The goal for this focus group is to define the delta between where Open edX is today and where it should be to be considered a viable platform for serving matriculated learners and credit-bearing programs.
Incremental deliverables will be nested below for circulating, feedback and evolution.
Idea for this focus group inspired by two similar projects currently underway:
Project at ASU - Mastercard funded initiative with the Ethiopian Ministry of Education to use Open edX as an campuswide LMS solution for 50 universities
Project with the Spanish Consortium - a grant from the EU to enhance Open edX for use as an on-campus LMS solution
Goals for the Focus Group:
Create a shared list of features and functionality required to make Open edX a viable solution for on-campus/blended use cases
Inform a vision/strategy for Open edX to serve this particular use case
Enable tCRL to identify and mitigate situations where partners are undertaking the same or similar projects in silos, or duplicating work unnecessarily
Inform prioritization of work/initiatives specific to this use case
Identify opportunities to co-create or agree on common interfaces/approaches
Function as a podium to generate funding for projects
Open question: How does this focus group work/support/align with the Community Product Working Group?
Area of Ownership
All features that support the "on campus" learning experience.
