    Many thanks to our gracious hosts for 2019, UC San Diego

We’re getting ready for the annual Open edX Conference, March 26 – 29, 2019, hosted by UC San Diego. This is going to be a fabulous gathering of online educators, learners and technologists, collaborating on moving the industry forward in an open source way. This year’s theme is all about collaborative learning: collaborating on the technology platform and enabling collaboration in the classroom.  

There are a few changes this year. In response to last year’s high demand, It’s now a 4-day event, complete with tutorials and in-depth training on the first day, 2 days of the main conference, and the developer summit on the last day. 

We’re looking forward to a great event – check out this blog in the near future for more information, including upcoming interviews with keynote speakers and other conference VIPs!
