What is Raccoon University and How to Use It
Raccoon University is the eLearning project built by Raccoon Gang using open edX platform functionality. It allows creating MOOC’s from scratch or uploading the existing ones (via open edX Studio), as well as participating in these courses as a student or as an instructor (via open edX LMS).
Just as open edX platform itself, Raccoon University has 2 independent domains - production and a sandbox. They are visually identical, yet they have different purpose and house 2 separate account systems. Our production domain, the Raccoon University itself, is regularly updated with the latest and stable working functionality and supports all the possibilities provided by open edX platform.
We publish only the verified/authored courses in the University. You can launch 1 course for 20 students absolutely free of charge, and if you need to deploy more courses or have a bigger audience - our pricing is available here. If you wish to enroll for any online course we currently provide - please follow this link.
Sandbox of Raccoon University
We also offer a free sandbox of Raccoon University to anyone willing to test the functionality or gain some experience in course creation and administration. We update this domain to the next release twice a month, so its work can be unstable a bit. We highly recommend not using our free sandbox for providing your MOOC’s. If you want to practice the open edX platform functionality or want to get better acquainted with open edX Studio - please follow this link.
If you already have an authored/verified course built on open edX platform and you would like to publish it at Raccoon University - please email us at email@example.com.
Should you have any questions, ideas or suggestions - we are always open for discussion!
