Shaping the Future of Education Together

Online May 27, 2021

The 2021 Open edX Conference is a half-day event to bring Open edX practitioners together to share ideas about online learning techniques.

The Open edX Conference is where the Open edX community and leading experts in ed-tech discuss the latest research, new approaches to learning, and the best practices for integrating new technology into the virtual classroom. The enthusiastic, supportive community make this a unique, must-attend event.

This year’s event is focused on the growing importance of collaborative learning and how educators, students, and technologists are coming together to build the next generation of educational technology.

This smaller format event will feature a thought-leader keynote, eight practical talks, and plenty of unstructured spaces for direct connections with other attendees.

We couldn’t hold our traditional three-day conference in 2020. This year, we’re taking advantage of the virtual format to bring the community together in a different way. Also, keep an eye out for our physical gathering in spring of 2022.
