The Open edX Portal

See the Open edX Portal to learn more about Open edX. You can find information about the edX roadmap, as well as about hosting, extending, and contributing to Open edX. In addition, the Open edX Portal provides product announcements, the Open edX blog, and other rich community resources.

To comment on blog posts or the edX roadmap, you must create an account and log in. If you do not have an account, follow these steps.

  2. Fill in your personal details.

Documentation is managed in the edx-documentation repository. Documentation is built using Sphinx: you can view the built documentation on ReadTheDocs.

You can also check out Confluence, our wiki system. Once you sign up for an account, you'll be able to create new pages and edit existing pages, just like in any other wiki system. You only need one account for both Confluence and JIRA, our issue tracker.
