Building blocks for adaptivity: a modular architecture for adaptive learning implementation and research
We demonstrate a modular architecture for adaptive learning, with the goal of lowering the barriers for using and doing research on adaptive learning. As part of ALOSI (Adaptive Learning Open Source Initiative), we developed the Bridge for Adaptivity and the ALOSI adaptive engine, two open source applications supporting a common framework for experimentation that integrates several modular components. We will demonstrate the use of this system with the Microsoft MOOC on edX, "Essential Statistics for Data Analysis Using Excel", how we used various advanced features of Open EdX (LTI provider, course blocks API, import/export, content experiments) and discuss our vision for how this architecture can support compatibility with multiple learning management systems.

Extending Open edX to Support Integration with your Enterprise Systems
Each institution has its own unique business requirements; processes which are specific to that business' operations. For those unique processes, the user interactions may occur in the context of Open edX, but the processes belong to the wider enterprise platform systems that Open edX is a member of.  This talk will explore the strategy we used to extend Open edX for integration into our enterprise systems, and what the resulting architecture became.

Map and overview of all technologies used in Open edX
A fast walk through all components you will find in Open edX's code when you start extending it. The goal is to cover a bit of everything and to discover useful tools, interesting packages, what the different acronyms you will be encountering mean. You will understand how the individual Open edX pieces connect together. Lots of new stuff!

Git Off My Lawn! or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Fork
This is a deep dive into how Stanford's engineers have managed and maintained a forked codebase: what worked, what hasn't, and what we've learned over the years. While Open edX continues to add new integration points for extending the codebase, there are still a number of things we can only accomplish via a fork. We will attempt to answer such questions as "Why did we fork?", "What did we fork?", "What should or shouldn't be forked?", and "How can you make the process easier on yourself?"
