Conference (Wednesday-Thursday)

The 2017 Open edX conference is May 24 and 25 in Madrid Spain, preceded by a day of tutorials and succeeded by a project day.

Birds of a Feather (BoFs)

If you would like to have a BoF over lunch or coffee, plan to meet where we'll be having lunch. There is no limit on how many people who can meet outside, but there are a limited number of rooms. If you want a room, create your BoF in that block. Otherwise, provide some details on where to meet.

Proposed topics

Add your proposal for a topic here, and we will help facilitate finding a time and place for groups that show interest to meet!


Interested? (tag yourself using @{your name})

Insights Analytics DevelopmentAre you getting started with Open edX analytics stack development, or a seasoned contributor? Come along and share your ideas, experiences, questions, frustrations, and triumphs.Jill Vogel
Gamification in learning

I'd like to invite every interested party to meet and talk about gamification theory and practice.

Possible topics to address: Do you use it? Does it work? Adoption success stories or fail reports? How it can be applied to Open edX courseware-level. Or maybe to a corporate level.

Adaptive learning

Adaptive learning is a way to engage students and save learning time still hitting the learning objectives. Or at least it should be.

Let's share our experience, thoughts, on which instruments we can provide to instructional designers to nail adaptive learning and create a better learning experience.

Open edX mobile apps

Let's talk on mobile apps.

Do we use them? How do they compare to responsive themes? What is lacking? Adding custom content types to mobile apps (xblock mobile views)? Distribution for corporations? etc.

Learning Analytics Use-cases

Everyone wants Insights, but what decisions are taken based on the analytics-provided data? Let's face it - Open edX Insights provides very basic tools and they are all very MOOC-specific. Latest additions for per-student analytics adds what corporate sector always wanted, but is it really useful? Sharing some real-world usecases on how this data is really used would be super-helpful. Which events did you add to make it more useful? etc, etc.

(maybe it's to be merged with what Jillian Vogel proposed)
