OpenedXHack – May 2015

France Open edX Hackathon
48 hours to imagine the MOOC platform of tomorrow


This hackathon was organized by IONISx, France Université Numérique and edX.

This nationwide event took place in 8 French cities: Paris, Bordeaux, Lyon, Marseille, Nancy, Rennes, Strasbourg and Toulouse.

It was hosted by ETNA, Epitech and ENSIIE.

Projects were judged by 18 jury members, including 6 edX team members.

Official website: (French), (English).


  • 180 attendees
  • 13 working demos presented
  • 7 groups named as winners

The projects developed by participants confirm three main current and emerging trends in ed tech: interactivity (avoiding passive content), personalization (adapting the experience to each learner), and accessibility (accessing content from any device, avoiding downloading large video files).
