As part of the Open Education Week we organised an Open.EdX hackathon. According to Wikipedia a hackathon (also known as a hack day, hackfest or codefest) is an event in which computer programmers and others involved in software development, including graphic designers, interface designers and project managers, collaborate intensively on software projects.
Last June EdX launched Open.EdX, which is the open source platform of EdX. Open.EdX is not only used by the EdX Consortium, but also by many other projects.
As part of the hackathon I had arranged that Ned Batchelder, the lead developer of Open.EdX, gave the participants an overview on how to get started. The presentation was done via Google Hangout and is now available on youtube:
I think this presentation is useful for anyone who wants to start with Open.EdX.
The hackathon is the start of the competition. The best submissions will be rewarded at the EdX conference in June. The 20 participants have until the 12th of May to submit their project. I'm looking forward to the projects, because the ideas they had last Friday sounded really interesting and great additions to the platform.
