  • OpenCraft have been an invaluable partner to edX. They have successfully architected and delivered several complex features in the Open edX platform, and are recognized throughout the Open edX community as experts in development of XBlocks. We count on OpenCraft to develop key parts of our roadmap on time and at a high quality standard.

  • OpenCraft developed two custom products for my team to expand the capabilities of the edX platform. Their performance and attention to customer satisfaction exceeded my expectations. Both tools performed the desired functions and were integrated seamlessly. I would definitely choose to work with OpenCraft again.

  • OpenCraft was a pleasure to work with. They helped through every stage of the process – from idea generation, to prototyping, construction, deployment, and testing. They were responsive to my needs and completed the work on time and on budget. OpenCraft knows edX inside out, both technically and organisationally. They are able to reach out to the right person when needed, which was invaluable to get features released on time for our courses.

  • Working with Xavier and team at OpenCraft has been a key part of our development strategy. Their attention to detail and deep knowledge of the edX platform have been instrumental in bringing some of our innovations to market. Perhaps most importantly, OpenCraft’s highly respected, active involvement in the Open edX community is a key benefit to anyone lucky enough to work with them.

What are MOOCs and edX?

MOOCs are Massive Open Online Courses. These courses can be taken wherever and whenever a learner wants.
A MOOC is the ideal way to teach a large global audience of learners.

The Open edX platform is the leading open-source MOOC platform, created by edX and its founding partners, MIT and Harvard, with contributions from countless partner universities.

OpenCraft’s Expertise

OpenCraft has been one of the Open edX platform's contributors since the very first day the project was released as open source. OpenCraft has made hundreds of contributions to the Open edX platform and its plugin ecosystem (“XBlocks”). The OpenCraft and edX teams know each other and work well together, edX being both a client and a partner for OpenCraft.

OpenCraft’s History

The core values of OpenCraft are openness, quality and commitment. All team members are senior developers with extensive experience in Python, Javascript and most of the technologies used by the project. OpenCraft believes in sharing and contributes regularly to open source projects - especially the Open edX platform. The company is decentralized, operating between both North America and Europe - allowing us to recruit the best talent, no matter where they are!
