OpenCraft caters to private enterprises, from independent schools and startup companies to multinational firms, deploying and hosting customized training platforms of all scales and helping businesses achieve their strategic goals.
A corporate client hired OpenCraft to develop the Open edX® platform's Completion API, which provides the often-requested ability to track a learner's progress through each course by marking learning units as complete. Along with visual indicators developed by edX, this feature helps learners keep track of their progress and allows them to resume their course at the last unit they completed. The Completion API was introduced in the Hawthorn version of the Open edX platform.
OpenCraft was put in charge of deploying, customizing, and maintaining a large-scale Corporate Academy based on the Open edX platform to deliver online training programs for a worldwide management consulting firm. We implemented several supplemental features on the Academy such as Single Sign-On, Insight analytics, and Mobile Apps. We were also given the task of developing several new features for the platform, resulting in the development of the Chat XBlock, which allows learners to chat with a robot acting as a teacher's assistant on their mobile phones while in the platform. Finally, we provided the staff with consulting on course authoring with Studio.
Cloudera is a Silicon Valley company that provides open source-based analytics software and training to data-driven enterprises. OpenCraft was tasked with the deployment, hosting, and maintenance of Cloudera OnDemand, a learning platform based on the Open edX platform. The platform offers specialized courses for developers, analysts, administrators, and aspiring data scientists. OpenCraft also deployed the Open edX Analytics API on the platform as well as Single Sign-On and the iOS mobile app, along with other customization and integration work.
edX hired OpenCraft to develop a large part of Shibboleth and SAML Single Sign-On support for the Open edX® platform, allowing users to authenticate on the platform using a variety of identity providers.
OpenCraft led the development work of the Image Explorer XBlock, a visual course component for the Open edX® platform that prompts learners to explore an image containing hotspots and click the hotspots to display custom content.
OpenCraft was hired by a client to develop what would become the popular Drag and Drop XBlock V2, a visual exercise where the learner drags items to zones on a target image. OpenCraft was then enrolled by the edX team to integrate the Drag and Drop V2 exercise as a standard problem type in the Open edX® platform and to make it mobile-optimized.
