The Open edX platform, the software that powers edX!
This is the core repository of the Open edX software. It includes the LMS (student-facing, delivering courseware), and Studio (course authoring) components.
Installing and running an Open edX instance is not simple. We strongly recommend that you use a service provider to run the software for you. They have free trials that make it easy to get started: https://openedx.org/get-started/
If you will be modifying edx-platform code, the
Open edX Developer Stack_ is a Docker-based development environment.
If you want to run your own Open edX server and have the technical skills to do so,
Open edX Installation Options_ explains your options.
