuss the latest research of integrating new technologies into the virtual classroom.

This year’s virtual conference will focus on shaping the future of education together. Open edX practitioners will share ideas, solutions, and tools for the challenges of up-skilling, re-skilling and delivering life-long learning.

  • Pedagogy & Instructional Design
