I know I can rely on their support and the quality of the code, always. They continuously contribute to the Open edX Platform, and do so in close cooperation with edX.”
“OpenCraft’s strong collaboration skills, excellence in their craft, and harmonic practices lead to significant contributions that are in consonance with the future direction of the edX platform. They play an instrumental role in the symphonic blend of the Open edX ecosystem, resulting in a profound resonance of the edX mission to provide quality education to the global community.”
“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.”

“The initiative was established to increase the public’s access to general, academic and professional education, and to make the opportunity for learning a lifelong experience. The OpenCraft team led the establishment of a staging environment for improving and upgrading our current Open edX system. OpenCraft took full responsibility for the code review and upstreaming process and led it on the highest professional level. OpenCraft’s work is professional, accurate, always on time and with a smile. They are true leaders of the Open Source community around the Open edX technology.”

What is the Open edX platform?

The Open edX platform is a powerful open source learning management system (LMS) used by organizations from all over the world to host Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) as well as smaller classes and training modules.
