Open edX 101 - Basic course authoring
Aimed at beginners, this session covers the very basics of creating a course in Open edX, managing it and creating content using the most basic of components. You'll work with us to create something that loosely resembles part of a course, and hopefully have some fun along the way. We'll set you up with an Open edX site to use on the day, so just bring yourself and a laptop, and get ready to collaborate.
