Open edX Conference 2016 summary

Stanford was a great place to house Open edX Conference 2016. The venue was brilliant, real countryside America without skyscrapers, with people of all nationalities united by the common goal. We liked fast-paced talks outside of the auditories almost as much as the detailed and interesting analysis, bright concepts and insights presented on the conference. It was also very interesting and pleasing to realize that nearly 10% of all Open edX students are studying on the projects developed by Raccoon Gang! Astonishing!

These lightning talks caused some traction:

  1. MITX is interested in using On-Campus proctoring system
  2. EdX is interested in using Multi-proctoring for Open edX and edx.org 
  3. Open edX and FUN are interested in using Examus
  4. There were more than 100 downloads from https://themex.io and this number grows daily

We would like to express sincere gratitude to edX CEO Anant Agarwal for devoting some of his time to discuss strategic partnership with us. We also made several new acquaintances and hope to turn them into friends and partners.We would also like to thank Stanford and edX.org for excellent event organization and networking. Open EdX Conference presented everyone with lots of opportunities to meet potential clients and plan for new horizons, and we were excited to be a part of it. If you were going to meet with us at Stanford and did not have the chance - feel free to contact us now, we are always open for new opportunities!

We’ll definitely take part in 2017 Open edX Conference in Madrid, Spain, as well as other events. See you there!
