France Open edX Hackathon
48 hours to imagine the MOOC platform of tomorrow
This nationwide event took place in 8 French cities: Paris, Bordeaux, Lyon, Marseille, Nancy, Rennes, Strasbourg and Toulouse.
Projects were judged by 18 jury members, including 6 edX team members.
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).
