Alex Juarez

from Rackspace

Alex Juarez is a Principal Engineer at Rackspace, touting 12 years with the company. Alex enjoys all things open-source as well as training and mentoring others, and is incredibly qualified to do so as an RHCA/RHCI. Alex has spoken at a number regional and nationwide open source conferences sharing knowledge and encouraging people to learn more. When Alex isn't helping others he's studying for the cicerone exam and trying to find places to eat and things to see in San Antonio, TX.

Open edX is the platform behind edX.org, one of the largest online learning websites and communities.

Just because it powers one of the largest does’t mean we can’t use it to power some of the smallest.

In this session, we will go over how we can try out Open edX in a self-hosted environment for a small company or organization. Once we establish how we can try it out we will go over the ins and outs of administration, customization and course creation.

We will cover best practices in creating courses as well as how to create assessments. The best practices presented will be Open edX centered but will be something that can be used regardless of platform.

Attendees will be introduced to Open edX as a platform and be given guidance on how they can try it out for themselves.

If you are looking for a LMS/CMS platform or are looking for how to establish an internal learning platform there will be something for you in this presentation.
